    But again, while I detest this article, these inmates could easily look up any of the guards addresses. Phone book, local records can often be looked up online. It is not like nobody could have known this information before and this article made unattainable info all of sudden become attainable.

    If any of these guards were home owners it was already a matter of public record.

    Not sure about where you live, but my uncle was telling me last night that he can have his address hidden from public record because of his profession. (he is a state cop/ bomb squad guy)

    Officers can request their name to be unlisted in the phone book. Once one of the suburb's phone books in this area published some unlisted officer's numbers here by accident and they ended up having to pay a settlement to the officer's involved for publishing their information. And regardless if some of the information COULD have been found, this still makes it much more easily available.

    I don't know. I live in PA, and I was wondering how I could find out how I could find out this info. Not that this is foolproof (by any means!!!) but my uncle and godfather was the warden at my states largest maximum security state prison that holds over 3,500 prisoners for something like 25 years, he retired last year. I would think that if he could, given what he did, he probably would have his address hidden (conjecture, for sure), so I entered it. It popped right up with his full name, age, white male etc and sale price, year of sale, square footage, and lovely pictures and aerial photography showing his inground pool etc on some random site called "sales spider" that I have never heard of. Soooo, not sure. I googled my info and it came right up on a site called spokeo (i'm also in PA). It wasn't necessarily all correct as far as current appraisal value or our income or whatnot, but the rest was spot on.

    So can anyone. And as to the bolded, I just disagree with you. Did you try to use the map? It wasn't easy to backtrack from a dot to a person. In fact, I'd like to see you try to do it. Way easier to google and address or a name. Like, 100 times easier.

    We are unlisted for our phone number, and everything is in my name anyways, to protect my husbands address. In some places officers dont even get mail to their own house, but are advised to get a PO Box. There are ways around things.

    But public records are still public records and this info is public.

    Again, I hated this article for its intent but while you can limit info if you're name is on the document it is possible for people to look this stuff up. Easily.

    As an aside, I would be interested to see a map with gun ownership that did not have personal names and addresses attached to it. Just because I am curious what parts of the country have the most and such.
