Here is ze list list

What exactly does a gun offender list do?
Optimally, he said, the registry would change the mind-set among some that gun crime is acceptable. “That’s the mentality,” Howard said. “It’s a lot of handgun violence out there. . . . If we could drive those numbers down, that would be a win-win for the community.”

Shouldn't the punishment for the original crime be the deterrent? The gun is just the tool. Of course evil profiling will rear its head too. Plus, apparently non gun crime is cool with them and not deserving of a public warning.

TL;DR version: if you can't trust someone in society, do not keep releasing them.
