Default Ah, FoIA misused in Maine now...

The largest newspaper in central Maine just pulled a Journal News...

http://www.pressherald.com/news/Bangor-newspaper-seeks-names-of-concealed-carry-permit-holders.html

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.

Took less than two days for the people of Maine to voice their displeasure and force BDN to back down:

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