The newspaper's editor and vice president of news, CynDee Royle, earlier in the week defended the decision to list the permit holders.
"We knew publication of the database would be controversial, but we felt sharing as much information as we could about gun ownership in our area was important in the aftermath of the Newtown shootings," she said.
CynDee Royle made the decision to post pistol-permit holders in an online database in a move to threaten, intimidate, and treat us like sex offenders. I've been thinking about what we can do in response. How about mailing our target silhouettes to her home address? If she is so concerned about who legally owns pistols, she probably wants to know what we do with them. Let's show her.
If all 44,000 pistol permit holders in the counties went to the range, shot their pistols, took home the targets, and mailed them to CynDee, the inappropriateness of her actions would hit close to home.
Are there any legal considerations for this? For example, would it violate any spam mail laws?
I'm sure they're already feeling heat from pols, gun owners and curious people who see their private info that was posted online.
Remember when you got your permit and they made copies of your fingerprints...
I'm sure it was just to check them, and that they were destroyed immediately afterward.
And don't forget about that pesky "caller ID" thingy they have now...
What's good for the Goose:
