Yet another unintended consequence of that idiotic gun owner map printed by the Journal News:

A White Plains residence pinpointed on a controversial handgun permit database was burglarized Saturday, and the burglars’ target was the homeowner’s gun safe.

At least two burglars broke into a home on Davis Avenue at 9:30 p.m. Saturday but were unsuccessful in an attempt to open the safe, which contained legally owned weapons, according to a law enforcement source. One suspect was taken into custody, the source said.

The gun owner was not home when the burglary occurred, the source said. The victim, who is in his 70s, told Newsday on Sunday that he did not want to comment while the police investigation continues.

Great job, gun-grabbers!

“The police are doing a full investigation,” the man saidthrough a partially opened front door.

There was broken glass in the backyard Sunday and a ladder leading up to a second-story window. Neighbors on the street of modest, Colonial homes said they had heard about the burglary.

The homeowner’s name and address were included recently on the controversial interactive map of gun permit holders in Westchester and Rockland counties published on The Journal News’ website.

Normally I’m against the ubiquity of litigation in America, but I hope the man considers suing the paper for their incredibly irresponsible printing of the addresses of gun owners.

    Oh not so fast with the “unintended consequences” meme. I believe the Journal was hoping for such an incident and to go one further, they wanted it to end in the guns being used in a crime.
