Another Argument Against Gun Registration

Last week, the California Department of Justice (DOJ) Privacy Office began mailing letters like this one to certified Firearm Safety Instructors.  The letter states that on October 14, 2016, DOJ inadvertently disclosed the name, date of birth, and California Driver’s License and/or Identification Card numbers of potentially every single DOJ certified Firearm Safety Instructor in California to an unknown requestor.  DOJ allegedly discovered the breach on October 27—well over two months ago—but is just now notifying individuals. 
With that information, how long to find someone's address?  Breaking into an instructor's house to steal guns is the ultimate organized crime supermarket.  I'm guessing probably dozens of handguns in an instructor's home.

  1. And the fact that it took the Cal DOJ SIXTY-SEVEN DAYS to begin to mail out the letters is such a delay as to put the DOJ in the position of co-conspirator. In those sixty-seven days any number of instructors' houses could be burglarized for guns, and with the burglars knowing that there was gold to be had, they could be organized, focused and prepared, so any sort of anti-burglary system, or safe could be overcome.

    And if there is a "safe" storage law, add to this the circular reasoning of the anti-gunners: the fact that someone was able to overcome the safe storage of the guns was proof of inadequate storage, and thus a violation of safe storage requirements. A dystopian criminal twofer. Many more guns in the hands of the criminals, and punishment of the very people most likely to be able to train the most people to resist criminals.

    The long delay between awareness of the data breach (what a minor-sounding event) and the notification of the people most affected to be on guard is so long that the delay cannot be innocent. "oops! Too bad! Well, guns among the hoi polloi are just too dangerous and a determined criminal can get them even if the citizen makes every effort to make them safe, so they should be stored/possessed only by the government in a central storage area.
