A list of gun owners would be a gift for criminals

Will Connecticut pinpoint gun owners?

When I first heard about the plan by Connecticut Rep. Stephen Dargan to publicize a list of all 170,000 citizens with gun permits, I was outraged. Then, I laughed to myself.

If a lost like that were made public, wouldn’t it be a great tool for burglars? Even the dumbest crook is going to know enough to take the path of least resistance, which in this case, is a household which is unarmed. By publicizing such a list, he will be giving the safe signal to burglars all over Connecticut.

If you’re a gun control supporter in Connecticut, and you support this legislation, think about that for a moment. Gun owners will be on the permit list, and you’ll be on the break-in list.
