Burglars steal two guns from home featured on weapons permit map published by newspaper, just days after break-in at another address on the list Two addresses that appear on map of legally owned guns published by Journal News on December 23 have been burglarized in last week Guns, permits and valuables stolen from home in New City, New York, on Wednesday Thieves broke into house and attempted to steal guns in White Plains, New York, on Saturday By Daily Mail Reporter Thieves ransacked a house that features on the gun map published by the Journal News, just days after another home on the list was also targeted. Burglars broke into the house in New City, New York, on Wednesday and pried open two safes, before leaving with another one. The criminals escaped with two handguns, two pistol permits, cash, savings bonds and jewelry. The firearms were in the stolen safe. Burglars also broke into a house in White Plains, New York, on Saturday and headed straight for the gun safe. The thieves struck at this house just three weeks after the names and addresses of legal firearms permit holders were published on the controversial gun map published by the Journal News More from The Daily Mail… Shocking video shows homeless man being choked to death after shoplifting toothpaste from a Chicago pharmacy Two prison inmates claimed $1.1billion in tax refunds last year among more than 173,000 others fraudulently filed by inmates .The paper caused a stir on December 23 when it listed thousands of permit holders in suburban Westchester and Rockland counties just north of New York City in an interactive map. The break-in at Britta Lane, New City, was reported at 9.45 pm on Wednesday evening. Clarkstown Police stated that they currently have no evidence of a link between the burglary and the gun map. Clarkstown Sgt. Joanne Fratianni said in a statement reported by : ‘The burglary is still under investigation, and there are no facts to support this correlation at this time. If the investigation develops further information, it will be released accordingly.’ The thieves broke into two safes on the home’s third floor and removed a third safe from the basement, that contained a .45 caliber Colt and a .22 caliber Iver Johnson. They also stole pistol permits from Rockland and Orange counties, and other valuables. The home owners have refused to comment publicly. While police believe this was a ‘random crime’, others are not so sure, and many are speculating that the map is now being used by criminals for targeted gun theft. Stupid is what stupid does. What the Journal did was STUPID, very STUPID. They are getting themselves deeper and deeper into hot water and it is not going to stop. They’ll eventually and most likely be sued by everyone on the map they posted.
