New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Urges Boycott of New York Journal News Advertisers

ALBANY, NY (12/31/2012)(readMedia)-- The New York State Rifle & Pistol Association is calling for a nationwide boycott of advertisers of the New York Journal News because of its decision to publish a list of lower Hudson Valley pistol license holders online – this time with a searchable map.

This wanton act by the Journal News has put in harm's way tens of thousands of lawful license holders. This action can only be viewed as an attempt to intimidate and bully lawful gun-owning citizens. The data posted also includes active and retired police officers, judges, battered and stalked individuals, FBI agents, and more. The Journal News has made no credible case, nor offered any valid reason, for releasing the data, and it serves no investigative or journalistic purpose. It merely invites harassment and burglary.

Below is a list of major national and local advertisers who run their ads in the Journal News. It is important that concerned citizens contact as many of these advertisers as possible. A short letter which starts by quickly outlining the irresponsible Journal News act of publishing the names and addresses of pistol license holders (and a Google Map with directions and family members' names) would be best.

State that you will no longer patronize any advertiser who uses Gannett (the Journal News' parent company) until and unless that advertiser withholds further ads until Gannett takes down the pistol licensee Web page and ceases attacking lawful firearm ownership. In particular, contact advertisers with whom you already do business, and who may know you personally.
