11. Extreme open carry.
Edited on Sun Jun-13-10 09:09 PM by safeinOhio
Seems everyone would want to be on this list. The crooks would be afraid to break in an armed home. One does not have to own a gun to have a CCW. I've seen people take the course with a rented gun. Like wise, there is no guarantee that some one on the Brady list does not own a gun. There is no serious potential. Most break-in artist do little to no background checks. That is most, not all. 99% of criminals are not criminals because of their high intellectual status. Just visit your local jail and you'll find this out.
Then there are the presses rights according to the First Amendment. That would make public records fair game.
I've seen a case where a criminal gang broke into expensive home in the country that had fake deer targets in the yard because they figured they had guns and bows. That is easy. Cross checking data bases is time consuming and would be unlikely.
Looking for a NRA bumper sticker on the truck would be so much easier. Then you'd have to figure out weather a gun in the home is an invitation to a crime, or a deterrence. That'd be a toss up.
