Last month, as a Christmas gift to burglars so they know which homes to avoid, the suburban New York paper Journal News published an interactive red-dot maps featuring the names and addresses of people in two counties who have permits to carry guns. However, a more telling piece of information for the general public would be the name and location of all the criminals who have guns.

Here’s that map — every red dot indicates a criminal with a registered firearm:

    If criminals, aka; "outlaws", don`t register their guns, then how can the left argue against the truth WE understand, "When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns" ? No doubt they will NOT argue against it; they will simply continue to ignore it !

    More of the "We Know Where You LIVE!" smack from the professional Left to know and love. We've had any number of "Conservative Outings" and there's even audio of radicals plotting to "put every Tea Party member's Name & Address posted online!"

    So it's not nearly as much ( to me anyway ) about our imagined 'infractions' as it is about the psychological warfare of: 1) Criminalizing Conservatism, 2) Bullying us into submission and 3) Claiming the technological high ground in the battle for hearts & minds.

    Whether they're abusing public resources on the taxpayer's dime, spreading fear and misconceptions about Conservatives or saturating trad. media channels 24/7 it's all to the same end: Decimation of Conservatives and attaining 1 Party Rule. How is spewing negative stereotypes about gun owners and TP mbrs. any different than actual racists saying all blacks are dirty or all Jews are swindlers..?

    They can print my address and rob my anti-gun neighbor with the softball bat instead.

    Gun registrations and carry permits are matters of public record, but Tea Party memberships are for the most part by association, not registration, so for a lefty to publish a TP membership list, they`d first have to hack an email list. That`s the only place I can be found and I`ve been a "member" since early on !

    I saw this article over at Newsbusters. You got to love it when a Democrat makes the case Conservatives have been making for years:

    Legis. Aron Wieder (D-Spring Valley) called the publication of the list "irresponsible journalism" and said he now fears for his safety because the map broadcast that he does not have a gun license. At the news conference Friday morning, he handed a $150 certified check and a completed pistol permit application to Rockland County Clerk Paul Piperato.

    "I never owned a gun but now I have no choice," Wieder said. "I have been exposed as someone that has no gun. And I'll do anything, anything to protect my family."

    "You got to love it when a Democrat makes the case Conservatives have been making for years:", but have been poo-pooing the whole time. Now they are responding to the reality they`ve denied – "Gun Free Zones are invitations to criminals" !

    It is of course inappropriate to call for shooting these irresponsible journalists, but maybe a little "behind the woodshed time" could go a long ways !

    But that would be very hard to do. Remember thes anti-gun journonazis have hired armed guards to protect them from the public who was outed by the paper for being armed.

  9. Truesoldier__ on January 7th, 2013 2:07 pm

    I heard one of our local commentators make a great point this morning. He pointed out that the only other group that has their address posted online like this are registered sex offenders. This is a blatant attempt to intimidate legal gun owners who are exercising their Constitutional right into submission. I am just glad to see that the back lash they have received has been far reaching and continues to do so. It might actually make the Congresscritters think twice about pushing the gun control legislation that they, and Obama, would love to pass.

  10. SignPainterGuy on January 7th, 2013 2:11 pm

    Oh, fer certain ! I was just dreamin` !

    Speaking of lefties being armed and / or having armed security forces; how much ya wanna bet Dianne f`Einstein`s personal pistol is black and scary looking just like the ones she wants to ban ?

  11. SignPainterGuy on January 7th, 2013 2:21 pm

    "Journonazis"; most apt, fitting, apropos !

  12. Truesoldier__ on January 7th, 2013 2:52 pm

    No she made sure she had one that is hot pink with Pearl handles just to make sure she isn't a hypocrit……/sarc

  13. SignPainterGuy on January 7th, 2013 3:08 pm

    "Pearl handles", ah haaa ! Gen. Patton had something to say about those ! "Only a pimp from a New Orleans whore house would have pistols with pearl handles !" He preferred ivory !

