Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Something to consider re: the published list of gun owners. [View all]

Some women buy and register guns because they are being stalked or threatened.

Publishing their names and addresses makes them easy to find if they are hiding from an abusive husband or boyfriend, or if they are being stalked.

This is not just about "gun people."

Josh Marshall: "A few readers have noted that one reason people register fire arms is because they’ve been stalked or have survived some sort of abuse. Publicizing their names and addresses enables the abusers. This seems like a more serious concern."
