    I'll say this much, any "journalist" that would participate in this kind of stuff is no "journalist" at all. So reap what you sow oh "journalist".

    I agree. Journalists only duty is to report facts, not make stories. A person minding their own business is not a story, breaking their anonymity by publishing that list was. Sad thing is the journalists just made the case against registration much stronger because of this, unintended consequence on their part.

    Anyone else wondering why the information was public in the first place? Why should other people be able to know your name, address, and whether you have a permit or not?

    Not really. What this second list proves is that they can poke the bear and get him to growl. The whole point was getting a reaction, and they got it. If some vigilante gun nut decides to screw with one of these journalists it completely justifies their position in the first place.

    I imagine that any sort of government list of permit/license holders (drivers, chauffers, hazmat, doctors, etc.) would necessarily be on the public record.

    Because the state of New York requires a registration, that registration is not protected against freedom of information laws. It forced people to make their names available in order to exercise their rights.

    Correct, which fell under freedom of information laws. It's ridiculous all around.

    I agree. Ultimately it hurts the cause of journalism and highlights the dangers opponents of registration list and databases have been arguing for years. Truly a hackneyed performance by a group of "journalist" that don't resemble journalist.

    I would just sue them into poverty if anything happened to me after the publishing on the grounds of endangerment.

    Ic, I can understand if occupational licenses were public, like doctor's/dentist's etc. but more personal licenses like fishing/hunting licenses and gun permits shouldn't be made public I think.