  14. Truesoldier__ on January 7th, 2013 3:23 pm

    Hence why F'einstein would have pearl over ivory.

  15. SignPainterGuy on January 7th, 2013 3:28 pm

    There ARE some dems who oppose it, so there is hope that it will never see even a startup. The perpetually panicked will continue to scream for it, no matter what !

    Pelosi however is calling for Zero to be more dictatorial and just call for gun control by edict / EO !

  16. SignPainterGuy on January 7th, 2013 3:32 pm

    Yep ! I started to allude to Cali as the land of Fruits n Nuts or something !

    Btw, do you recall the two side arms carried by Gen. Patton ?

  17. Truesoldier__ on January 7th, 2013 5:02 pm

    Well why wouldn't she. She is also calling on Obama to raise the debt limit based on his limited understanding on the 14th ammendment, so she is just staying consistent.

  18. Truesoldier__ on January 7th, 2013 5:07 pm

    Here you go:

    Periodically, Patton would wear the Smith & Wesson .357 Magnum in place of the Colt .45, but it was an exception rather than the rule. As proven by "wear marks", the Colt .45 was the usual weapon worn in the right holster of the set. The Smith & Wesson .357 fits the left holster exactly.

    Although the Colt .45 and Smith & Wesson .357 are the so called "favorites" worn by the General, over the years Patton collected and used many different pistols. In Europe during WWII Patton had a small .32 caliber Colt automatic pistol which he called his "social pistol". He usually wore this .32 in a small clip-holster in his right hand trouser pocket when he was in the rear areas. He wore it inside his jacket as an additional "safety precaution" when he was in the front lines. On rare occasions, such as the formal ceremony when Patton turned over the command of the Third Army to Lt. General Lucian K. Truscott, Patton wore a more "subdued" weapon; a Colt .38 snub-nosed Detective Special with black, hard rubber grips."

  19. Truesoldier__ on January 7th, 2013 5:08 pm

    The .357 Magnum replaced the other Colt .45 that Patton gave to Hollywood actor who came to the front lines to entertain the 3rd Army. Patton felt that any Hollywood namby pamby that had the guts to come to where the war really was had earned a weapon of their own.

  20. SignPainterGuy on January 7th, 2013 8:43 pm

    Well done, Lad ! :-) I was just curious if you knew he wore a western-styled six-shooter, .45 cal., and a more "police-styled" .357 Mag. revolver !

    I Binged him and went to a photo gallery and saw lots of pics of him wearing the guns and several of the belt, holsters, mag. pouch, bullet-loop combo. Being a General had it`s perks; granted him much latitude in his choice of personal weapons and carry styles.

    I found it a bit surprising he didn`t carry a couple (or at least one) Springfield .45 cal. Mod. 1911s w/ ivory grips.

  21. Truesoldier__ on January 8th, 2013 4:05 pm

    I have always been fascinating with Patton. I loved his gruff no BS attitude. Sure it got him into troule sometimes, but the fact that he didn't play into the political correctness game and spoke what was on his mind is what gained him the respect of his troops. They knew where he stood and exactly why he stood for it. That was rare back then and has nearly become extinct today.

  22. Truesoldier__ on January 8th, 2013 4:08 pm

    Also, not sure if you heard the story about Patton (then only a LT) and the Olympics? He was the first member of the Army to be in the Olympics (1912 I believe) on the pistol team. He had a dispute in the games as he told the judges that all his shots hit the target and the reason they believed that one missed was because it passed right through the same hole. The judges disagreed and he took 4th instead of the Gold.

  23. Truesoldier__ on January 8th, 2013 4:10 pm

    Years latter, researchers took the targets and all the data to 4 different scientists for evaluation of Patton's claim. None of the scientists knew that the others were working on the same analysis, but all came to the same conclusion (to include their computer models) that in fact the hole was slightly oblong and larger than the other holes and concluded that a second bullet had indeed gone through the same hole.
