Which Would You Rather Be Protected From?

The Journal Sentinel reported yesterday that:
West Milwaukee's Badger Outdoors last year again was tops among all gun shops in
the nation for selling guns that later were recovered by police during criminal
investigations, according to new data from the federal government.

But, the Feds are working on a law to prohibit the release of crime-gun trace information because, among other purported reasons :
National Rifle Association spokesman Andrew Arulanandam said the trace data was
used by anti-gun groups for lawsuits and argued its release could damage cases.

The question becomes, "Do we, as a society, wish to be protected from criminals who buy guns at legal outlets or to be protected from the free flow of information about threats to our safety?"

Once again, Cory has his own take on this question.
