Bad intentions result in bad consequences

Instead of exposing New York gun owners and stigmatizing them as dangers to society, the Journal News, by publishing their names and addresses, has endangered them all one way or another.

Apparently inmates in New York are using the gun-permit map that got published by the Journal News last month to intimidate guards at their respective prisons. Because hundreds of correctional officers live in Westchester and Rockland counties, the "associates" of inmates now know where the families of guards live.

In addition to endangering the families of corrections officers, at least one woman who purchased a gun for protection against an abusive boyfriend from whom she was hiding, is terrified that he now knows exactly where she lives. When he attacks her, will the Journal News accept responsibility for that?
