THIS is why we oppose gun registration, libs and Democrats can’t be trusted with our information

I made the point yesterday, and today the leftist-leaning website Gawker made my point yet again today (via Twitchy, I’m not linking to Gawker because that’s probably why they pulled this crap, website hits) :

Clearly not content to come in second place to the privacy-violating jerks at the Journal News, Gawker has published a list of all legal gun owners in New York City in 2010:

So lawful gun owners are “assholes”? Stay classy, Gawker.

The worm who wrote the piece, John Cook, published the names from a reportedly two-year-old list he obtained from NYPD via FOIA request, but he didn’t publish the addresses because, as he put it, the NYPD refused to give him that info (again, not linking to the piece):

Below is a 446-page list of every licensed gun owner in New York City. I obtained it from the NYPD two-and-a-half years ago via a Freedom of Information Law request. Because the NYPD is more interested in raping and/or eating ladies and spying on Muslims than it is in honoring public records law, the list contains only the names, and not the addresses, of the licensees. [NOTE: links removed from the above text block]

Now, here’s where the schadenfreude hits the fan. Someone angered by Cook’s actions obtained his address and posted it on Twitter, causing Cook to blink tears from his eyes and exclaim:

Again, he would have published the info, but couldn’t get it.

Yeah, he’s butt-hurt, and I’d feel sorry for him, but…I won’t. Not even a little bit. Would I publish his address? No, but I won’t lose sleep over it happening to him either, and neither should any liberal who may be reading this. John Cook set his own side’s arguments for gun registration on it’s ear:

As Twitchy reported, online gossip rag Gawker published a two-year-old list of legal gun owners in New York City. The stunt left gun rights advocates fuming, and many are now more fiercely opposed than ever to gun registration:

Well, the guy made my point for me. The leftist/liberal Democrat ideologues in the media today can’t be trusted with our private information.  Again they treat law abiding citizens as if they are criminals while at the same time excusing the actions of real law breakers by blaming those actions on inanimate objects, like guns.

Publish every bit of information on him that can be obtained – his phone number, what kind of car he drives, how much money he makes, especially any arrest records and judgements, negative employment histories, bankruptcy filings, credit rating, known aquaintances with less than stellar reputations – all of it.

If people stop hitting their link, if conservatives stop giving them linkage eventually they too will be like Politico and laying off their “workers” and they are “workers” because they are the communist left!!

Gawker was whining that his address had been published, said he hadn’t published the gun owners’ addresses. Except that his article indicated he would have but for the fact the police would not give them to him. Agree with you Bob, everything about these sanctimonious lefties should be out there. This is all part of the “wahr” VB talks about, lefties won’t stop trying to take power from the people until we fight back and stop them. I’m glad to see turnabout is fair play. Same for the newspaper that published names AND addresses of Winchester and Rockland County gun… Read more »
