As I reported below, the White Plains, New York-based Journal News is continuing its war against New York permit holders, despite having had their own personal information posted on the Internet.
Now a reader forwards this write-up, Gluttons for Pain: NY newspaper to publish more addresses of gun owners, along with some suggestions for further counter-action.
I read this article off American Thinker this afternoon, & thought I'd pass it on for you'all to post and pass on.My 2 cents worth of thought -- anyone living in the areas affected by this "news"paper needs to go out and have a Boston Tea Party with this paper. Paint it, ruin it, cut it, rip it, destroy it, make it unreadable and unsellable. Unless the vending machines are the property of the "news"paper, leave 'em alone. They're the personal property of someone else trying to make an honest living. Same with stores, book stores, kiosks, and front porches - do not destroy. We want to keep the good will of the people with us.Show this bird cage liner the meaning of "Play stupid games, win stupid prizes."
Others have suggested that perhaps a small window war is in order. Of course my previous record on the the topic of Sons of Liberty tactics is matter of fact. But what I think is that at the moment we don't know enough about the economic links of this rag to the wider world -- stock holders, advertisers, etc. Perhaps they would like THEIR personal information posted for all to see.
Regarding the newspaper boxes themselves, one tactic that has been used in the past is the use of crazy glue squirted in the coin slots of the machine. Another is the use of a plastic or metal key to open the box through the coin slot (USA Today used a curved plastic piece) and removal of all the papers. Folks who don't have access to a key can simply, for the cost of one paper, avail themselves of a volume discount and remove ALL the newspapers from the box, depositing them in the trash some distance away.
It will be interesting to see what happens, now that these collectivist ideologues have raised the ante. As my correspondent says, "Play stupid games, win stupid prizes."
