Newspaper wrong to print addresses of gun owners

I read with interest the Baltimore Sun article about the New York-based Journal News publishing an on-line interactive map detailing the names and addresses of licensed gun owners in two New York counties, with a third county — Putnam County — balking at a freedom of information request to release that information with respect to its residents ("Gun owners, paper battle over right to bare names," Jan. 4).

What a great idea! Let the criminals know exactly where all the privately owned guns are located so that they know just where to go to steal them. Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant! The intelligence level and down-to-earth common sense continually exhibited by liberals never ceases to amaze me.
