You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

The proper response is to research the addresses, phone numbers and places of employment of all children and relatives of all of the newspaper's staff, plus that of all staff members - along with as many photographs of each of them personally and of the front of their houses - plus estimated income of each - as can be obtained - and of all delivery employees on a similar blog and interactive map for anyone who wants to look them up.
That way if anyone has a story to report, they have the maximum available information to do so with.
Now contrast that with places like Texas and Oklahoma. No permit is required to purchase a gun. So no such list can even be obtained. Further, there is not permit required to transport you guns. Oklahoma even has open carry now. So even if you know a particular home has a gun, you don't know if the owner took it with them or not.
You are correct, not having one doesn't allow it to be stolen. But it also leaves you more vulnerable to attack. There is no realistic or possible way to remove all guns from American society. So you can post all you want about people not having them, rant all you want about taking them away, but keep in mind, it ain't going to happen, at least not in our lifetimes. And if you think they should be taken away and advocate for others to do it, I want to see you personally and anyone else calling for removing them, amongst those who come for mine. If you are unwilling to risk yourself for you belief, what right do you have to demand that others risk their lives for your beliefs?
Be sure to work hard and get lots of overtime. People on welfare want more steaks and free upgrades to smart phones with unlimited data packages.
This is why civilians have to buy their guns from 3rd party vendors (i. e. gun shows) or illegally, to avoid being tracked.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
What an interesting dilemma we find ourselves in. Here we have a person using his First Amendment rights to criticize the Second.
If constitutional rights should be unlimited, then what this person did should be protected under free speech.
Oh, and just to be clear, I am strongly opposed to posting the locations of all those gun owners on a map.
The important question people should be asking is what was the purpose for this story in the first place? Seems like an irrational, agenda driven response to a tragedy. Let's see... 26 people including 20 children get gunned down by a deranged psychopath so how about we gather the names of all LEGAL gun permit holders and make them part of an interactive web-page so people can see exactly who and where they are???
Forgive me, but I'm at a loss for just what in the hell they are trying to accomplish with this...
