Soledad O'Brien Clashes With Gun Advocate John Lott: 'Your Position Comp...

"...The common feature across such attacks, Lott said, is that, with few exceptions, they've occurred where guns have been banned. "But there's more than one thing in common, right?" O'Brien asked, adding that they're armed, often with semi-automatic weapons.

The point, Lott underlined, is that these "gun-free" pockets are the ones that are targeted. Specifically, he spoke about the gunman who chose the movie theater in Aurora, as opposed to other nearby theaters. O'Brien countered that Lott hasn't spoken to him and has no way of knowing the gunman's thought process. "How do you know that?" she asked. "You don't know that."

"Why is your takeaway from all of this to get rid of gun laws — and your takeaway is not to say, 'There are people who should not have access to certain types of weapons,'" O'Brien questioned.In this instance, she said, we know the gunman used a semi-automatic rifle to breaking into the building, rendering their security useless. "Why would you not say that's exactly the kind of weapon that someone should not be able to easily get their hands on?"...

[DISGUSTING MUST READ!] News Website Posts Maps Showing The Names And Addresses Of LEGAL Firearms Owners!

h/t  the Gateway Pundit

The website Lohud has posted maps that show the names and locations of legal gun owners. This is a disgusting breach of privacy. No reason for posting this is given, they website only says the following:
The map indicates the addresses of all pistol permit holders in Westchester and Rockland counties. Each dot represents an individual permit holder licensed to own a handgun — a pistol or revolver. The data does not include owners of long guns — rifles or shotguns — which can be purchased without a permit. Being included in this map does not mean the individual at a specific location owns a weapon, just that they are licensed to do so.

Data for all permit categories, unrestricted carry, premises, business, employment, target and hunting, is included, but permit information is not available on an individual basis.

To create the map, The Journal News submitted Freedom of Information requests for the names and addresses of all pistol permit holders in Westchester, Rockland and Putnam. By state law, the information is public record.

Putnam is still putting together its records and could not immediately provide any data. The map will be updated when that data is released.
Not only does this make legal gun owners targets for harassment but also puts their unarmed neighbors in danger. For a criminal not knowing which person has a weapon is a big part of the deterrent. I have contacted the website for comment, I will update this post when or if a response is received.

If I were to click on a dot on the map then a name and address pops up. I have not done so out of privacy concerns for the people impacted.

Govt. officials furious at "Zero Dark Thirty" implications

Despite the headline the CIA really does not dispute the key issues that they decry. They actually take issue with the scope of the efforts and the implications of the use of enhanced interrogation (although they acknowledged it could have been a factor). The fact that the main stream media is giving this so much play is a good sign that the movie is actually pretty good.
