Statement by Senator Carlucci Calling On The Journal News to Remove their Map

Senator Carlucci Responds to The Journal News Gun Permit Map


"Lawful gun owners and all citizens have been outraged by the mass shootings around our country.  However, the timing of the disclosure of individuals possessing pistol permits by The Journal News when families are reeling from the tragedies in Newtown and Webster is troubling.  While exploiting the privacy of law abiding citizens may technically be legal, it is not the appropriate course of action.  Because of the safety concerns that have been brought to my attention by the residents of the Hudson Valley, I ask the Journal News to remove their map."

I am sure a threat of a 'time out' will protect our rights more effectively than adherence to the US Constitution. What say you?

The Second Amendment is far from clear, in the recent DC v. Heller case the ruling was 5-4.. That does not indicate clarity.

I wont even look at the Journal News again.

Yes, Journal News, what purpose did this serve except to lower your readership significantly and put legal gun owners homes in danger. Amazing idiocy.

Couldn't be all that much attention, he waited until everyone else and their mother had condemned it to join in the piling on.
