I doubt it, but even if they did, I wonder how many bangers can read anyway.

So, the Counties have ready access to the DROS records.

Who else does?

Don't let them fool you! They are well educated, computer savey, professional criminials. They have family members and friends that work in state, county, city offices. AND THEY TALK! That letter with the OP's address on it is the same as a big sign on his lawn saying "I have guns, come get them". If a mail box had been ripped off, and that letter was in it, who has that info now? I think it is totally reckless that Los Angeles sent out this type of info.

I think this is quite possible.

I recall a story on the radio yesterday about a group of theives hitting houses where people suspended their subscriptions to the LA Times while they were out of town. They caught one of them with the suspend list on him.

Found an example article here: http://www.mercurynews.com/crime-cou...-times-readers

WTF????!!!!!!

I got as far as "you have recently purchased a firearm"... and my brain shorted out!

I need to read the rest - but this is a travesty!!!

Just the "Big Brother Watching" concept is HUGELY concerning to me... but also, what if it got sent to the wrong address, what if a snoop got your mail?... That's not much different from the names and addresses released in NY.

Things are really getting out of hand!

How recently did you buy your last gun? Was it a handgun, single, or multiple long gun?

What a huge waste of taxpayer money....an earlier poster nailed it...they are treating gun owners like cigarette smokers...which is laughable because cigarettes are bad but the stickiest of the icky is good...shamefull

I don't like it when (obviously) another Gubmint agency has access to your gun purchase history. And decides write me a letter. Dang...

Received my letter today. So let me get this straight, the Cal DOJ is knowingly sending information on firearms purchases to the LA City Attorney's Office?

I'd wipe my butt with it after a hearty Indian cuisine dinner and mail it back to them. But in some instances I have been accused of not having a whole lot of tact.

I like that idea. Seriously if 10 or more people did the same thing, it would be so awesome. It wouldn't change anything, but you know it would send a message. 1 person, not so much.

Here is the thing. Them sending a letter is difficult (for rational people) to take at face value as intimidating. It is just a letter educating the new gun owners that there are responsibilities and laws related to gun ownership. A letter with feces or bullet holes in it...now that (to rational thinking people) can easily be construed as intimidating.

Personally, I think it would be better if they sent that letter to every address in LA, not just new gun owners. The marketing effort is the root of what bothers people. The fact that the government dug up their name and address and sent them a letter represents the fact that they are no longer anonymous individuals floating through the masses. Yet we are the same people that actively participate on a public gun forum

I would call the person listed at the bottom and ask WTF. What's the deal with this campaign, if it is a campaign. I too would feel violated. As mentioned above as of gang bangers are also receiving these letters?

On a side not I received from Massachusetts asking for a DNA sample. Turns out it was meant for a person with the same name.

I've bought plenty of firearms in the last 6mo -

And didn't receive my "Welcome" letter.

I feel discriminated against for being an evil rich veteran christian married law abiding tax paying white guy...
