Report: Journal News Map-listed Guns and Permits Stolen From Rockland County Home

Posted by on Jan 17, 2013 at 2:35 pm

Well, that didn’t take long. Great job, Journal News.  This is now reportedly the second home burglarized that just happened to appear on the gun permit holder list in December.

Two handguns and two pistol permits were stolen from the New City home of a man whose name and address are listed on the website of a local newspaper as possessing gun permits, police said.

The thieves ransacked the house Wednesday night, breaking into two safes on the home’s third floor and stealing a third safe. The guns were in the stolen safe, police said.

Clarkstown police said they had no evidence the burglary was connected to the controversial map.

As if the thieves would leave a copy of the map as a reminder.

“The burglary is still under investigation and there are no facts to support this correlation at this time,” Clarkstown Sgt. Joanne Fratianni said in a statement. “If the investigation develops further information, it will be released accordingly.”

Family members at the burglarized home refused to speak Thursday and police are keeping reporters off the property on the quiet suburban street.

“At this early point in the investigation, we believe it is a random crime and the home was not targeted,” Clarkstown Det. Lt. Charles Delo told News12.

The burglary comes less than a week after a White Plains homeowner who, too, was listed on the Journal News website as having gun permits, arrived home to find his home burglarized with jewelry missing and an attempted break-in of his gun safe. The thieves were not successful and no guns were stolen.

Naturally these media elites are cowering in silence as they await their Pulitzer Prize.

The newspaper has not responded to numerous calls for comment.

The head of the White Plains Police Benevolent Association, Robert Riley, has been one of the fiercest critics of the Journal News map, saying it puts the lives of police and ordinary citizens in potential danger.

    Thieves open two safes that do not contain guns and remove the safe that does. Thieves ransack home and remove pistol permits.
    Nah, no connection to the map.

    At what point ,does the staff of this newspaper recognize that the publication of this material places the citizenry at risk.What introspection and dialogue took place among these writters to even publish this folly?The obvious answer is none -my viewpoint supercedes anything else -Iam the Media Elite.

    Good luck in court.Moreover, David Gregory will not lift a finger to help you.

    Okay am confused. What pistol permit was said to be stolen?
    The individual is permitted not the gun itself and if required that would registration of the gun vs a permit right?
    DO people keep gun permits in a safe? Its at end of the day a simple form of ID with picture etc. This story smells a tad funky to me. Will await further information should any outlet provide it.

    Not connected? Yeah right. And if they had printed the location of someone’s valuable jewelry collection and then a burglary took place; who would accept that the two weren’t connected?
