The New York Journal News “is Armed and Dangerous,” crosstown rival the Rockland County Times reports:

Guns are good for the goose but NOT for the gander.

A Clarkstown police report issued on December 28, 2012, confirmed that The Journal News has hired armed security guards from New City-based RGA Investigations and that they are manning the newspaper’s Rockland County headquarters at 1 Crosfield Ave., West Nyack, through at least tomorrow, Wednesday, January 2, 2013.

According to police reports on public record, Journal News Rockland Editor Caryn A. McBride was alarmed by the volume of “negative correspondence,” namely an avalanche of phone calls and emails to the Journal News office, following the newspaper’s publishing of a map of all pistol permit holders in Rockland and Westchester.

Due to apparent safety concerns, the newspaper then decided to hire RGA Investigations to provide armed personnel to man the location.

Michael Moore, Rosie O’Donnell, Piers Morgan, Barack Obama, and every other celebrity who employs armed bodyguards while publicly trashing the Second Amendment (if not the rest of the Constitution as well) are wondering what the problem is here. Perhaps Howard Dean could enlighten them.

Update: “Will the Journal News be publishing the names and addresses of its newly-hired armed guards?” Heh, indeed.™
