    Anybody else notice there are no permit holders in Newtown?

    A few of our Virginia papers tried doing this with our Concealed Carry holders names. Fortunately our Governor removed the list from public view.

    No, they'll never bring up this story if those areas are burglarized more. The blame will be dumped on those who would dare consider their lives worth defending.
    I'd just about bet that they "sanitized" the list of anyone with political power or other influence who are their 'friends'.

    The commercial appeal in Memphis, TN has had a look up available for years. I wish the state would fix this.

    Time to email the link to my reps again and ask them to include language to fix this when they pass the law that lets teachers carry at school. :rolleyes:

    Its sad to think that this is only the beginning of the critisim of law abiding gun owners. I fear that we will get a much bigger lashing before it is all said and done. What ever happened to common sense?

    Dear Mr. News Paper Guy, thank you for letting me know what house not to break into.

    That map is a lot of crap. I know several people who hold permits and not 1 is on there.

    Dont think of it as a map for criminals to steal guns, hopefully those permit holders will defend their home accordingly, think of it as a map of homes not to rob, but all homes without a permit holder icon = more than likely unarmed homes that can easily be pillaged with little resistance.

    A fellow former officer had this reply after I told him about the map:

    "It's all right, you know when they'll get mine from me...
    Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!"

    Fortunately I live in FL now and this information is not available to the public for both LE or law abiding citizens.

    This seems like a huge breech of privacy. Just because the law requires govt and police know you have a gun, that doesn't mean everybody needs to. It sounds almost like the sex offenders list, but these gun owners haven't done anything illegal. I agree that if a criminal even looks on this list, he will avoid the one where he might get shot like the plague.

    How about the addresses of people who have certain medical procedures?

    How about:

    Income tax records

    Birth Certificates

    School Records

    Military Records

    Immigration Records
