When New York's Journal News published an interactive map revealing the names and addresses of legal gun owners in Westchester and Rockland counties, their intent seems to have been to heap shame on those gun owners and direct public ire toward them as well. However, one other thing they unwittingly accomplished was letting criminals know which homeowners are unarmed and therefore, which homeowners could be sitting ducks.
Think about it: The release of a list of the homes of legal gun owners is simultaneously a hint at which homeowners are not gun owners.
It is absolutely astounding that the Journal News would make such an attempt without thinking about the liability involved. Yet it's also illustrative of how the real left operates -- in their minds the safety of people is not that important. Rather, it's the further imposition of their ideology that counts.
Therefore, in this particular situation, the Journal News apparently doesn't care that it has just let criminals know which homes may be easier targets for crime, because unarmed. All that's important is that they followed their ideology and tried to embarrass gun owners.
