Any unresolved problem segment tonight the journal news it's a New York area newspaper it's facing intense criticism.
After the -- posted a match on -- the web site showing the names and addresses of local gun permit holders.
Since hosting the database the paper has been inundated with complaints.
But is there any illegal -- course of these folks joining us now from Los Angeles.
Attorney and a heat -- got far and from New York criminal defense attorney Steve Greenberg.
I'll take kids this thing.
About the gun permit holders and they just I think I think knots because.
We did some looking -- -- -- we can't find any record I'll start with you Steve.
Of this newspaper Bob -- publishing the names of sex offenders or their addresses right those people actually committed crimes these people.
-- -- -- legally permitted to do south what do you say about that.
Well I think it's irresponsible.
There's no real reason for it other than to put these people on some kind of map but I understand their outrage in May be.
Legal lawful -- to share this kind of public information.
But it's clearly irresponsible because these people -- going to be subject to.
Potentially feeds coming in their houses taking their guns targeting them and so -- And ended newspapers reasoning well it's because of what happened and in Newton masters -- -- -- In your town beyond Connecticut Utah Connecticut right start.
It makes no sense because.
-- someone know that they -- lady had eighteen guns.
There's still were no red flags there's no connection between gun ownership and the kinds of things they're trying to target yeah.
They simplify this story ahead on -- and it paid on the let me simplify this.
That news journal on never -- -- never heard about it before but apparently -- a newspaper.
And it does have some circulation.
It -- anti gun agenda.
Doesn't believe people should really owned guns and it thinks people will own guns or have permits -- -- guns.
-- probably by check in on knuckle dragging -- that's that's what I imagine the editors of this newspaper thank that's why they decided to put their -- little map.
Irresponsibly on there out website which is just how a finder's mansion for anyone who wants to rob a house -- knocking out of that house.
But I'll go to -- house -- around the issues.
-- it doesn't have a weapon got.
I agree with you I agree that not only is this irresponsible it's dangerous.
Now I support the Freedom of Information Act which is the basis by which the newspaper got.
That I'm names and addresses of these individuals but.
That should not -- trumped by comments -- There's absolutely no legitimate basis other than what she's stated for the news people to newspaper to have publish this information.
And it's a danger to just to society and I believe that there should be legal recourse -- away.
However I think I get value out where's the ACLU on that -- steam or enemy and they come out that any thing.
I have recently I haven't I gone unseen the ACLU definitely island -- Exactly but I support senator balls.
Legislation that he's trying to get past that would.
And sure that in the future information contained on these gun permit applications remain privates.
-- -- and it's just isn't beyond irresponsible this is agenda driven reporting and it's clearly and intimidation tactic against.
Anyone who is it lawful gun owner -- a lawful act ought to own a gun to -- a permit to do so.
Different types of permits in New York.
The lawful act that's an act -- -- appear intimidation.
I think it is abominable and I hope people watching us make their views heard.
To this news journal newspaper and any advertisers -- supported frankly I find it to be incredibly outrageous.
Let's go to this other case that's a little -- more goofy but still have the legal implication.
I CLU also should call their offices about that not news journal case but the Iowa case involves the dentist Steve flu virus is assist them.
And -- vice -- assistant because she is amounts to.
Well -- attractive nuisance.
That term attractive -- -- something -- a lot but we'll use that apply to her because she was very beautiful and he thought she could potentially be a problem with his wife.
You found her attractive so we fired -- that I was Supreme Court -- no -- Right and end of the problem with this is is their.
Script sort of splitting hairs which is what lawyers and judges do for a living.
She was only attractive because she was a female so what they should've focused -- with the fact she got fired because she was a female.
And that is actionable I think that the court came down.
Wrongly on this case because.
You know his wife said fire I think you're gonna be -- -- -- -- and that's -- she's a female.
While mistake I think if -- -- female on weighed 400 -- in god -- there may not might not about that in fact -- -- sense I mean it's out.
I don't think it's just that -- -- think about right over my brain are not good and -- -- -- notice saying he -- especially -- crafted well that's why you found her to try and partly because she was a feeling well.
They could have found her attractive because she was a match and because it was a Meltzer write because and that's it happened as well so I can't discriminate on gender iPad and we got a guy that's right -- I'm sorry and it made up accounts -- -- appreciate it.
