Westchester County Newspaper Publishes the Addresses of Gun Owners In the County

I used to be a doorman and to pass the time I would time I would listen to the radio. One of my favorite shows was the Savage Nation. Michael Savage is one of those bombastic, fiery, and somewhat partisan conservative radio hosts who's content and rhetoric one can easily argues borders on demagoguery. However, Savage would often say that "Liberalism is a mental disorder." I agree, any philosophy practiced in an extreme form is a mental disorder and blatant example of irresponsible yellow journalism is an example of that.

What was suppose to be the end result of publishing these people's personal information? Shaming law abiding gun owners (whose only wish is to be left alone,) into selling their guns? But it's our brothers in the National Rifle Association who are the zealots, nut jobs, and extremists. This 🤬 has a lot of unintended consequences to it, for example, you just gave information to a burglar which homes have guns in them. From the certain burglar's perspective he might be less inclined to break-in to the home with the strap. Or some 🤬 's that really about that life, might go into the home with the guns for the sole purpose of finding the heat. With the knowledge of knowing the guns are there, they'll just bring their own knowing that they might have to draw down on a 🤬 .

Also these 🤬 made anti-gun 🤬 inadvertently gave weight to the NRA's argument about gun registration. Who knows maybe these dumb 🤬 will keep 🤬 up and swing public opinion in favor law gun ownership. For those who agree with this 🤬 , please explain why this 🤬 is acceptable.

    Stopped reading right there.



    There's no purpose in publishing the names of gun owners. I'm not down with their privacy being invaded but listening to Savage is bad for your health...seriously. The whole "mental disorder" quip is actually taken from Liberals saying Conservatism is a mental disorder, there are actually people studying it....technically its right-wing authoritarian personalities, but what conservative isn't a right-wing authoritarian?

    You're not suppose to take Savage in a literal sense and understand when he's going into his shtick and is speaking in hyperbole.

    What liberal isn't a half-a-socialist, 🤬 made individual that believes in free enterprise and isn't a proponent of the government providing everything for you via high tax rates?

    public opinion is probably not as anti-gun as you think. there's a reason why people pushing anti-gun legislation are relying on polling taken as close to the Newtown shooting as possible.

    They're indirectly posting a list of houses without guns.

    I think that apparently some "pro-gun" bloggers have posted the names and addresses of all of the "anti-gun" people who posted the names and addresses of the gun owners. Difference is that these anti-gun people don't have guns to protect themselves if, say, a burglar decided to pay a visit. So what goes around comes around twice as hard?

    it's supposed to shame them (see also that one old lady who says it makes her feel like they're placing her on the same level as a sex offender). the sad part is listening to anti-gun people justify it: if it was something they agreed with, they'd be 🤬 off about the list, but right now it's a lot of "there's nothing to complain about because it's a matter of public record." sad.

    That's what grinds my gears "The unspoken lists". Basically very few of the makers realize the dual nature of a "list", or do they?
