  •  Why worry, they're "nuts" aren't they? (5+ / 0-)

    Nuts deserve no slack.

    Ok.....

    One consideration might be that publicizing the location of potential gun owners could cut down on the effort needed by those wishing to steal a gun to find one using what is after all publicly available information.

    Of course, that could lead to a lack of exercising of burglary research skills and ultimately that would be a good thing.

    Other than that, since it's public information anyway it's a moot point.

      ...the gun owners lock up their guns at home so they aren't available to burglars OR inquisitive six-year-old-kids.

        although some would think it'd make the neighborhood safer, would also mean they'd take their tax payments elsewhere.

        Just depends on the skill level and time available.

        6 year olds, different story of course.

        In those neighborhoods I kind of think gun safes would be frequently encountered, but don't know, of course.

        there's a substantial risk to that asshole and to the family.

        You're fine with creating that danger, because you think it might get someone to lock up a weapon?
