    I haven't seen the source of this claim either. I'm 100% with you and sounds like a meme created to give a false reason to lambast the article.





    It's simply a public list of people that have applied for and received, renewed, or modified existing handgun permits in the last 5 years. It doesn't mean the permit holders even own a handgun nor does it specify any information whatsoever about their collection of handguns. Further, it absolutely does not mention rifle owners, since those do not require a permit.





    However in this thread:



    1.) List has likened pistol permit owners to sex offenders



    2.) List gives criminal a detailed inventory so they know who to rob



    3.) Has compromised undercover police officers and outed them

        1.) The list is obviously meant to take advantage of the current stigma and fear out there that gun owners are all dangerous. In that sense putting them out there (as they do sex offenders) only serves to create more fear and reinforce the negativity going around. We list sex offenders as they have proven they are dangerous. Gun owners that abuse it are in jail and/or no longer have permits so they wouldn't be in that group. Even creating a list saying you need to know who the gun owners are implies there is something wrong with gun owners as you need to be aware of them. Vilifying law abiding citizens is bull****************. This article was clearly not mentioned for any other reason but to stir ****************.



        2.) No it doesn't give a detailed inventory but it will cause problems. If I was a thief, and had that map, and needed a gun I would case a house for a bit so I know when people leave. Then I would hit it. New Yorkers have a hard ass time getting carry permits so unless the owner is breaking the law chances are that the gun is at the house. No owner home and I know a gun is there... DING DING DING. Here we are talking about guns getting into the wrong hands and we're taking a lot of the risk out of the game for the would be thieves and telling them right where to go. On the flip side I would most definitely hit houses without gun owners before robbing a place. Yes they might still have a shotgun or rifle but people that would go the extra step of securing a permit etc seem like a lot more of an inherent threat than someone that doesn't.



        3.) It's totally possible and given the number of people on the list it is likely that someone, whether a cop or otherwise, is less secure now that their name is out there as opposed to it not being out there. A lot of your info is public. Doesn't mean you want it on a billboard as most public information still requires requests. Very few things available at the click of a mouse.



        So let's recap. Vilify law-abiding citizens that went out of their way to secure a permit as opposed to just having an unregistered gun. CHECK. Let people know where they can find a gun and also let people know who is likely to be unarmed and vulnerable. CHECK. Possibly put a spotlight on someone that needs to stay in the background, CHECK.

Although, it might be right after the next presidential election when some Dem wins the white house vs the tea party candidate that marshallnoises was sure won the popular vote only to be cheated by illegal immigrants who voted with fake names.



            But seriously, I can totally picture him as one of those people who won't throw anything away because he is sure he'll need it when the gov'ment comes fer his guns.




            You picture me totally wrong. I think you are just a tool.

He'll continue to sit at home waiting for gangs of black people to break in to his fantasy fortress so he'll finally have cause to shoot someone.




            LOL! That is rich considering you started a thread about what you are drinking on Christmas Day. Internet? Check. Starting a thread because he is an attention whore? Check. Arguing with someone on the internet on Christmas Day? Check.



            I think you are just projecting again. What is your post count? You really shouldn't cast stones in a glass house.

            As often as marshallnoise refers to gun ownership as being on the same level as being a pedophile, I'm beginning to wonder if we're all missing an obvious attempt at confession. The guy is a loon, no doubt, but his paranoia spins to pedophilia way too often to be coincidence.




            Where is the paranoia? How is listing people as if they were a pedophile on the internet for owning something perfectly legal not a scare tactic? Isn't that the real purpose of Megan's Law?? Intimidation? I don't disagree with intimidating convicted sex offenders into not committing crimes again. But owning a handgun does not equal convicted sex offender, yet the treatment is the same.



            Because I drew a parallel, once, you now think that I am confessing to being a pedophile? That's willfully ignorant as hell.



            I know none of you hardly believe it, but I am just about as regular of a guy as anyone of you on here. Because I believe in liberty and freedom for everyone, I now am called a freak and a loner.

                • Get help, man. No one needs to live like that these days. There is help and the stigma surrounding mental illness isn't what it used to be. Just don't go on living with so much anger and hatred in your heart. It will consume you.

                      See man, no one knows I have my stuff unless they shoot with me. This information guarantees I'm not likely to have a home invasion but it does increase the risk of someone trying to bust my safe while I'm gone. It's also why I don't post on facebook even when I'm out of town. Those kinds of things can only bring trouble. While I understand why you'd want to know I'm not sure what difference it could make to you. That and it would make you a prime target when you didn't have that little red ball next to your address.




                      Nope, you are paranoid. Apparently you being smart about all those things listed above, especially facebook, you are paranoid. A freak. Someone who is going to murder black babies and can't wait to do it!

                        Bill, they compiled it for a specific purpose. This information was likely never intended to be made public in the first place. The FOIA was probably passed AFTER this gun registration program was enacted.

                            Do you have a problem with how the general population views handgun owners? It's really only as vilified as people take it. Most people view sex offenders in a negative light. Do you feel most of the people in the us look down on you for owning a handgun?



                            I see it as informational and not a topic to pass judgment on someone. Really, it's hardly even informational so as Billy said I think it's kind of dumb to publish. Not because it's good or bad. Just a waste of time like it was a slow news day type of thing.
