Default Newspaper chain plans 'state-by-state' concealed weapon databases

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2014/01/24/newspaper-chain-seeks-to-build-state-by-state-concealed-weapon-databases/


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.
They are denying it, but I guess we'll just have wait & see if they are dumb enough to try it. One would think that they would've learned from the last idiots who thought this was a good idea.

From their home page;

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” permits. Nor will Civitas Media develop databases of permit holders. A poorly crafted internal memo meant to highlight editorial discussions and planning incorrectly indicated that such a database was being planned; it has been considered and rejected.

Michael C. Bush, CEO

The good news is even the left is afraid of the consequences of such stupid behavior

Yep, pretty much.

The fact that we're even discussing this leads me to feel that data on concealed weapons permit holders should no longer be public.

It is very funny that Civitas Media would take the name of a long standing conservative think tank. What I am seeing Civitas Media was formed in 2013 with the merger of over 100 newspapers. Apparently they intend to form digital news sources from failing hard copy newspapers.

Civitas Media is doing all it can to reassure everyone concerned that they have no intention of forming such a database. From this side of the hill, if it looks like a rat, smells like a rat, it is a rat.

I realize the Civitas Institute has no exclusive rights to the name Civitas. It just makes me wonder....

It's been done once and if Civitas backs off somebody else will try to do it...if just to stir up publicity. If there are grounds for legal action the NRA-ILA will figure it out. In the meantime I don't care what they do. They can publish directions to my house if they want to, whoever comes here univited is gonna get their head blown off.

Sounds like a great plan except for one thing: not all states make this information a matter of public record:

http://ballotpedia.org/Public_access_to_concealed_carry_lists

Thankfully my state does NOT allow this information to be public. So. while these idiot journalists attempt to compile their lists from the usual suspect moronic states (NY, MD, CA et al) we can marvel that America's most bragged-about state, the one where firearms freedoms are "all that "and everybody else sucks - yes, Bucky, that would be Texas - allows the names to be released! Yee-ha!

Pay back is a bitch. Post personal information of all their executives throughout social media. This was done a few years ago after a paper listed gun owners on a map. We can do it again.

All this is a reaction to nutty people killing innocent people, now thats crazy! They really are saying every citizen must be treated like they are insane until proven otherwise! Assumption is the mother of all Phuck ups, their assumptions this time are going to backfire like an old Alice Chalmers.

They really arent used to us fighting back. For the evil murderous critters we are portrayed as, weve not been very vocal until now. Thats been changing, people that have been generally accepting of FOOG until now but anti 2a is bigger than forced inoculations and required permits for things other than Firearms.

We move from one extreme to another pretty quickly now a days. The 2A debate blew right through any thoughts of consensus to your a criminal because I say you are if you dont agree with me. Thats a bridge too far, they are gonna pay for this bridge to nowhere like no bridge they ever bought!
