Ah, FoIA misused in Maine now...
 
The largest newspaper in central Maine just pulled a Journal News...

They claim they're doing a "study on domestic violence." One of our state reps introduced a bill that would exempt the CCW list form FoIA, so the paper is scrambling to get said list before it's illegal. They "don't intend to publish it." Riiiiight.

I like the part where they infer "we" misunderstood their intentions :p
