Tennessee Paper Publishes Concealed Handgun Permit List

March 4, 2009 at 10:15 pm (Guns, Politics)

Well, another newspaper has decided it would be a good idea to provide a searchable database of all the concealed handgun permit holders in their state.  This time it’s the ‘Comercial Appeal’ in Tennessee.  They try to justify it at http://www.commercialappeal.com/news/2009/feb/15/inside-the-newsroom-case-for-gun-permit-listings/ (No links for them, sorry)

The list can be found at http://www.commercialappeal.com/data/gunpermits/ (No, I’m not linking it, copy & paste it if you want)

Feel free to express your displeasure with their decision to make the data available by calling them at 8OO 444 6397 or by their online feedback form at http://www.commercialappeal.com/feedback/

If you do, please be polite.  No sense ranting at them, it will just perpetuate the stereotype.
