You big brother lovers know no end. Putting your faith in a corrupted entity and exposing your own neighbors to prove a political point.

Im sure people who break into homes to steal guns are happy as hell though. Or those that just thought about maybe robbing someone. Nice to know if the guy with the nice house down the street has a gun or not.

And before you say that theft is not a problem, its a huge freakin problem ok? If you live in Memphis you would know. If you live in a suburb maybe not.

Well you can be sure of one thing - those homes that don't have firearms will definitely be buying them now. So, thank you very much. The manufacturers thank you, the NRA thanks you, the lobbyists thank you, and the politicians who accept both campaign contributions and our tax dollars thank you.

All of those police officers whose addresses are now available to every non-licensed gun-owning individual will probably NOT thank you.

People today are so childish; we have an entire country of adults possessed of a sub-par, juvenile mentality.

You can be sure the perps won't be going to rob the houses that are armed - and should a neighbour not like the fact that a person lives next to them who is armed - let them deal with it without their neighbors suppport.

You can also be sure local authorities are all over that guy right now, too. No doubt there are police and politicians on that list.

I think we have to see what has happened here, and in every other instance where the media puts a story out.

We are willing to draw lines in the sand, and literally start publishing our neighbors personal information all in the name of something that isnt related to peoples personal information at all.

Want better gun regulations? Great. Go for it. But to see that normal people can start putting their own neighbors under the bus in the name of something that quite frankly, Congress could give two fucks about, is very telling of the media's ability to create and control reactions.

Im not attacking you specifically, but people have got to remove themselves from situations and think rationally. And the media doesnt usually like rational responses.

But you certainly showed you thought it was funny that people had their personal information published in the newspaper? Im not attacking I just hate to see the media get people to literally start grouping normal people with an image that they have created.
