    I agree with you. There is no compelling public interest to know who hunts or carries legally, if an individual steps out of bounds and commits a crime it's fair game. There is a reason to know whether people who hold the public trust such as doctors, lawyers, etc. are in good legal standing, not their private residence, but their pracitice site, etc.

    Unfortunately this paper exploited the broad nature of freedom of information laws and abused the intent of such. This was a law meant to make government records transparent to the press by law, so that things couldn't be hidden by government employees in various agencies and positions. This abuse of that law was unexcusable.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Again...only appropriate if you believe that by posting the names of registered weapons owners they have put those people at risk and if so, then they are absolutely an enemy that must be dealt with adequately.

    No they aren't an enemy, they are some reporters trying to drum up attention and do a story they think is going to get people to use their news source. When you use words like enemy in this context you undermine the meaning of the word.

    Again, do you want to endanger people? Do you really want to do that, think about it. What does it say about you?

    AH...then surely if their actions did not engdanger the lives of gun owners, then the reciprocal action cant possibly be a threat to them. Now it is just a complementary breach of privacy.

    But I agree that their actions did, it increased the danger to the people in that map from criminals AND the people not on the map because now they have a much better idea of who does and does not have a gun, in fact I made a whole topic about it. But still that does not justify endangering them in turn to wackos who may attempt property damage or assault them personally over these political issues

    And its not like the gun permit owners were at any risk, other than having their privacy violated; the staff of the Journal ARE at risk to having direct revenge taken upon them. Good idea in jeopardising the safety of tonnes of people many people are apparently angry with.

    The man who posted this information is as much and idiot at deserves are much scrutiny as those that posted the gun-permit owners' information.
    This map didn't highlight people who own guns. It highlighted people who don't own guns; telling every scumbag in the area where the easy victims live. Those are the folks that should be pissed off; the ones that now have a big sign on their house saying, "rob me, rape me, kill me, because I'm totally defenseless".

    Yeah, but it's ok for a private citizen to violate your constitutional rights.

    Makes sense to me!

    And maybe by doing this those advocates of 'no gun zones' will maybe for once in their lives really, truly, understand that by making a school 'gun free' you make it a target!

    Hopefully, no none will be hurt as a result of this lesson.

    Then we disagree. Those that intentionally endangered firearm owners did so for cause and they will not stop. I dont think it makes a whole lot of sense hunting them down and beating the **** out of them but I DO think when you recognize you are at war (and make no mistake...this IS a war-Dianne Fienstein, Sen Schumer, this paper...they have very clearly announced their intention and that is the very definite and intentional attack of peoples 1,2, and 4th amendment rights) a very solid first return volley is to demonstrate just how easily that shoe can be placed on the other foot.
