    Summary: The Buckeye Firearms Association sends word of another news outlet, the Sandusky Register, which has published a list of concealed handgun permit owners in Erie, Huron, Ottawa, Sandusky and Seneca counties in Ohio.

    From Michelle Malkin's blog: http://michellemalkin.com/2007/06/26/th ... un-owners/

    Question: Do we have a law in Georgia that prevents this? A confidentiality clause, for instance? Just curious.

    Re: Ohio Newspaper Publishes CC Permit Holder's Names, Age,

    Yes, we do. Though I can't remember where in the law it is right this minute.

    The Cleveland Plain-Dealer does the same for the Cleveland metro area.

    I forgot to add it to the list of laws, which is why I could not find it right off hand.

    50-18-72 (which is in ARTICLE 4. INSPECTION OF PUBLIC RECORDS)

    What's up with this happening so much?
    Anti-gun conspiracy?

    I vote for irresponsible behavior under the guise of 1st. amendment freedoms.

    I would agree, seems local papers pay no attention to those in another state that get in trouble over it.

    Each time the papers seems to say something like: We did this because the records are public, we had no idea we would receive this kind of reaction.
    Even though this is the 4th or 5th time a paper in the US received that "reaction" in the last 2 years.

    Do I detect a hint of patronage?

    The paper also calls it a public service. Yeah, for burglars. Or for some stalker who has been wondering whether that female has a gun and now knows she does not.

    Some boss might fire somebody on the list.

    The same thing needs to be done again, get the column author's info - home address, tel#, email and post it in the paper and online all over the place & then slam the guy with calls/letters/email and .... personal visits. :evil:

    And do the same for the editor as well. Maybe the paper's owner. All that stuff can be had through various legal avenues. I'm willing to guess that their opinion will change just as quick as the last guy that had this done to him.

    Unfortunately the firewall at work prevents me from accessing OCCW, but from what you posted, someone did a bang-up job getting that information. Perhaps putting that into an e-mail to the editor and author of the article will change some opinions.

    At least there is one Georgia law regarding licensing that I like.

    Amen brother!

    If I ever had the finances I would live according to this book How To Be Invisible. It is all legal and it keeps a lot, if not all, of this stuff confidential. I’ve made a few steps the biggest one is don’t use your home address to receive mail. Put your property (home, land, car, boat, etc…) in an LLC and your name won’t show up.
