Newspaper chain plans 'state-by-state' concealed weapon databases
#1
Quote:A national newspaper chain with nearly 100 publications and 1.6 million readers is considering building “state-by-state databases” on concealed weapons permit holders, according to an internal e-mail.

The plan, laid out in an email from a top editor at North Carolina-based Civitas Media, could be similar to a controversial project a New York state newspaper carried out in 2012 which included an online map that identified gun owners in two counties by name and address. Civitas' database project was detailed the plan in a Jan. 19 e-mail to newsrooms in 11 states, including Ohio, Illinois and Pennsylvania.

The newest project "examines the explosion of ‘conceal and carry’ gun permits across the U.S.,” wrote Jim Lawitz, Civitas’ director of content, in an e-mail first obtained by the Buckeye Firearms Association.

“Through public records act requests, we will attempt to build state-by-state databases that list those who have the right to carry a concealed weapon.”

Quote:Statement from the CEO

Civitas Media never had any plans or intentions of publishing in print or online lists of holders of “conceal and carry”...
It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"

Who cares? I see lawsuits will be flying at record pace though.

Fair play would dictate that anyone who has had an abortion should be in a data base after all it's a right no different than the second amendment

I suppose the other paper who felt the need to post armed guards after someone posted the names and addresses of those at the paper responsible for printing the names/addresses of permit holders hasn't let them know how that all turned out for THEM.

Well it made the front page headline on the Fox News website...so it must be pretty serious.

I personally do not like the way it screams "Rob my home...I have weapons to steal". You get a database out like that, and it's not hard for someone to stake out your house for a few weeks and find out when the house is generally empty. NOT cool.

I don't care who knows that I always wear short sleeves. Get? Keep and bare arms?

But seriously, hopefully Mr CEO boots a few asses out the door.
tolerance for failure meter... LOW

I can do this for them. Here I go, sources cited:

Per the CotUS, everyone has the right to carry a firearm. Otherwise it isn't a right.

Now, what they are saying is their right. It is also our right to post their info online as well......

Also, some states make that information confidential and not subject to FoI requests.

Right. Rolleyes His next statement will be:

"We don't know how all that information got out into the public domain. Somebody hacked our database." Wink
I don't suffer from insanity.
I enjoy every minute of it.

What's the point?

Anyone that tried to take advantage of knowing that I have a permit wouldn't leave happy.
