A Guy Now On CNN Just Criticized The NY Newspaper That Published Names/Addresses Of Gun Owners By... [View all]

saying in response to the anchor - when she said that "this is public info and anyone can get the info if they go through the trouble and the paper just made it easier" he said something to the effect that "our forefathers didn't anticipate google earth to make it easier".

I understand his argument on the addresses and google earth - but on the other hand when our forefathers wrote the 2A - they didn't anticipate semi-automatic and automatic weapons and clips/magazines that hold multiple bullets.

So if I understand it right - gun owners can use the google earth argument/technology to defend not having their names and addresses published in a newspaper - but those people that are concerned with these highly powered weapons of destruction can't use the same argument when talking about not wanting these weapons/technology used.

What's wrong with this picture?
