Posted on 01/24/2014 10:08:28 AM PST by Doogle
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.

Presstitutes in lock step goosestepping to the Fuhrer’s commands.
Sounds like a basis for class action suit. Who said collectivists are smart?
Even aside from the fundamental privacy issues, this is a bad idea.
What to do? Publish the names, addresses, phone numbers and emails of those who advocate or try to employ these tactics and give them a taste of what they want to deliver to those on their lists?
Sure is a tempting thought.
Solution, get addresses and personal data of the chains management, and publish on Web. Create dirt.
I think a public online database of divorce and criminal records for Civitas Media reporters is in order.
Somebody needs to start a data base with the names and addresses of every employee of this news rag an publish that at the same time in case anybody wants to know where they might live...seems only fair
They say the pen is mightier than the sword. I believe it is imperitive, for our safety, to have a database with the name and home address of every employee and officer of the newspaper chain. Becuase of the potential for damage I say we need to know the possible whereabouts of these people at all times, including where they drop their kids off to school and shop for groceries. Of course I don’t advocate doing anything with this information but it is important to have it compiled just in case.
They are mad that the fascists were not able to confiscate all legal guns after the Newtown CT. murders.
They obviously don’t want to take guns from violent criminals. They do want to take them from non-violent, honest, law-abiding citizens.
In KY the law states that information can’t be released.....legally. However we do have a Rat governor that likes to issue illegal EOs. So far he’s been getting away with it.
But I was told by the CC instructor that the Obozo feds were pressuring KY to give them the list.
I personally don’t believe Americans in general will ever reach a tipping point - far too many sheep. It’s not in most of them. But.....if they were to do so, hell would break loose.
I’m going to need the home address, social security numbers, and date of birth of all these guys. It’s only fair.
This is my state, and I have never heard of these people...in the background people; probably from somewhere else as most of the people here now.
They obviously dont want to take guns from violent criminals. They do want to take them from non-violent, honest, law-abiding citizens.
Now here’s an idea: why not post online the names, addresses and SS# numbers of everybody who works at that “national news chain”? Violate their right to privacy the same way they’re trying to violate ours.
We can start our own web site of Communist Journalists.
Add to that their children`s info, especially which schools and grades they attend and I`m with you. Do you think we could get pictures of the entire families? Also their social media info.
The Jack Ryan(R-IL) treatment.
Great that lib states just hand that personal info out,
How about handing out a list of illegals (and their addresses ) who sign up and get those special drivers licenses for illegal aliens, that are different that the licences the rest of us get?
That’s going to be a big database. Including some big names, with plenty of juice behind them. They have no idea. Go ahead, boys. Stir that hornets nest. See where it gets you.
Since the liberal left wants to put a target on gun owners who legally exercise their 2nd Amendment Constitutional Rights, I say this:
Let's start a database using public records act requests and FOIA requests to build a state by state database of those who do NOT have a conceal/carry permit or FOID card.
Let's put the target right back where it belongs: on the anti-gun weenies who eschew guns and the protection they afford. Let's see how they respond to being murdered, raped, pillaged, and plundered along with their families.
Who's with me? I have database skills, a website, and I know someone who's a very good Web Site designer. We can put this thing together in a matter of days and the first members of the Database will be the assholes who own these newspapers!
Other than the obvious invasion of privacy, how is this a bad thing? I realize they think they are embarrassing us or that people will be angry at us, but won’t this tell criminals to stay the hell away from us? I’m not a criminal but if this list was posted openly, I would definitely check it out to see who I WANTED to rob vs who I did not want to approach.
...it also tells them where they might be able to get a firearm when the folks are not home....
They along with their home addresses, email addresses, phone numbers and family members that I can find will be the first members of our new Database that identifies those who hate guns and want to take ours away.
Let's see how they like the target on THEIR backs for a change.
GOP needs to propose a big eco-tax on print media
I want a campaign started urging the gun haters to prove their loyalty to their cause by posting signs in their yards and on their cars stating they don't believe in owning guns! Think any of them are stupid enough to advertise to the world that they are sitting ducks?
And we’ll dig and find the names and addresses of the cretins doing this, and we’ll publish their information as well, along with the fact that they’re unarmed.
Now that would be justice!
Wasn’t that done and shown here for that NYS town?

These are the folks who need to hear from us also ... Let's get busy and find 'em!
That is going to require some memory. That is a big file.
Didn’t our legislature pass something making this sort of thing illegal in our state?
OK, how about a data base of all those who do not have weapons, who work for the newspaper chain? My guess is they would not like that very much.
That one might backfire. "Go ahead punk, Make my Day."
National newspaper chain? Hardly. National liberal propaganda and activism chain would be more accurate.
They count readers by how many copies they print.
If my house gets hit I will hold each and every one of these pukes personally responsible....
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.
No big deal, that would include just about everyone legally in America who is 21, 18 in some states, who has not committed a felony or been found to be dangerous to themselves or others. We basically all have the right, many don’t choose to exercise it and others have forfeited it.
Yes I believe they did and we will sue them into bankruptcy!
If your group follows through with the idea of publishing information about those with concealed carry permits, will you allow me to run an ad in your newspapers that identifies the name and address of those among your 1400 employees that do not have such a permit? That would be a very lucrative ad for you.
I recall that several states made it illegal to publish such list.
