Hey, Janet Hasson, Cyndee Royle and Nancy Cutler, Its Payback Time

Stage 1:
A newspaper in New York has received a wave of criticism from its readers after publishing the names and addresses of all of the individuals with handgun or pistol permits in its coverage area.
Hundreds of residents in New York's Westchester and Rockland counties were surprised to find their names and addresses listed on a map posted by The Journal News on Sunday. Users can click any dot on the map to see which of their neighbors has a permit for a gun.
The map sparked more than 500 comments from readers within a day of its appearance on the website, many of them voicing outrage at the paper's decision to make the information public.
The full article can be found HERE

So what would a proportional response be for the individuals whose details were published? Track them down and leave a horse's head in their beds?

Oh no, they're a bunch of conniving ne'erdowells down there

Stage 2:

The following has been published on literally hundreds of pro-gun blogs around the world

These are the phone numbers and addresses of the people that had the nerve to publish the names and addresses of the legal gun permit holders a few days ago in their news paper. Go and give em a piece of your mind.

Apparently these are the addresses of the "journalists":

Journal News President: Janet Hasson, 3 Gate House Lane Mamaroneck, NY 10534 (914) 694-5204
Editors: Cyndee Royle, 1133 Westchester Ave., Suite N110, White Plains, NY 10604, 914-694-9300
Nancy Cutler 9 Woodwind Ln, Spring Valley, NY. (845) 354-3485
Parent company of The Journal News Gannett CEO Gracia C Martore 728 Springvale Rd Great Falls, VA 22066 (703) 759-5954
The reporter on the story is Dwight R Worley 23006 139 Ave Springfield Gardens, NY 11413 (718) 527-0832

Oh yeah, these people gave as good as they got.

Now try and Google your own names Janet Hasson, Cyndee Royle and Nancy Cutler. You won't be getting any relevant results until page 20 at least!

What An E-commerce Website Shouldn't Look Like

I despise websites that make it nearly impossible to buy from them. I'm also lucky enough to work in a position where I can control my own clients' websites (to some degree) from becoming evil.

Instead of showing you a variety of naff websites, I thought I'd show you how Google sees websites that just don't help users. Their explanations are great and should be shared to the world!*

School Shooting: Sandy Hook Elementary

The murder of innocent children.

What should our reaction be and what is our gut instinct?

My gut instinct reacts to the pain and anguish for the kids and their families. My reaction is to listen to all sides int his argument.

Like Insomniac Medic, here, I'm confused. I've discussed numerous times before, and again this week, with people in my office who say 'ban all guns' but that just cannot be the answer, if only because it's slamming the barn door shut after the horse has bolted.

The best, most level headed and expert opinion I have read has been from Larry Correia who is now a successful (and gifted!) author, but before picking up the pen, was a gun store owner, weapons instructor and gun enthusiast. I strongly suggest you read his excellent piece 'An Opinion On Gun Control'.

If, after reading Larry's opinion, you are still worried that the government are coming to take away your rifle or ammo, read this piece by AnarchAngel 'Stupidity, Politics and Math'.

And remember - let's keep safe out there.
