You don’t remember Caryn? She is was the editor of the Rockland County Journal Register who decided, in the wake of Newtown, that outing legal gun owners was the responsible thing to do. The paper then published the names and addresses of every registered gun owner in Rockland and Westchester counties in New York via an interactive map. Sure, you remember now. Gun owners weren’t pleased because they became targets for thieves looking for firearms. Non-gun owners weren’t pleased because burglars knew the houses to knock over where they’d be less likely to meet serious resistance. At least one burglary was tied to the printed list. Figuring turnabout is fair play, competitor rocklandtimes.com printed Journal Register employees’ addresses and contact info. Threats against the paper caused its publisher to hire armed guards. Under withering criticism, the paper finally pulled the map . . .

Two months ago, the White Plains-based newspaper admitted that the information it published was badly outdated. The paper acknowledged many people had a dot on their house, indicating there was a gun permit at that address, even though they didn’t own a gun.

Oops.

Now wnd.com is reporting that McBride was among a group of Journal Register employees tossed by publisher Janet Hasson in yet another dead tree publication bloodletting. No one’s saying whether or not the address kerfuffle – which made the Journal Register a target of ridicule from coast to coast – played into the decision to can her. But it couldn’t have helped.

In these difficult times when job can be scarce, particularly in print media, maybe the Armed Intelligentsia will want to take up a collection to help Ms. McBride through this difficult time. Or not.

  1. Don’t worry about her. Within 24 hours this apparatchik will be working for some Democrat political group.

      • I so wish we could hack his TelePrompTer. Like Ron Burgundy, he will read anything you type.

        “Go f*ck yourself, America.”

    • my friend’s aunt makes $83 hourly on the laptop. She has been unemployed for eight months but last month her payment was $13781 just working on the laptop for a few hours. Go to this web site and read more… C­A­ℕ­9­9.C­O­M

        • Aren’t you an OFWG, Ralph? Which would make your friend’s aunt really old. And probably saggy. Gross. ;-P

        • An aunt can be younger than her nephews and nieces.

          OFWGs can have younger friends.

          Dawn Wells did a Playboy centerfold while in her sixties.

          Never ass-u-me anything…

      • So “Pauline”, that means your friend’s aunt does it on the laptop at least 166 times a month, or 39 times a week.

        That’s truly a lotta’ goo!

  2. Or we all sh!t in ziplock’s and mail them to her?
    I bet you can fit a lot of scat in a flat rate box.
    I do suppose its all illegal stuff to mail scat to people. Shame that.

  3. See if she will write for ttag.
    See how she likes her anti gun take on things edited and sent back
    until it is pro gun.
    Heck, enough of that, and maybe she will reflexively start writing with a pro gun tone.
    Make her one of us…one of us…one of us…one of us…
    Or not. 🙂

  4. Roses are red, violet’s are blue,
    Karma’s a bitch, this one’s for you.
    The stunt you pulled, enraged the whole nation
    Hope you are enjoying your extended vacation.

    • I really like your poem, it says in a nice way exactly what I was thinking, except your version didn’t need to be censored like my version was gonna need.

  6. So bye, bye Ms. Caryn McBride
    You got the boot, what a hoot
    Did you think you could hide?
    Us good ol’ boys took you for a bad ride
    Thinkin’ this will be the day that you die
    Knowin’ this will be the day that you die

  7. Good.

    With the pool of cushy jobs for journalists and editors rapidly dwindling, news like this going through the newspaper industry serves as warning that there are real consequences to pulling these stunts.

  8. This is why it is important not to register your guns – Because you become a target on a map. A target to criminals looking to take your weapons and a target to liberal progressives looking to take your weapons.

  9. Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah (breathing) hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah!!!!!

  10. I am sure some apolitical rag will pick her up and put that genius for destruction to good work.

  11. “In these difficult times when job can be scarce, particularly in print media, maybe the Armed Intelligentsia will want to take up a collection to help Ms. McBride through this difficult time. Or not.”
