"The Second Amendment," Charlton Heston used to say, "is America's first freedom." The Second secures the rest.
It's a message narcissistic journalists need to hear again. A decade ago, Heston chastised the media in a National Press Club speech for its collective ignorance, apathy and open hostility toward gun owners' rights

If they want to publish the names of CCW permit holders, then they might as well just carry the damn things openly.
This is harassment, pure and simple, and I will never agree to any policy or ploy which deliberately singles out law-abiding citizens in this manner.
Why not just publish the names and addresses of people who don't own guns? That would be okay, wouldn't it?
The Roanoke Times on Monday night removed the online database of registered concealed handgun permit holders from its website ~ people have notified us that the list includes names that should not have been released.
Gun owner database removed
the group might publish a photo of Trejbal's home on its own website -
along with his address, the cost of the house and all other public information pertaining to Trejbal.
It may do the same for other executives at the newspaper, he added.

if there is a smart criminal out there, they could have went onto the website find out who DOESN'T own a gun and then go rob them. I would make the debate that reveling the list hurt non gun owners more then gun owners.
"I've moved twice to get away from a violent ex. Now I have to move
again. I really appreciate you publishing my address. Gee, thanks."
a parole officer ~ had THREE parolees show up at his residence, one while only his wife and child were at home! All three admitted to getting his address from the list published on the Internet by the Roanoke Times.

that is so wrong some of these people on the list were domestic abuse victims. and this idiot reporter put their street addresses on the net.
they are asking for a gunfight for their paper to report usually if a woman asks for a concealed permit in a dm sitution it means her ex is very likely to ignore a dnr or order of protection . usually you aren't allowed to give out their addresses just for that reason. and for people who think gun control works so well look up crime statics in countries that do not allow firearms. the criminals will buy them illiegally or use a different type of weapon.
