Well, that's one way to ensure that you get your gun permit taken away.

I thought it funny when someone questioned why the paper wasn't publishing the home addresses of the armed guards it hired.
 
2013-01-03 01:10:00 PM
In Florida, it would be much easier to list those who DO NOT HAVE guns. All 5 of them.

A 3-day waiting period and background check before buying flour is obviously needed.

Where's the problem? As we all know, every dangerous wackadoo specifically targets places with GUN FREE ZONE signs displayed. Surely advertising the fact that you're armed will act as a deterrent to the same wackadoos.

FTA: While 37.5 per cent of the homicides involved guns, 25 per cent were a result of blunt force trauma and 12.5 per cent were drownings

I find this...odd. Is drowning a popular murderkilldie method in Canada? Are the mounties on the look out for men walking aboot with large tubs of water? Just odd.

Didn't get the joke, did you?

This story has been done to death - the newspaper is clearly grasping here and nothing good will come of what they published. They did it purely to demonize law-abiding citizens. It will only lead to people NOT registering their handguns. Who wants their info published in the paper (even if it is publicly available)?

Also, there is a good chance that some people on "Ze List" have valid threats against their lives, or have occupations where they need a permit (security guards for example...).
 
2013-01-03 01:16:35 PM
All they did was publish the adresses of non gun owners.. Dear mr criminal, go nuts.

Yes, and? The proper response to that is an invasion of privacy suit, not an act of domestic terrorism.

Canada has a lot of ice. Smashing a block of ice over a person's head and allowing it to melt and fill the victim's lungs is a popular method of homicide.

I mean, I never go to the sports tab, I never go to the business tab, I rarely go to the politics tab....

I think a Guns or Gun Violence tab would be extremely popular on this website.

So is this the part where Americans turn on their neighbors and offer them up for victimization to gun violence without a second thought?

You're drunk driving a boat, one of your passengers falls out of the boat and drowns, it's a homicide.

Two things:
1) Ban mailing and shipping, or at the very least put some common sense controls in like waiting periods, background checks, and registrations.
2) I bet the attention whore newspaper staff mailed it themselves. Gotta keep the outrage rolling.

Preliminary tests determined that the substance was nontoxic, Chong said.

But it could have been. The only way we'll be safe is if we're all carrying biological and/or chemical weapons.

Perhaps someone wanted the journalists to be able to make some delicious, yummy cake.

Thugs who want to steal a weapon to use in further criminal activities? Not so much.

Hey sweet cheeks, why do we just ASSUME it's some evil gun owner who sent this envelope to the paper?

The profession of "journalist" is full of vapid, self centered attention whores, sugar.

Newspaper publishes controversial story, hires armed guards & gets a lot of "blow back" for it.

Someone associated with said newspaper sends an "envelope full of domestic terrorism" as you called it, sweetie pie. Of course it turns out to be harmless.

Newspaper people now look like the victims of a bunch of crazed gun yahoos and become what they like to be the best. The center of the story.

I'm gonna say that's more likely than some cross eyed gun yahoo doing it....
