    ... generated by the publication of the permit owners names is telling.  They want to remain anonymous because... they're afraid people with guns will come to their houses?  Or something?

      Or know where to steal guns from without having to break into so many houses. I think that may be a more serious consideration.

        I don't want folks breaking into my house looking for nonexistant guns.

        Better not to store guns in civilian residential areas where innocient unarmed families live.

        I would prefer that people not store guns in secret anywhere close to my house. It makes me feel like I'm being used as a human shield.

          how about if they get a gun from an easily identifiable source and then do a home invasion on you.

          It could happen  (to quote a friend of mine from way back who usually said it in a joking way).

          Not too likely I suppose.

          I wasn't being too serious with my original comment either actually. Sometimes I forget to leave clues.

          and your name was NOT on the list, the bad guys would all now know your home is unprotected.  Will the rates of burglary (of things other than guns) and other crimes (rape, child abduction) now increase in homes so identified?  We'll know soon enough.  I'm personally betting the bad guys will do everything they can think of to take advantage of the knowledge they've been given on a silver platter by the unthinking (a nice word for "idiotic") media.  If that happens, will the victims sue the newspaper?  Or will they stand on principle that it was the right thing for the paper to have done.

      of the names of doctors who perform abortions?  Would that be OK, too?
