Oh, yeah, that's an old staple of the anti mindset that's been exposed over and over again (like that story about rabid anti-gun Dianne Feinstein carrying a .38 in her purse illegally and doing her best to obtain US Marshall creds to carry everywhere).
I just got around to read an LA Times editorial from this past Sunday on the matter. Don't do this, kids, it's bad for your blood pressure and sanity. Their take, OF COURSE, is that what Worley did nothing wrong because it's public records, that actually criminals have been shown to avoid armed households, and that the right of parents to know where guns are for the safety of their children
outweighs the gun owners' right to privacy. They concluded with one of the scariest things I've ever read in their nutty rag: Younger people seem to mind all of this less than older people, so maybe the problem will solve itself by creating a society in which privacy is much less treasured than it once was.
So the 'solution' to the 'problem' that gun owners present is to wait until they die off and program the young into loving being turned into sheep. Thanks to the social media and corporations like Apple and Google, what we will soon turn into, apparently and not surprisingly a liberal dream, is a society similar to that of insects (think ants or bees) in which individuality and initiative will mean nothing and where the drones will be at the unquestioning service of a governing elite.
I've been seeing this coming for a looong time and deeply resent the way information technology is slowly being used to turn us into 'naked' clones with no privacy, and also the way younger generations embrace the process.
If someone published lists of homosexuals, or liberals, or blacks so that people could avoid sending their kids to play nearby the outrage would be deafening. There's public records about that too, though. That Worley list is like a scarlet letter or yellow jewish star. It's only palatable to the Times, and they dismiss the risks so easily, because they want to slap it on a portion of the population that they feel needs to disappear. The 'younger people' they talk about have been endoctrinated by the education system, the media and the entertainment business and reprogrammed into being fearful of guns and individuality for over four decades now.
