Response to slackmaster (Reply #24)

43. Not a rationalization at all

It is a thoughtful consideration of all aspects of the issue. So you can disagree all you want, but labeling it some sort of psychological pathology doesn't do squate--it's simply an ad hominem attack.

I happen to agree that there may be good cause for gun registrants to be known to the public. I'd like to know if my neighbor has some sort of weapon.

Those who advocate unlimited, or unrestricted gun ownership appear to view the use of them to kill needlessly, or accidentally as some sort of collateral damage. Well, then let the publication of their names and addresses be another part of the collateral damages.

As for the women hiding from an abusive spouse, ex-boyfriend, whatever, she can do more than simply buy a gun and move to a new address. Not only could but probably should, if he's that dangerous.
