My thought is, and maybe a police officer here could also state his/her opinion about this, that if I was a police officer and I would be sent to a case of domestic violance, I would be happy to have any information I could get my hands on, if the information can save my life.
I also know, that in the past, no matter what country, information out of government databases have gone lost and ended up in the wrong hands, likne in great britain a cd containing all the social security details, etc.
But, if it was possible to prevent something like that happening, would it be o.k. or not for you guys?
Great premise, but what about in the real world?
Say a LEO has checked and found no firearms registered to the house in questioned?
Nice info if you want to assure one's self that you won't be shot to death by a registered firearm from this location. FALSE SECURTY
Did he check the neighbors? What if the next door guy is sitting in the suspectís living room showing off his gun/ammo collection while sharing a 12 pack?
Ineffective for the first responder, valuable to the anti-gun politician.
Iíll pass; I gave, and am still giving my share to my country.
Uncle Sam, donít press your luck!
At this point, I'm still a grateful veteran, stop doing things to change my mind.
