Blogger Retaliates Against Newspaper’s Gun Map, Prints Names And Addresses Of Staff
On Thursday, a blogger took to CNN’s Early Start to explain why he decided to publish the addresses of many of the The Journal News‘ staff after the paper published the names and addresses of gun permit holders in several counties.
“Well, I just thought they were being hypocrites,” said Christopher Fountain said. “In the aftermath of Newtown, it was obviously one tragedy, but somehow they were conflating legal gun owners with some crazed tormented devil up in Newtown and putting the two together. And I was offended by that and I wondered how they would like it if their addresses were published.”
Fountain began by publishing the home addresses of some of the newspaper’s staffers and later linked to an interactive Google map displaying the information.
