What if someone posted the names and addresses of Brady Campaign members? [View all]

The linked thread got me thinking of that very thing:

Newspaper Publishes Gun Owners’ Names and Addresses

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/headlines/2012/12/newspaper-publishes-gun-owners-names-and-addresses/

Lots of replies saying it was a great thing, "sunlight is the best disinfectant", etc.

Then I remembered that the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence will happily sell you
a list of its members/donors

Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence - Donors/Members Mailing List

Founded in 1974 (Formerly known as Handgun Control) this public citizens lobby works for legislative controls and governmental regulations on the manufacture, importation, sale, transfer, and civilian possesion of guns. Activists are individuals who have responded by mail on a gun control issue.


Of course, you might not have suspected this was available if you had read the BC's posted privacy policy:

Email List Subscription

When subscribing to this and future email lists, the Brady Campaign or Brady Center will collect and store the personal information that you provide. However, the Brady Campaign and the Brady Center will not sell your name or e-mail address to spammers or share it with unaffiliated groups.


I'm thinking that to purchase that list and update it would run around $10K, given that a
prospective purchaser would have to doublecheck the list and purge incorrect entries.
If I had the money to do so, I'd be mighty tempted to do just that-sauce for goose, gander, etc...

Let's see how many here are as dismissive of the privacy of the people they agree
with v. that of people they don't like
