The West Nyack Journal-News, which published a map of gun permit holders in their area, have hired armed guards to protect their building after receiving threats, as reported by a competing paper, the Rockland County Times. Competing newspapers sure know how to hate, so from the Times’ perspective, the whole thing boils down to hypocrisy and overreaction. The Journal-News says it’s going to publish more maps so whether the threats were real or not, they’re not working.
The comment thread on the Times’ story is the usual high quality observations found in the comments of most newspapers, so if you want to do some nutpicking, enjoy it.
