Gun control nuts and liberal politicians are going absolutely crazy after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown Connecticut that killed 26 people including 20 children. As is their modus operandi, any time there is a crisis, instead of focusing on the problem at hand and looking for a real solution they simply use the tragedy or perceived crisis to advance a political agenda.
Never mind that what the powers that be are proposing would have had absolutely no effect on what happened in Newtown Connecticut, that isn't what they are really interested in. Even if statistics bear out that none of what they do matters, they can tell their constituents they did something, they have advanced an agenda and now they have more control.
In their ridiculous ploys to remain relevant to voters and to gain more control, tools, stooges or better called useful idiots, unwittingly help the control freaks advance their agendas. As pictured above with a screenshot from the liberal rag website Gawker decided they would publish "A List of All the Assholes Who Own Guns in New York City."
Gawker of course needs readers like any blog including Is That Baloney, but they care zero about the truth and simply want to sensationalize the coming Second Amendment fight over guns and gun control. In their quest to be sensational and print the names of gun owners in New York City they may have opened a can of worms they did not intend to as some writers and employees of Gawker are getting death threats now. Good move you stooges.

The Gawker blog posted a searchable list of licensed gun owners in New York City, following a controversial move last month by a newspaper in nearby Westchester County to publish a map of pistol permit holders.
The information was obtained from the New York Police Department via a Freedom of Information Law request, Gawker writer John Cook said yesterday in a posting on the blog, which is owned by Gawker Media LLC. The 446-page list dates from 2 1/2 years ago and contains names but not addresses.
The move thrusts Gawker into a growing debate over gun control and the privacy rights of firearms owners. Activists and lawmakers such as New York Governor Andrew Cuomo have proposed stricter gun regulations following a Dec. 14 shooting at a Connecticut elementary school that left 20 children dead.
The Journal News drew outcry last month when it published a map showing the names and addresses of handgun owners in Westchester and Rockland counties. The Gannett Co.-owned newspaper, based in White Plains, New York, also aims to provide data on bordering Putnam County, though it said officials there havenâ€™t complied with the request.
Last week a group of Rockland County lawmakers held a press conference vowing to make gun-information confidential.
Gawker said in a separate post yesterday that its staff began receiving death threats after its gun list was published.
