Could this be another robbery à la carte, from the gun permit owner maps published by the Gannet Journal News?

Your link cuts the story off and requires one to subscribe.

Here is another link.

Authorities in the White Plains case have said that it is premature to definitively connect the gun map to the crime, but that questions surrounding its involvement are a part of the case.

From reading this stating it is anything is purely speculation.

Edit for another link.

Publishing gun owners on maps is going to have the opposite effect of gun control.

People will buy guns from dealers who do not register or keep records and not register their weapons for fear of being published and targeted for robbery or burglarized.

And they will have a legitimate explanation to present in front of the court.

Publishing maps and addresses of gun owners is not protected under free speech because someones life could be put in danger, much like yelling "fire" in a crowded theatre is not protected under free speech.

Was not the 'road map' acquired through FOI in the first place? why screw yourself up with a heap of scenarios.
All criminals, including burglars have agendas, some are better than others and some are just plain stupid, they have a grapevine of their own, and if they are after something and you ain't there, they can get it, unless you live in Fort Knox, end of story. There are probably pro's and con's about knowing who has guns, but it is not an intellectual argument. The big debate is that should there be heavy gun proliferation on the street at all.
The US Bank of America raid in North Hollywood is a lesson for all. The upshot of that was the police wanting more high powered weapons, against the like of those two guys who used already high powered but also modified weapons and body armour, that was war on the street, nothing less, and no matter what, even the military does not know how to deal with that, as much as they might like to think they do.
