    Evidently it's not just American media that has lost it's sense of journalistic integrity. Nevertheless, good for Uganda that they passed this bill. Contrary to false accusations in the media, the law does not require people to report homosexual activity.

    IF of course that was their intent and not just to promote community safety and encourage neighbors to watch out for one another.

    Except that "outed" and "attacked" mean two wildly different things here because one is a direct threat to the lives of 200 people, and the other isn't. The scale of the impact is vastly different.

    This post is nothing but sarcasm and doesn't actually say anything at all.

    You can protect yourself, if you're home - not everyone who owns guns spends 24/7/52 in their houses awaiting intruders - not everyone living in a house is the gun owner/carrier - not every gun owner who has a CC permit has only one gun.

    As you can see, if you identify homes that likely have guns, that allows someone to target that house when nobody is home, steal any guns within, and then use those guns illegally.

    You actually have to be able to think through the consequences of smart-ass moves like "outing" anyone for any reason.

    So, you're a criminal. When picking a target, you're going to go to the house where you know for a fact someone is armed?

    But the CCW license would indicate the gun likely travels with its owner, making robbing the house a futile effort to acquire a gun.

    Your comparison is RETARDED!

    Homosexuality is punishable by life imprisonment in Uganda.

    Gun ownership is a protected Constitutional right in the US with one of the strongest political lobbys in the world.

    Your persecution complex is amazing.

    Can we get you on record saying that you would support locking up gay couples for life in the United States? I figure if you are going to applaud it in Uganda, you should indicate why you would or would not support it here.

    Again, you assume that every gun owner only has one gun - if there are 300 million weapons in the US owned by citizens, that would dictate your assumption is utter nonsense.
