ALERT: Newspaper Chain Creating Database Of All CCW Holders Nationwide

ALERT: Newspaper Chain Creating Database Of All CCW Holders Nationwide
Robert Gehl

ALERT: A large newspaper chain is about to take it upon themselves to build a national database of all concealed-carry permit holders to publish in their 100+ publications.

Civitas Media, which owns 88 newspapers and other publications in 12 states, considers this an important “enterprise” project across all their newsrooms. An internal e-mail received by the Buckeye Firearms Association in Ohio tells all:

Civitas Media editorial report – Jan. 13- Jan. 17
From Jim Lawitz

We are launching two enterprise projects across our newsrooms this month. …The second project examines the explosion of “conceal and carry” gun permits across the U.S. 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.

The Buckeye Firearms Association contacted Lawitz, who said the newspaper chain “currently” has no plans to publish the database, but it seems ridiculous to go to the effort to collect all the data and just sit on it. It’s inevitable it would be published, putting all CCW owners in danger.

Following the Newtown tragedy, a New York newspaper published an interactive map of all CCW holders in their coverage area. The website sparked outrage and the newspaper removed the interactive capability, making it impossible to individually identify CCW owners.

Here is a link to the newspapers that Civitas owns. If you live in their coverage area, contact their editors immediately and demand they put a halt to this dangerous privacy violation of law-abiding Americans.
