If this has been posted elsewhere, please disregard.

Journal News has published (http://www.lohud.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2012312230056&nclick_check=1) full names and full addresses of handgun permit holders in two counties in New York. They obtained this information under the Freedom of Information Act, claiming it is public information, however I'm pretty sure it violates the Privacy of Information Act.

Anyway California requires firearms permits and this could easily be any one of us, being blackmailed, black listed and open for intimidation and harassment.

NEWSPAPERS and NEWS ORGANIZATIONS are 'corporate celebrities'. ABC/CBS/NBC/CNN broadcasts something supporting an anti-gun bill; New York Times, Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle writes an anti-gun editorial; all "dog bites man". Some newspaper does something stupid/appalling. Again, while influential in forming public opinion, cannot introduce bills or write regulations, make arrests or decide court cases. Threads about their nattering go to OT.
