Is tracking down illegal gun owners more important to you than knowing where legal gun owners are?


How would you feel if your name and address were published online because you own a gun? While many gun owners' info ends up on lists that can be viewed by the public, do you disagree with making this info as easily accessible as possible by for instance, removing the trip to a courthouse to request the info in many areas or by putting it all online or in a newspaper? Is going this extra step, good, bad or ugly in your opinion?

    Whether home or not, the list could tempt some to burglarize and steal them. Cops were included on the list @ lohud.com. The most helpful list would be names and addresses of illegal gun owners handed to police and ATF.

    I am happy that a blogger posted the names and addresses of those working at that newspaper. Perhaps they'll get a taste of what it feels like to be exposed for no valid reason.

    I agree and think that going the extra mile to remove the step of going to the courthouse to see in person is not a good idea. There's always lists, and some can be compromised but let's not hand it out like free candy to kids on Halloween.

    Then why in Washington D.C., where we have some of the strictest gun laws, do we have the highest crime rates including homicide? Making gun's illegal and disarming law abiding citizens would stop guns like it stopped alcohol during Prohibition.
