yes the right to information is democracy in action.

Pubishing an entire list of gun owners with addresses is irresponsible and dangerous.

Common sense ditates when does the benefits outway the dangers.

I do not see any benefits to publish this information.

However I do see many negative aspects.

This newspaper needs to asses the importance of their actions and their direct responsibilities for which they will be held responsible.

Isn't there an overwhelming lack of common sense already visible in people that hold responsible positions..
