Outrage Over New York Newspaper Publishing Gun Owners' Addresses

I support the NRA and oppose bans. I think that since the gun owners' addresses are published, it would infer to the bad guys that anyone whose address isn't there doesn't have a gun, and therefore puts a target on their backs. Even if they know the addresses of gun owners, they're running a lot greater risk by going after their belongings than they are by going after someone who's not a gun owner.

The Journal News published gun owners' home addresses in Westchester, Rockland and Putnam counties.

The map sparked more than 500 comments from readers within a day of its appearance on the website, many of them voicing outrage at the paper’s decision to make the information public.
