    “That was the most asinine article I’ve ever seen,” said Walter T. Shaw, 65, a former burglar and jewel thief who the FBI blames for more than 3,000 break-ins that netted some $70 million in the 1960s and 1970s. “Having a list of who has a gun is like gold – why rob that house when you can hit the one next door, where there are no guns?
    “What they did was insanity,” added Shaw, author of “License to Steal,” a book about his criminal career.

    Would someone please explain to me how it's in the public's interest to publish addresses of private individuals?

    all of them. no state is allowed to have such a law. no state is allowed to make laws that supplant the jurisdiction of the federal govt. The first amendment of the bill of rights makes that a federal statute so no state is allowed to overload (sorry I don't know the non-geek term for this off the top of my head) it in any way.

    its not. that's not the justification even if the weenie author says it is. the justification is that the information is by law a matter of public record, therefore the public is permitted to know it and disseminate it.

    Heard of "public" records? The public part must really confuse you.

    Imagine if a right wing paper or religious blog published the list of all women who had had abortions in the last decade. Or if they posted a list of gays and lesbians and encouraged their readership to harass them. Or if they posted the home addresses of abortion doctors and LGBT groups with the intention of having their viewers harass them. The uproar would be insane.

    The hypocrisy of liberals knows no bounds. There is nothing wrong with owning a gun. There is nothing wrong with getting an abortion. One is a hobby or a tool for self defense. The other is a medical procedure. Both should be private and no one's business. But liberals only have it one way. Their way.

    Funny how liberals whine like pansy fucking faggots when people harass law abiding abortion clinics or people out closeted gays. But out private gun owners? Harass them by publicizing their names and addresses? That's completely acceptable. There needs to be a Roe v Wade equivalent for gun rights in this country. Enough with state's rights raping the rights of the nation. Enough with state's rights overriding constitutional rights.

    Gawker is literally as lunatic fringe as the God Hates Fags groups. Harassing people that they disagree with ideologically. Using anything to get publicity and page views and attention. It's a joke. Protesting the funerals of dead children and dead soldiers is literally as worthless to society as trying to shame law abiding gun owners.

    Fuck Gawker. I just blacklisted the site from both of my businesses so employees can't read of their associated blogs.
