Gun Map Strikes Again
You may recall the "gun map" published a week or two ago showing the locations of pistol permit holders in a three country area in New York. A few days ago, a house on the list was broken into, the burglars found the gun safe in the home and attempted to make off with it. Nothing else was disturbed. Suspicion is that the map assisted the criminals in choosing their target.
- Two handguns and two pistol permits were stolen from the New City home of a man whose name and address are listed on the website of a local newspaper as possessing gun permits, police said. The thieves ransacked the house Wednesday night, breaking into two safes on the home's third floor and stealing a third safe. The guns were in the stolen safe, police said.
Clarkstown police said they had no evidence the burglary was connected to the controversial map.
"The burglary is still under investigation and there are no facts to support this correlation at this time," Clarkstown Sgt. Joanne Fratianni said in a statement. "If the investigation develops further information, it will be released accordingly."
[...] "At this early point in the investigation, we believe it is a random crime and the home was not targeted," Clarkstown Det. Lt. Charles Delo told News12.
We though Chicago had some pretty heavy denial issues, but that is some bad "head-in-the-sand" thinking right there.
