but never publishes the names and locations of sex offenders or other criminal elements that the public SHOULD be told about. Good grief.
Where would you draw the line? Which crimes?....When would you publish the names...When they are convicted?...Every 6 months after a conviction?
Being a gun owner isn't a crime....unless it's not registered/illegal, or you use it to commit a crime?
Some gun owners don't want others to know, and some post
THIS PROPERTY PROTECTED BY SMITH AND WESSON on their lawn.
So where does the "logic" of, if the criminals know where there are guns,...they know where to look for guns, work?
Perhaps they are preventing a robbery by posting the gun owners address.

>>>Perhaps they are preventing a robbery by posting the gun owners address.>>>
Perhaps they have actually red-flagged all those addresses that DON'T have guns registered so they can ALL be targeted for robberies.......
As for published crimes.....our local town publishes all crimes, including DUI or drunk in public or using foul language in public, and their punishments after appearances in court here. I guess they figure that if the community knows who you are and what you did, your embarrassment will stop you from repeating the offense.
