The Journal News in Westchester County has hired an armed guard to protect its staff.

The paper released the addresses of gun owners and left many people enraged.

EARLIER: JOURNAL NEWS PUBLISHES GUN OWNER MAP.

Now the paper is concerned someone could retaliate.

Soon after the Newtown massacre, the paper published a map showing addresses where people had gun licenses in three counties.

In turn, a reader published the information of Journal employees on a blog.
