Jessup will not acknowledge inconvenient truths.
In the same time frame, the rate of gun ownership has declined. I'm not saying that there's a relationship between gun ownership and crime. Just pointing stating the facts.
Newspaper sparks outrage for publishing names, addresses of gun owners
The names and addresses of the two counties' permit-holding residents were obtained through the Freedom of Information Act. The website notes that the map does not indicate whether the residents own handguns, only that they are legally able to, and that the data do not pertain to rifles or shotguns -- which can be bought without a permit.
I don't know why the newspaper did what they did but very little personal information is private nowadays.
With so much data-mining on the internet and everyone having GPS-enabled Smartphones or other mobile devices today, anyone can spy on anyone
It was the second time that this newspaper has released similar information.
I would like to see them do the same with welfare recipients.
