The publication of the names of all licensed gun owners in New York City by the Gawker website may have angered civil libertarians and gun rights advocates, but it did garner a note of praise from one reader.
While your regret that you could not also publish the addresses is one I share, having access to the names is still an important step forward in reducing the risk to those in my profession, the unsigned letter stated. Breaking into homes and reallocating the excess wealth of the residents is how I put food on the table for my family. Getting shot by a homeowner is a risk Id rather avoid. Doing a little advance research with the names youve provided will help me lower the risk of making my children orphans.
You should be proud of what you have done to advance the cause of eliminating guns from our society, the letter continued. I fully support your broader effort to disarm those who would use firearms to injure or kill another person. If we can achieve this objective I, for one, will breathe easier.
