Blogger Christopher Fountain Hits Back Against Gun Owners' Map, Publishes Addresses Of Journal News Staff

“Seeing where all the guns are makes about as much sense as seeing which ones of your neighbors is taking anti-depressants, which neighbors are smoking pot and which neighbors are swingers or look at porn. Do you really think your well-educated, professional neighbor who likes to go target shooting once in awhile and is otherwise a great dad, a nice neighbor and a good friend is going to go out and shoot up a school? Or that you even need to be afraid of the fact that he/she owns a gun (which is probably in a gun safe most of the time anyway)? Really? Seriously? I'd like to see the map of all my neighbors who drink too much wine every night too while we're at it.”

“Law-abiding citizens who get gun permits are not the ones slaughtering kids in grade schools. Criminals are the ones doing it. Criminals who steal guns. And now they have a map showing all the households that have them to make their crimes just a little easier for them. Oh yay. Looks like printing all those names and addresses really will make a big difference to stop another senseless serial killer succeed in his plans for slaughter (sarcasm ...)”

“Yearly criminals steal how many of their guns from houses where they are left out in the open instead of locked away from easy access.”

“your wasting your breath, to the anti gun crowd when a law is passed fairy dust sprinkles all over the nation and the all problems magically go away.”

“The Sandy Hook school shooter just took his guns out of his law-abiding home.”

“I think the issue for many is not what they're labeled but the invasion of privacy. Some of the people on the list no doubt had unlisted contact information for a reason - domestic violence victims hiding from a violent stalker (as mentioned in the article) law-enforcement officer either active or retired who keep their home addresses private to reduce risk of retribution from criminals, judges and lawyers - for the same reason. There are many reasons why it is dangerous for some people to have their name and home address advertised like that. It's not the fact that they own a gun so much as an extreme invasion of privacy. Well, that and now criminals have an easy map if they want to target households in hopes of stealing firearms.”

“But again I ask you, why should gun owners have special rights to have THEIR public information protected?  No formerly battered woman ever had to file for bankruptcy and consequently had her name and address on a public court document, easily searchable in a database?  No law enforcement official ever lost a home to foreclosure and consequently had his address and name published in the paper in a foreclosure sale?  Why is it that gun permits need some sort of special privacy protection when stalkers and revenge seekers could, without much trouble, get their hands on DMV registration records, foreclosure records and bankruptcy records as well?”

“You have a very good point. The woman who wrote this article is obviously taking great pains to protect everyone including her son from himself. Adam Lanza had access to a lot of weapons and his own aunt said to the media that the mother was not aware anything was wrong.”

“Amen. I had the same experience. I met a famous super model a few years ago and she was very sweet and we had a wonderful discussion about parenting. During my afternoon hanging out with her I learned that she had many, close female friends and a full, happy family and community life. As a woman I was not threatened by her looks and she was not threatened by mine. If even a supermodel and can make female friends, I would think an average looking woman like Samantha Brick could have that too if she'd work a little bit on her personality and relationship skills.”

“I definitely agree with you that sexual harassment is very real. And although it is about power and control (not attraction) so it can happen to any women, I myself have seen this particular form of violence against women show up more so with the stereotypical "attractive" woman (or what the media pushes as attractive). That said, I think the problem with Ms. Brick's original "I'm Too Pretty" article was that she perpetuates a misogynist attitude by putting so much blame on other women for her own personal relationship issues by demeaning the entire female gender to petty, insecure, catty children who are ruled by jealousy and competition. In my opinion that just continues the misogynist attitude that women have been fighting against for centuries in Western culture and it makes me sad to see one of our own throwing the rest of us to the lions.”

“In a letter that Samantha Brick penned in response to the backlash and was printed in the Daily Mail, she says that all the hatred toward her is because she admits she is pretty. Actually, the hatred does not come from her "good self-image" but from her bashing all other women. I am inspired by women who know the look great and I want to feel that way about myself and try hard to. I am NOT inspired by women who bash other women and assume that all of us in the female gender are petty, jealous, insecure little beings all groveling with a mixture of awe and jealousy at Samantha Brick's feet. Here is my response to her nasty attitude about her own gender: http://urbancowgrrl.blogspot.com/2012/04/why-its-hard-to-be-beautiful.html
