    This Is Very Poor Judgement...

    on the part of the newspaper...but we already know that, don't we?

    This has happened in several states...but in one place (just where, slips my mind right now) a gun owners group published the names, addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses of all the newpaper employees... in the same paper. Needless to say, the 'newspaper employees' were upset...fair for the goose and gander thing...

    I've about had it with most newspapers in this country...not much different than a newspaper under a dictator...publish 'both sides?'...never...just the side of the secular progressives...(as O'Rielly would say...)

    There are few news sources that deliver unbiased and balanced stories about ANYTHING.

    Sad times...

    The Constitution gives people the right to own guns in this country, and it also gives people the right to know whether they own a gun or not
    So...... They published this as public service to remind people that they owned guns?

    Yeah I think it was the 3rd ammendment that says "The right of the people to know whether they own a gun or not"

    QUOTE]"We did take it into consideration and did not publish your street address, which is also public information."[/QUOTE]

    Did this guy not consider the fact that the phonebook has done his dirty work for him...or the internet...or various other sources that can give somebody an address they want. With guns having such a large illegal market it is like a guide as to which homes to break into in the city. This is a very good example of why even if you don't have children in your home, you need to have some sort of safe/lock box for you firearms. Unfortunately there are some gun owners who don't bother to think about it.
    My town in Indiana did a similar thing. They didn't post the names of permit holders, but they did print statistics of how many permit holders there were in each zip code in the county. Anybody who wanted to up their odds of finding a gun to steal on a B&E just had to read the paper that day (incidentaly this "news" of concealed carry in the town was apparently Sunday front page worthy, complete with a big picture of a Smith and Wesson Revolver.)
    What absolutely dumbfounds me is that the idiot "journalists" seem to actually believe that they are helping the community by pointing out that there are people who legally own and carry firearms. Nevermind the part of the point to concealment is to keep your 2nd amendment choice a private matter, they try to make neighbors afraid of each other for doing things that have been going on quitely for years. On top of that, they have made the community less safe, by inviting criminals to look at the information, and up the likelyhood that they can find an unsecured weapon.
    The uninitiated should be asking themselves who the real danger to the community is...firearms owners wanting their rights to guns and privacy, or journalists and their right to pulic information?

    30,000 names just don't fall through the cracks. The editor must think we are stupid.

    Kansas has already said that the CCW holders list will not be made public. As far as gun owners in general? All people need to do is check the phone book, just about everyone listed will have a gun in Kansas. l

    The Cleveland Plain Dealer has been publishing the names of permit holders since we first passed our carry law. I think they hoped to intimidate us. They went to posting the lists on their website after a while (I think they didn't get the reaction they wanted.) I wrote the editor and cancelled my subscription and havn'tread their anti-gun rag since. They are known for printing slanted anti articles. There is currently legislation pending that will, I hope, stop this practice, which I think was illegal to begin with. My hope is that the paper will get sued and have to pay.

    Personally I think, in the interest of fairness of course, that the names of people who do NOT own guns should be published too.
