Firstly, this information was not public, it was obtained through a FOIA, that means they had to go to court in order to obtain it. Secondly, this is
EXACTLY what criminals want, now they know exactly which houses to hit when they are looking for new guns to steal. This is pretty much giving the
bad guys a list of free gun cache's to steal from whenever they wish. All they have to do is come to the door posing as a vacation sale's man, and
ask the people "if they plan on going on vacation any time soon" (from Home Alone I believe). There is also plenty of other ways to determine when
the inhabitants will be out, and the weaponry can be stolen.
Lastly, sure the abusive ex husbands might find the houses anyways, but this is going to make their job a hell of a-lot easier, now these women need
to go through all the trouble of finding a new residence. Which in this day, and age, is not easy. Will these newspaper staff be liable if this
misuses of information results in theft, abuse, murder? Who will hold them accountable for their actions, if not the people themselves?
