It makes anyone else next door a target....... Perhaps there should be a law that each non gun owner has to place a sign . Maybe better, we pass a law for these gun owners with the dots to place these signs up at tax payers expence so you grabbers get to PAY.



Oh looky heya' I found one for you!


Why I even found one for me

Sure we are. Guys who carry don't want to be IDed. You don't want people at the mall to see your face (picture obtained from somewhere) "Hey...that guy's got a gun". Know what I mean?

It spoils the whole element of supprize. You also don't want your personal info published about your home and it's whereabouts....WITH it's contents.

If anything came up missing...I'd blame them in full.

for the people that own guns because you're afraid of crime, do you really live in that bad of a neighborhood? I see a lot of unfounded paranoia coming from that crowd.

Criminals looking to steal can travel you know. A well to do neighborhood is just as good a target as a poor neighborhood.

Do you remember the idiots that went on and on about the signs they wanted to put in their yards stating that the person next door doesn't own a gun.

Wonder how those idiots feel about this?

I hope that some of those people listed charge the newspaper for invasion of privacy. After all, the newspaper is a corporation. The relevant portion of the statute:

Article 5, Sec. 50. Right of privacy. A person, firm or corporation that uses for advertising purposes, or for the purposes of trade, the name, portrait or picture of any living person without having first obtained the written consent of such person, or if a minor of his or her parent or guardian, is guilty of a misdemeanor.


I consider this 'purpose of trade'. The paper is hoping to sell papers, or have people join the website. Of course, a NY judge may disagree.

It may be that when one registers their gun with the state, you sign something that waives your right to privacy. If so, that needs to change.
But isn't this public record?
They print photos of alleged criminals without their consent, and that would also be an invasion of privacy by your definition.

Also, that's all public information. It'd be better off it that kind of information wasn't.



The 2nd amendment is actually the only amendment the ACLU doesn't aggressively pursue or fight. They don't pick and choose in general--with the exception of gun-rights. But they've defended aggressively for religious liberties and privacy rights. Don't write them off so easily.



Fox News respects privacy? The same company whose sister in the UK tapped hundreds of phones for illicit stories? That Murdoch et al knew nothing about?

By the way, those of you who don't think is right--they do the same thing to released sex-offenders--sometimes for life. You might see that as "necessary" for public safety. The same argument could be made of gun-owners.
Gun owners didnt break any laws, quite a big difference in sex offenders.
