    My comments were solely on the issue of "outing" people you disagree with for the sole purpose of having members of the public take matters into their own hands.

    Your persecution complex is amazing.
    Again, nothing retarded about standing on a principle - if it's wrong to out people, when it's people you sympathize with, it is also wrong to out people when you oppose them. It's really pretty simple.

    I made no comments about the government policy - however, you cannot deny that the only reason the names were published was so that members of the public would act. It's true in each case, even if the consequences may be potentially, radically different.

    Personal insults against me don't change those simple facts.

    I am sure when people are being murdered in Uganda they will feel terrible about the plight of those who had their gun ownership outed in the United States.

    This post is nothing but sarcasm and doesn't actually say anything at all.
    I'm hurt. Really. Here I try to consistently ascribe positive motivations to the people that were gleeful and happy about a newspaper outing CCW holders and you and Sanga insist that anyone that was actually happy about the paper doing so were nothing but scumbags that wanted to see those people hurt. Well excuse me if I dont agree with your cynical outlook.

    Some criminals invested in securing weapons would be a bit more inclined to target homes where they knew the weapons were. Or...are you saying that like the New York papers, the Ugandan press is really just warning people that disagree with homosexuals not to go to their homes to try and sell donuts and paper subscriptions? Oh...wait...you think that the NY papers outed the CCW holders so the criminals could stay safe and clear of the homes and similarly, the Ugandan press was doing that for the Ugandan people.

    No...I like my intent better. Like the NY papers...they just want their neighbors to keep an eye on them so that they can help them stay safe.

    I doubt it, but then they probably wouldn't understand the sad need to use sarcasm rather than apologize either.

    You know when every single post is sarcasm, you aren't saying anything at all.

    Why apologize? Your point was stupid and meaningless and added nothing to the thread but a cheap and obvious attempt to derail the discussion into gun rights by drawing a broad parallel between the two situations. When challenged on it you pretend to be butthurt and proclaim yourself a follower of the principle of limited disclosure. Meanwhile, as we speak, people terrified for their lives are likely scrambling to hide. But oh, you sure do get to use their plight to score a few cheap poltical points for a completely unrelated issue. What next? Compare gun control to the Holocaust? Ammo controls to the Black Death?

    Apologize? Please. Not for pointing out retarded comparisons.

    1-Their neighbors will never let that happen, especially now that they know where they live, and 2-Its a shame they dont have a Constitution and a second amendment to enable them to protect themselves.
