They could unite with convicted pedophiles and demonstrate for their privacy.

Why are you comparing a gun owner to a convicted sex offender?

Is it illegal? The problem with information which is "public" knowledge is that people never had practical access to it until recently. IMO, most of the information should no loner be public. At a certain point, even publishing the "wall of shame" for convicted criminals becomes a "cruel & unusual" punishment. How are they supposed to function in society?

Free speech goes both ways

Quote:
Gannett was exercising their right to free speech by publishing the names and addresses of all legal gun owners in 3 NY counties. I’m sure they are fully supportive of having their names and addresses published across the internet. Isn’t free speech a bitch?

Sauce for the goose or, home address and phone number of Journal-News publisher
White Plains newspaper The Journal- News, a Gannett publication, has published the full name and address of every licensed pistol permit holder in three New York counties. I don’t know whether the Journal’s publisher Janet Hasson is a permit holder herself, but here’s how to find her to ask:

(UPDATE: Uh oh – InstaPundit’s linked here. Hundreds of thousands of readers; Janet, you have a great Christmas Eve)


Full list of their addresses, facebook accounts, emails, pictures of their homes....

Instant Karma's a bitch :lol:

Cool. Does look like they covered a lot. Though I doubt it'll result in much.

Why are you comparing a gun owner to a convicted sex offender?

I think it was an ironic statement, since there is an infamous publicly accessible database of sex offenders in the US. If there was also a publicly available database of gun owners then on a Venn diagram there would be overlap where privacy concerns are concerned. That's how I would explain it to anyone who failed to get the reference.

Otherwise they are equating you with a paedophile. Which, although possible, I would hope is untrue.

Anyway, isn't a pedophile someone who likes to have sex with feet?

So: does a pedometer detect child molesters?

Yes. New York has the highest number of pedometer concentration anywhere in the world.

:D
On the other hand, what DO you call someone with a foot fetish?
I hate this confusion over ae/e and oe/e. Already made reading medieval Latin harder than necessary. It should've been corrected when dictionaries were made. English orthography is a mess anyway.

Apparently it is podophilia, with "o". And I always maintain that the British spelling is the most correct, in spite of any evidence to the contrary.

in a few states the lists are constitutionally protected from FOIA requests.

Ah, of course podophilia. Better that way than mixing Latin and Greek. I agree that the British spelling with ae is slightly better than plain e, but considering it stems from Greek pais which is spelt with ai it's still awkward.
When I said English spelling earlier I meant all of English, be it British or American or whatever. It's basically broken.

Yeah, US should have chosen Spanish, at least the rules are consistent in that language.
