    Totally overlooked is that when gun permits are required, the owners have had a background check. So each dot represents a law-abiding citizen.

    Unlike the homes without a dot, which could represent a pedophile, rapist, meth lab, burglary ring, illegal alien gang, etc.

    Amazing slant in the media about Gun Owners.

    Wouldn't expect anything less from an anti-gun outfit like AOL. AOL and gun rights - use it and lose them...

    Don't sweat it. If you have pets indoors and your house front doesn't face west it is supposedly a 'lower home value' as well. Just depends...

    That's a very good idea... gun owners should try to get their property taxes reduced on the basis of gun ownership devaluing their home value.

    Does anyone think gov.org is going to give up that tax revenue? They'd be caught between a rock and a hard place debating over whether to denigrate gun owners at the expense of lost revenue, or to proclaim there is no home value loss and maintain the property tax assessments.

    My youngest daughter when she was 6 years old, we were using AOL because both kids were used to it, she was told by AOL, we are not allowing you to use that web site as we feel it is dangerous.
    Both decided to post comments to AOL "its non of your business where I want to go". Either allow me to do what I want or I will cancel you out.
    Their answer was OK,its your responsibility and they had access to all gun web sites.
    They then said to me,dad, cancel them out, we go else where. Lee

    Those 'registered' gun owners must be real bad guys. Obviously much more detrimental on home values than something like the state of the economy.

    Unless they've changed their practices, getting rid of them isn't easy. When we got our first Internet-ready computer a long time ago, it came with AOL pre-installed and against my wishes, my wife activated an account for our son.

    As you know, you don't pay your bill with AOL, they take it from you every month via a credit card they keep on file. When I tried canceling the account, they kept coming up with all kinds of reasons why trying they couldn't comply with my request. Long story short, I had to cancel that credit card to get rid of them.

    Funny twist on logic - when I asked the AOL person with whom I spoke one of the many times I called why they didn't send their clients and invoice to pay each month, she said, "If we sent every one of our subscribers a paper invoice, we would have to cut down a forest of trees every month." When I reminded her that every one of those subscribers has email and could receive an invoice electronically, the line went silent. Apparently she fed me a corporate line that did not include a response to that reasoning.

    When I buy a new computer, the first thing I do is download the anti-virus program I prefer. The second thing I do is delete every file with "AOL" in it.
