Please tell me this is not the case!
Tennessee county and up come flags with the addresses of those who have a CCW. mod edit - Incorrect, the information is a composite of census data for the census tract and the population and number of TN HCP holders. There are no names or addresses or any specific information to any individual.
Do I need to repeat myself.
Do you get it?
Are you internet savy enough to figure it out?
mod edit - non THR rudeness and name calling removed
slightly disturbed, yet understanding. it was a socialogical experiment, that resulted in data that could be used for or against gun owners.
One of who's members?
It is rude and inappropriate to abuse Jerry.
one of our members stated in the blog that Oleg was directly responsible for this...
Well, there it is.
The poster on that other blog, "Joe Milkor," stated:
I saw no supporting evidence, and thus refuse to condemn anyone...
the map should be taken down. the tables and artical may remain.
That's all I saw. A census map.
There is a statement that CCW permits are public record.
Am I missing something?
Or am I just not internet savvy enough to figure it out?
I would agree, though, that names and addresses should not be posted in such a fashion. And I agree with the assessment that this was simply an amateurish attempt at a sociological study.
EDIT TO ADD:
this is an example of the information I got off the map;
As for addresses, I believe the info boxes on the map simply represent the geographic center of the individual areas of interest, not the address of permit holders. Maybe I'm still missing something...?
EDIT TO ADD (Again):
I'm also a cartography minor and would just like to say that most of the maps in that article are absolutely crap-tacular.
Frankly, sir, I feel you should have taken it up in private with Oleg. It's called verify.
BainX also stated:
Allow me to be the first to point the way to the door if you're unhappy at THR. This is Oleg's house. We don't call people stupid either. Read the rules. Take The High Road.
If you have a problem with Oleg why do you PM him instead of troll baiting your tinfoil hat drama all over his forum.
Are you internet savvy enough to figure it out or are you just stupid?
My god man what is your problem! You have a serious attitude issue going on here, calling people stupid and making accusations isn't very THR. If you have a problem take it up with that person and get your facts straight first.
Nuf said, done with this thread!
Bainx, I'm pretty sure Oleg is offline at the moment, equally sure he'll be along in awhile to answer your question.
Understandable that people whose addresses are in that database might be a tad unhappy* about it, but still no need to take it out on each other. Especially not on THR.
* "tad unhappy" = royally ticked off
Separate names with a comma.
