    And so it begins............

    Any New Yorker interested in knowing if a neighbor has a pistol permit may check online at http://www.whospackingny.com/ a recently anonymously launched website.

    I down loaded the file and it contains 312,463 names and addresses. Some of these are said to be police officers and public officials.

    Full Story

    I'm not saying there should be capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?

    That's why we need constitutional carry in all our states.

    Interesting.

    The website doesn't come up for me. The story does and is interesting.

    The Brady's are desperate! LOL

    If I was a criminal I would cross reference the list and only break into homes that are unarmed.

    .
    Worse yet target the homes with know guns and wait until they have left for work.

    Publishing such data bases are irresponsible and should anything occur to the people on the list, the publisher of these should be held accountable.

    they say "the server company for www.whospackingny.com has told the association that it doesn't know who launched the website."Dont people have to register to put up web sites? Maybe that should be public information. Put his address up for criminals to see.

    There is a Diane L. Taylor on the old list. I'm wondering if the mayor's main squeeze is packing a pistol?

    These lists should be accessible by the public.

    Any business of the state should be fully available to anyone who wants to examine it, unless it involves state secrets.

    Interesting.

    Whois didn't yield any useful information but I did notice this at the bottom:

    Like this site?
    Donate to UNICEF. Because the world has bigger problems than yours.


    Meh, guess that doesn't really mean anything either...

    When they post personal addresses which can include domestic, assault and crime victims is a clear disregard to others safety.

    I tend to disagree. I don't think the general public can gain any useful information from knowing. What do people plan on doing with the info. It reminds me of in Idaho when the peoples names that drew wolf tags got published. The man that Harvested the first wolf got allot of grief from anti hunting orgs.

    Public oversight of our government is more important.

    I am attempting a public records request from the DOL for WA state CPL holders. I believe the law has a provision that will allow me. I will keep all updated with regard to the same.

    Pretty sure CPL holders are exempt from disclosure.

    Several years ago some moonbat here in Olympia tried to get the OPD and others to release the names of CPL holders because he argued it was in the interest of safety to know who is armed. The records were refused in the interest of the privacy of the CPL holders.

    How is it public oversight of the government to let John Doe, Public Citizen, have my address? Just curious as to your logic, not trying to be confrontational at all. I could understand if this was a "may issue" state, so you could show how it was only given out to "special people" but since this is a "shall issue" state, where just any citizen without a felony/domestic assault issue can get it....you should just assume everyone has one (or could get one)....

    Disclosure of CPL Information

    I received my public disclosure of Washington State CPL holders today. You may, or may not be pleased to note they did not release names of individuals or addresses as cited in the quoted RCW. The population data in my comparison is old but it is interesting to see. I thought the percentages would be higher.
