Naming gun owners

January 9, 2013

I just read an interesting comment. If the Journal News was really concerned about posting information for public safety, why didn't they post a list of people arrested for gun crimes. Wouldn't people want to know about individuals who have been charged with gun crimes that live in their neighborhood rather than their peaceful neighbor who possesses a legally obtained permit? To enhance their reporting, they could also report if those individuals (arrested for gun crimes) possessed hand gun permits and whether the guns were legal. This information could then support or refute the newspaper’s inference that legally owned guns are a threat to neighbors.
