Living in fear.
Ever since a New York newspaper published an interactive map locating gun owners its employees are now period for their lives armed guards are stationed outside the journal news offices and there's also extra security outside the home of publisher -- -- So what does a publisher had to say about all this.
Griff Jenkins hit the ground to find out.
-- we're here in white plains new York at the headquarters of the journal -- they of course published.
The names and home addresses of the gun permit holders an area.
We came here because we want to speak with the publisher and president Janet -- son with a lot of questions for her does she still stand by her decision and why we're just not -- and see if the doors locked.
Concedes well buildings very secure we've had some security function and a fondness and urged him to see if anyone will not.
Hi how aria.
Are you at the journal news.
-- -- what's your name in -- what do you thoughts about the controversy over the gun permits.
But it did you do you support the decision here -- -- and -- -- made to publish the names.
Of the permit holders.
Now that it's had a reaction and that it has.
And coming guys thinking that apparently.
They're not talking here.
We did not have any luck reaching this a sign that her office we've come to her home which given the nature of this story.
Her home address has been made public here in the -- neck New York.
-- -- dogs let's not conceived she's him.
A -- -- Griff Jenkins -- bucks is mr.
Is -- your son.
Chris you know your wife a -- -- -- mr.
Which -- -- more time.
Just a quick question.
And tonight they hits keep coming and it now there is a brand new and there is more criticism of the journal news gun owners map.
Rockland county times -- -- -- -- -- and scroll off is here with the very latest.
Done I understand that there is -- prom would be accuracy of the map.
Greta I asked thanks for having me back down this battle between the first and Second Amendment put on by the journal news in the new remains interesting.
At a press conference Friday Pope -- Colorado County -- after denouncing the journal news told me that.
The map that -- people were looking that was not even.
It's written with.
Deceased permit holders expired permits and I -- it's.
-- -- me why they would publish that information.
So let me get the straits let's say ten years ago -- -- an island in the county.
I bought a gun went to the runners but has registered the clerk's office -- moved to Washington DC so that address where I lived in men that county.
Now -- be reflected on that map and there's no way for this Connie clerk's office even to make sure that he meant any.
Any part of this map is accurate is that.
Well the journal news chose to bub publish that information.
Whether they haven't means to to sanitize that.
And remains to be seen I'm gone and gone to do some data mining and see what we can do.
-- be almost impossible for the many in the office says that they have no way to get make sure their information is correct they even release it to the newspaper and then the newspaper -- at a track down all those midnight and again go door to door so.
As a good likelihood that this is even a bigger mess -- let me ask that question back.
Inmates and are now making remarks to correctional officers who live an -- -- -- Absolutely and and the press conference Friday that brought together all the party leaders -- in Rockland county did announce the journal news.
Sheriff Lou Falco -- revealed that inmates were getting it addresses -- corrections officers and joking and taunting.
Them about it.
With the way they were getting this was by.
Talk -- -- their friends and family over the phone who are looking at the Internet.
And of course the inmates know the names -- their correction officers.
Of course right.
And also not a lot of New York City cops.
And one of the most listened Mitt mysterious things about this map.
-- why they put it why would they put it out there.
There's not that many permit holders in Rockland and Westchester County it's not.
The biggest gun culture and that's a very large percent of those people are police officers correction officers and out people who need to gone.
For the for professional reasons so what's the point of outing them it doesn't make sense.
I and a state representative who doesn't have a gun in the act in the area sadly is decided he needs a gun permit because of everything -- going down.
And this is actually not an uncommon reaction we've had according to court -- grotto triple or more.
Volume of permit -- still.
Application request people do not want to be on that map.
As soft target for a burglary.
And also I think people are feeling defiance and I don't blame them.
Yeah I don't know what the rules are in their statement seems to me that -- the clerk's office could've said when they made the first request for the of the information the Freedom of Information Act -- it.
You know we'll get a -- but first we have to make sure that it's even remotely accurate and could've probably bought enough time I -- bought thirty years while they do go through I don't know what the rules are but that giving up the wrong information certainly has complicated things in and -- yeah a lot worse.
This people who are very second they see their deceased parents' names on there and that's not something they want to see I think thanks for having me -- -- and a and they don't like this story Iraq -- times dot com.
Great low -- -- back thank you don't back.
