Life is about to change for people seeking to legally own guns

The NY Times reported In the days after the Connecticut school killings, a newspaper in nearby Westchester County, N.Y., decided to respond by publishing the names and addresses of handgun permit holders in its readership area. The newspaper, The Journal News, said that informing people about legal weapons in their neighborhoods was a public service.

Not everyone agrees.

The posting of the information online over the weekend has touched off an outcry across the country that has underscored the raw emotions surrounding the issue of guns. The interactive map put together by The Journal News, compiled from publicly available records, has already been shared tens of thousands of times on social media.

“Now everyone knows where the LEGAL GUNS are kept, a valuable piece of information for criminals,” wrote a Facebook user who gave his name as Mike Pandolfo. “Why don’t you do something helpful, like trying to find out where the ILLEGAL GUNS are kept?”

I guess personally I look at it like this, "If I were a criminal what houses would I target", I'm thinking they will be looking for house NOT on that list! I'm not sure if most criminals are that smart but I'm thinking the people that should be mad are the ones that just had posted that they are now a target.

On Jan.3rd Biden is to report to President Obama with his committees recommendations for gun control nationwide, about the same time Sen. Feinstein with be introduction new gun legislation that promises to be the most restrictive in history. I'm thinking after Barry gets sworn in for his new term that life is about to change for people seeking to legally own guns.
