In an ironic twist, a Westchester, New York, newspaper that ignited a firestorm by publishing a map with the names and addresses of legal gun owners is apparently now seeking protection from armed guards because of it.
According to the Rockland County Times, the paper that published the interactive map, The Journal News, has hired armed security guards employed by New City-based RGA Investigations to watch over the publication's headquarters in West Nyack, New York, because of the negative comments posting the map caused.
No violence has been reported, though some readers turned the tables by posting the names and addresses of some of the paper's staff online.
Despite the furious response from gun owners who claimed the paper was putting their homes in danger from criminals looking to steal firearms, the paper refused to cave, insisting it would post more sensitive information from those with permits in neighboring counties.
