    That article by some prima donna newsreporting do-gooder that thinks he is doing society a favor by publishing names of people that are licenced by the state to partake in a legal activitiy, is so flawed in logic that I am not going to waste any more of my time on a response.








    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    Are You Trying To Say?

    That the media twisted the truth?

    I support publication of statistical data like how many CCW permits have been issued by county or by state. However, names and addresses of private citizens should never be made public. Well, any more public than they already are...

    Several attempts by media to access the CCW database here in CO have occurred. The Attorney General simply said "no".

    Desire to know <> need to know. There is no significant societal benefit to knowing which law-abiding citizens own firearms. It's about as momentus to know someone's Lutheran, or eats Wheaties, or uses Chevron gas instead of Mobil. There is only damage dished up, when such a list is compiled. So long as a crime has not been committed, it's nobody's business or need to know, and even then it's only the need of those directly involved with that criminal case. Firearms ownership may well become a factor of the prosecution for the criminal act, but in and of itself mere ownership/possession has no bearing on anything other than that person's desire to stay safe. To trundle out this information to the public is an absolute evil, IMO.

    I know I was one of those that was named, and compared to sexual preditor. Made me want to puke. I sure hope it never happens again, the more they can make my records and such private, the happier I will be.

    IMHO the public has NO right to know anything , be it criminal convictions or ccw info .

    If you are a member of a community ( i dont care if its your building or your town ) you soon find out about new folks thro the " grapevine " If you are unwilling to interact with the folks around you then what they have done or are doing is none of your business .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .
    We only begin to understand folks after we stop and think .

    Criminals are looking for victims, not opponents.

    The Fredericksburg, Virginia Freelance-Star has one again published the names of local CHP holders (Different event from the Roanoke Times). This paper does this from time to time. The Virginia Citizens Defense League is fighting back. Here is a link to this recent outrage.
