Gun owners can do more than complain about anti-gun newspapers

They’re ba…ack.

The Journal News is still trying to get the names of New York pistol permit holders. Not just concealed carry permit holders, which would be bad enough, but all handgun owners in Putnam County, and they’ve filed a lawsuit to compel the information to be released.

They say they only want it for their story-checking ability and won’t publish the names like they did before, but not only is there no reason to trust them, bottom line it is none of their business who owns a gun. It’s none of the government’s, either, but that’s another column.

They argue it’s not their fault that guns were stolen in break-ins at three homes on the map they published, and present their own analysis of burglary rates to justify that conclusion. Forget the former burglar who said the paper provided “a gold mine of information.” For some reason, Bart Simpson comes to mind.

Thank God for Ohio!
Of all the guns I once owned, I NEVER had any paperwork, except from the private seller.

And only three from a gun shop back in the 80s and early 90s before everything and everyone went nuts.

And any future guns I buy will all be private sales!
