    your name and address were to be published in the local newspaper?

    Apparently The Journal News in NY has decided it was appropriate to publish the names and addresses, including an interactive map, of all registered gun owners in Westchester and Rockland counties. I wonder whether that newspaper will have the balls to publish the consequences of such a violation of privacy?

    Is it not a matter of public record?

    It is a matter of public record, but isn't really sweet that a newspaper did all the research and made the criminals' "jobs" easier?

    Ironically and poetically, the morons who posted the addresses are just providing information to criminals as to which houses not to burglarize.

    That is true. But they also have a ready source of locations to go to 'acquire' more firearms, too. Easy, peasy...stake out the target and wait for the homeowner to leave. I'm wondering whether there will now be a increase in homeowner self defense cases and how a paper of this caliber will cover such defense, most likely involving firearms wielded the victims?

    I'll stick with my assessment. The outers have defined where the Gun Zones are. Reality demonstrates criminals' preference for Gun Free Zones.

    I agree with your assessment.

    How convenient for the criminals.

    While the gun owners are at work, the burglars can have their pick.

    Desperation stretch #132.

    Only in the fantasy comic books of the gun nuts who actually think the world works this way. Or tell themselves this to try to rationalize the perversion.

    Think about it: if these names are already public record, and the burglars are in the public.... duh?!

    It's an attempt by the liberals to #1, get guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens and into the hands of criminals, and #2, to hopefully get a few gun owners killed.

    They're just stand up folks.
