Sure. Why not make all tax related info public. Census too.
When our kids were young and asked to play, or stay over at someone's house that I didn't know the parents...I most certainly wanted to know if they were a gun owner. Sometimes I asked the parents straight out if they had a gun, and whether the guns/ammo were locked up. Not all parents/adults are responsible....that's fact.
If I didn't get the right answer, my kids weren't allowed in that house. Could care less about anyone's hurt feelings, or being offended by my questions.
Such a list would be useful for parents of kids who are concerned about the incidence of accidental shootings, which is alarmingly high. I think EVERY parent has the right to know (as much as possible), about their kid's environment - whether that be at school, or at their friend's house.
I only got one, "it's none of my business" response. To which I said, if my son is staying in your house, it most definitely IS my business. Then I said if their son wanted to play at our house, it was OK, but my son won't be at their house.
But some may benefit from a list. Many parents don't like to be confrontational, by asking such questions. My wife is such a person.
demo, my house is where I have always wanted my kids and their friends to hang out - that way I knew what was going on. Boy can the friends mooch. lol
My children are my legacy.
I was wondering if the newspaper "sanitized" the list they published. You know, remove the politicians, judges, and connected individuals names who may not care to see that info piublic. After all, newspapers do reserve the right to edit and they did refuse to answer more questions about the article.
from the OP's link:
The reporter did not put out a map for the area where he lives, which according to the address that was posted as his is in Queens. I wonder if he would remove his own name from the list if, perhaps, he owned or had a permit for a Model 686 Smith & Wesson in .357 caliber handgun. Since I am not allowed to say for sure he has a permit for that because I can't provide a reputable link I can only question whether IF he had one would he remove his own name.The paper declined to answer further questions about the map.
