...armed security guards to protect them and the Journal News business' property? That is what has been reported by Politico here:
The Poloitco piece is based upon this other one in the Rockland Times:
I almost peed my pants, I was laughing that hard at what I could only see as being the inevitable hypocrisy of media leftists. Pay attention when you read the Rockland Times piece, especially about the so called threat that Journal News Rockland Editor Caryn A. McBride reportedly thought the Journal News had received.
So, while they are against the regular citizen owning firearms for protection, or so it would seem to me, they are apparently all in favor of their own private security force being armed for their own protection. But you must ask, protection from what! There are no reports of threats made against them that I have seen. The only threats it seems, were two emails that McBride reportedly perceived as threats enough to alarm her to the point that she wasted the time of the police by reporting both. The police looked at them and determined they were not threats at all. "However, the police did not find the communications in question actually threatening." (source)
As of yet, all they actually have received is merely a lot of negative feedback about the interactive map they produced, the one that gives out the names and residence locations of pistol license holders in Westchester and Rockland counties in NY. Now they are seemingly trembling in fear because of people, other than the media, who have taken the liberty to exercise their right of free speech. In response to that exercise of free speech, and the fear apparently invoked by that exercise of free speech, the Journal News evidently has hired gun toting security personnel to protect themselves. I ask again, protect them from what? Is it from words or from people who exercise free speech or just from their, so far, unfounded fears over nonexistent email threats?
If all of this is true as reported, then I think that once again, those in the media, who are on the far left, show their absolute hypocrisy when it comes to gun rights and their absolute lack of true grit.
All the best,
