Ex-Burglars Say Newspaper’s Gun Map Would’ve Made the Job Easier, Safer. To criminals this list is ‘pure gold.’ To liberals it was a touchy-feely thing to publish it with obviously no critical thinking about what the implications of what they were doing were. Perhaps they should change the paper’s name to the Urinal News because they’re obviously a piss-poor, third-rate publication.

Are all those red dots gun owners? If so, I don’t want to hear any more shit about southerners being the bitter clinger gun owners~

The bitter clinger’s are a nationwide group, some are just more vocal than others since opening your mouth in Kalifornia can get you in trouble…the regime here thinks all guns are bad and now want to pass a “homeless bill of rights” so the dope addicts, whores, and alcoholics have more rights than gun owners…..This place is sooooooo screwed up.

I disagree with the headline assessment that this was a “touchy-feely thing to publish it”, on the contrary, I think it was an aggressive and hostile shot across the bows of lawful firearms owners, and notice that they are under assault. I think it was done with the full knowledge that this could make them targets, not of garden-variety burglars, who would indeed be deterred, but of crackpot activists who would find a number of different ways to harass them, staying -mostly- just within the law, a` la the Fleabagger Occupation: up to and including provoking someone to actually fire a shot.

Yes, I think this is exactly what they intended, really.

Totally agree with you and don’t forget the added benefit of telling the bad guys where the undefended homes are.

Does it not endanger childern too. the homes without guns should be more upset about this map than the ones with. This map says my family is yours to do with what u will for the 6mins it take for a cop to get here.

6 minutes–if you’re that lucky. Some areas it could be 60 minutes! But I get the point and wholeheartedly agree with you.

When I lived in Joshua Tree, CA, about a mile and a half from the State Highway, I called the Sheriff, then listened to the police scanner for a while. A deputy was at the 7-11 a half a mile east on the highway, and when he was dispatched, he asked another deputy for the best way to get to my address. When I heard the directions given, I called back to dispatch, saying that if the deputy went that way, I would have to take a 4×4 over and rescue him out of the sandwash. It took about 45 minutes for him to find my house. I’m glad it wasn’t an emergency.

Well, a journ0list would say they’re not “killers and theives”, they’re victims of the system who are seeking social justice outside of approved channels. That is, until the journ0lists homes are robbed, then the perpetrators are Rush Limbaugh listeners who are mad because an awesome black man is president.

Journ0lism means never having to say “I’m wrong!”

Megan Kelly stated that I forget where but there was something similar that happened in another state and she stated that MIT made a research study on it and found that the maps of the gun owners made it possible for burglars to visit the homes of those that DID NOT have guns that the numbers of burglary went up and they found that it was more on the houses that were pinpointed as not having a gun. So this actually happened and there are results of this but liberals don’t care. So my question is… the non gun owners are you going to sue the paper once your house and the house of other neighbors that don’t have guns get burglared while you realize that the homes of the gun owners got skipped over? What if it is something worst like your wife or child getting raped? Will you sue, file charges against them?

I dont understand how this is lawful for no reason to post this information so it is easily accessible to everyone…?

He says that those who need weapons know where to steal them? But he is assuming that the weapons will be freely available just by their entering into the home. If there are alarms, dogs and people (including other law abiding gun holders neighbors) in between him and that weapon I seriously doubt that a smart criminal would want to take that risk. It would be easier to go to the soft home, get the cash and jewelry and use that to buy an illegal weapon if they want it. So that in my opinion doesn’t fly. A responsible gun owner should immediately let the authorities know of the theft and make sure that gun is no longer under his or her name at least legally speaking so no one can sue no one else, and also gun owners should not let the weapons be so readily accessible either not just for any possiblility of theft but also for anyone else that may be in the house.

On Red Eye ealier this week, comedian Joe DeVito wanted them to publish a list of the homes with illegal firearms. I thought that was actually a good idea.

It is. However difficult because of course since it is illegal and the “owners” are probably in their majority criminals it will be difficult to assess who has them. However that would be TRUE journalistic work, going to the county office and requesting that information and putting it on the website is stupid and not true journalistic work. They were looking for someone to hurt for the deaths of 20 children and 6 adults at the hands of a lunatic. They looked at the wrong people.

And while we’re at it, how about we publish the addresses of illegal aliens?

I got no problem with this, however what will happen after that? ICE may not be legally able to go there and get them. :-/

I’m assuming the majority of those unarmed in the area are Democrats. So screw them. If you’re a liberal idiot or don’t pay attention to what’s happening to our country, you get what you deserve.

Of course it will be easier when the criminals know who can’t shoot them.

Yet another example of liberalism generating the exact opposite of it’s stated intent.

“911 Operator: “Are your doors locked?”
McKinley: “Yes, I’ve got two guns in my hand. Is it ok to shoot him if he comes in this door?”
911 Operator: “I can’t tell you that you can do that, but you do what you have to do to protect your baby.”

The 24-year-old intruder was shot dead the second he stepped through the door.”

That last one still warms my heart, even tho the leftards call us heartless.

PS, seen any good shows lately? Miss you scoping the scene since I can’t. Screw ’em if they don’t like your commentary on the ♪ ♫ mixed w\ the serious stuff.
