Listing names of gun owners vs journalists & why it matters [View all]

Many gun owners take offense when they are outed as gun owners..and they are armed. Many (most?) have a confrontational attitude that being armed bolsters.

Journalists, by nature, may be less confrontational, since they use words..not guns.
(some may actually have guns, but do not tend to flaunt it)

When a gun-person gets pissed off, their paranoid side could easily tempt them to ACT..and having the address & google map of someone they perceive to have "harmed" them, could escalate into a violent situation for their target ---the journalist who may have not even been involved in the decision to publish the "gun-list", but who now will have to deal with a possibly dangerous situation.

Does anyone see even a remotely equivalent possibility of journalists roving the neighborhoods looking for gun people who named them publicly?

How would such confrontations look? Journalist standing in the yard yelling headlines at them? vs someone driving around taking potshots or threatening to?
