    If criminals had any sense, they wouldn't be criminals.

    I don't believe there are too many home robbers who aren't armed

    Totally false. Crime pays, or else there wouldn't be any criminals.

    Re: Newspaper sparks outrage for publishing names, addresses of gun owners

    There appears to be some confusion in this thread. A criminal is merely someone who breaks the law, not necessarily someone who is malevolent. A man who buys a gun illegally to defend himself is a criminal, by definition, but not bad.

    Similarly, a bank that lobbies the federal government to give it a taxpayer bailout is definitely bad (it's a thief) but is not breaking the law.

    All smart people--both good guys and bad guys--break laws when it's logical for them to do so and where doing so doesn't trample on their ethics. The only difference is that bad guys have fewer ethics.

    Thats kind of why they shouldnt have access to intel that shows which houses are armed and which are not. If they dont know, they may find that crime extracts a final payment. We also call that a deterrent.

    My thoughts exactly. It's just bizarre.

    The newspaper did it to make money. Figured everyone would buy a newspaper to see who of their neighbors are in it.

    A few years ago, someone/s stole the condenser coils from my A/C unit. They took the unit apart to get them. In the end, they did more work and made less than if they had spent that same amount of effort and time at a minimum wage job.

    Yes, some crime can pay for awhile, right up until they get shot or arrested and spend many years behind bars, perhaps the rest of their life. What is the current life expectancy of the average ganger drug dealer in major cities today? Yep, pays real well, doesn't it.

    Why are you rolling your eyes? I do not understand.
