  • Watch two years pass without a single incident, and yet they'll still be convinced that the Big Bad Gun Guy will kick in the door at any moment, an AR-15 in one hand and an AK-47 in the other, and shoot the whole place up.
  • Ignoring the headline fail, it seems gun owners are really helping that whole image of them being tough guys who threaten everyone with their guns.
  • I came here to make fun of the headline, but now I'm thinking...

    Wouldn't armed private security employees by definition be private citizens from the surrounding community who have pistol permits? Did they think this whole thing through?
  • Gun owners are all peaceful and responsible, and they'll shoot you if you say otherwise.
  • I herd you like guards.
  • I don't worry I am armed, loaded, cocked and sighted in. I won't give you my guns, but I have some lead I'll send your way if you wish.
  • The paper did them a favor, now all the burglars will know not to pick their houses.
  • Hey subby, I heard you liked guards so we got a guard to protect your guard.

    I LOL'd.

    That explains why the police investigated both threats sent to the newspaper...oh wait, they determined there had been no threats.
  • Original headline: News: Print names and addresses of gun owners. Fark: Hire armed guards to protect your guard your newspaper office

    Just in case the admins decide to change it like they usually do, thus rendering the entire first half of a thread moot.
    Hopefully they change that policy this year. Minor things fine, but egregious errors, leave 'em.

  • Guard the guard? Is that like sacking those responsible for the sacking?
  • Once again, I'd like to point out that the local news from that area is often more interesting than the national stuff.

    Alternatively, stake the place out until they're sure that nobody's there, break in and try to get some free guns. Or, go to every other house on the list because they know that the occupants are unarmed. The latter would be a bit of schadenfreude, but the truth is that no matter how inappropriate their actions were I wouldn't wish ill on anybody in any incident that stems from their irresponsible reporting.

    Freedom of the press allows the press to report without fear of government censorship. That is not the same as making correct and proper editorial decisions. Should there be a crime as a result of their actions, the editors will be individually and collectively exempted from consequences, yet they will still be responsible. I hope, though I can't be certain, that they ponder that before they decide to do this the next time.
  • So yep, they changed it.
    I'd like to know if there is someone in charge of going back through and farking all the headlines after they are greenlit or what?

    Well, their penises would hardly suffice, would they?

    The newspaper folks never claimed they were threatened with guns or penises.  The cops didn't find any threats.
