New York newspaper The Journal News earlier this week said that it would hire armed guards after receiving threats -- including an envelope of "suspicious white powder" -- that could have been retaliation for publishing the names of gun permit holders in Westchester and Rockland counties. The newspaper has defended its decision by insisting that readers had a right to know who owned guns in their area in light of the recent mass shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.
Fox News host Sean Hannity, however, told Coulter that the situation was "really dangerous" because criminal who wanted to "rape, rob and steal" could find out which residents did not own guns.
"This is a wake up call to New York state," Coulter agreed. "To make these a public record has got to be changed."
"Why aren't we getting the names of recently paroled criminals?" she wondered. "People with gun permits, by definition, do not have criminal records. Why can't we get the criminal records?"
Coulter continued: "Why can't we get a record of women who have had abortions? They get money from Planned Parenthood, they get money from Medicare, from Medicaid. Much of this is tax subsidies. I think mothers might want to know what other women on their street might be willing to murder a child."
