THIEVES STEAL GUNS From ANOTHER HOME ON NEWSPAPER’S ‘GUN MAP
#1

Quote: Two pistols and related permits were stolen from a home in New City, N.Y. The owner of the firearms was listed on the newspaper’s controversial map — leading some to wonder if the criminal act and the publication are connected.

Once inside, they “ransacked the house” and broke into two safes, stealing a third. The guns were apparently in this latter unit that was taken out of the home by the criminals.

police are saying that there is no direct evidence, thus far, that the burglary was related to the publication. In fact, at the moment, authorities believe that the home was not targeted — something police will continue to investigate.

The Clarkstown case may or may not have a connection to the map, however this is the second incident involving a gun owner on the map who has had his or her home terrorized by burglars. Previously, a White Plains, N.Y., home was targeted, with thieves ultimately failing to open a gun safe and retrieve weapons. That investigation is ongoing as well.

Authorities in the White Plains case have said that it is premature to definitively connect the gun map to the crime, but that questions surrounding its involvement are a part of the case.

Misleading thread title is intentionally misleading.

This should be the title:
Quote:there is no direct evidence, thus far, that the burglary was related to the publication.



Seriously. As much as it fits the main concern I have over such a disgusting publicized list, what evidence is there to lead anyone to believe it was a targeted home?

If they HAVE guns that happen to be stolen, there's a 50/50 chance that the gun owner has a "permit".

Wasn't that what they published? "Permit holders"?
If not - if they published ALL GUN OWNERS, then there's a 100% chance that a gun owning victim of a random burglary would be on that list.


Make sense?

Texas AG Gregg Abbott is running online ads targeted at NY to move to Texas stating that it has "more freedom".


Being a former Texas native, I could point out a lot of fallacies with that statement. But as a gun owner you'll generally be happy in Texas. If you prefer to carry everywhere you go though, you will be quite unhappy with that state (NO OC, and it's illegal to let your gun print so you have to wear baggy clothes or be pretty good at concealment---that's kinda hard to do if you like to wear nut-huggers and overstarched western shirts).

It's also hotter than the surface of the sun in that state 7-9 months out of the year so... there's not that much opportunity to walk around in baggy easy-to-conceal hoodies and jackets.
