What is wrong with CCW lisences being a public record

In Roanoak Va. a real mental giant published the entire New River Valley Virginia CCW permit holders list, complete with addresses, phone numbers, in the Roanoak Times. Included in the list were women who carried weapons to protect themselves from abusive ex's, like this woman who wrote:
"I've moved twice to get away from a violent ex. Now I have to move again. I really appreciate you publishing my address. Gee, thanks."
They've also given criminals a shopping list of places to go to obtain stolen weapons. While I understand the need to do background checks to purchase weapons, this is the very problem that generating such a paper trail opens up. Now anyone, including the government itself, who wants to take your gun away from you knows where they are.
