But think of the children! The asshole newspaper editor who published the names and addresses of NY area gun owners, ignoring the public outcry at the invasion of privacy, was going to publish more gun owner addresses. Except now one county is telling them to stuff it, and a state senator is talking about making a law giving gun permit owners privacy rights.
Putnam County Clerk Dennis Sant said, “Since The Journal News has published this map, Putnam has received hundreds of calls from Putnam residents urging us not to release these records … There is the rule of law, and there is right and wrong and The Journal News is clearly wrong. I could not live with myself if one Putnam pistol permit holder was put in harm’s way, for the sole purpose of selling newspapers.”
Have you noticed that every time the left tries to clamp down on the Second Amendment, it seems to leap up to bite them in the ass? Barack Obama’s talk about limiting gun ownership has guns flying off the shelves now. Look, I agree that the Newtown tragedy was horrific–but the shooter was a nutjob whose mother was a nutjob who owned guns and did not keep them properly secured. How is publishing the names of law-abiding gun owners going to prevent something like that?
Go, Canada: The Canadian diplomat who saved Americans during the Iran hostage crisis has died. A moment to think of him and thank him is in order.
