"It's a bad idea to keep secret who has loaded guns in our communities..." - Oregon State Senator Ginny Burdick, speaking about concealed carry confidentiality. In New York there were maps published showing the locations of the homes of concealed carry license holders. Subsequently crimes were committed against some of those people using the maps that identified their homes. Burdick supports this. She wants the Oregonian to be able to do the same thing. But when she announced at the very last minute that she would not be attending a scheduled town hall meeting, citing a scheduling conflict, she was video taped from across the street, relaxing at home throughout the scheduled meeting time, and would not answer her door. Upon being confronted with the video evidence of her lie, she now plays the victim and says she was afraid of encountering her opposition face to face at the meeting. Now she and her supporters at the Oregonian web site are saying her privacy was invaded by "pro-gun nutcases" who video taped her lounging at home while stiffing the numerous citizens of Oregon who wasted time and money to show up at the meeting, not knowing she wouldn't be there. She fails to see the irony and hypocrisy in all of this. I've come to the conclusion that she's just plain stupid.
