Got a CWP? Newspaper chain wants to “out” you.

The right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed — what part of that confuses Liberals?

If anyone believes silence means inactivity when it comes to the liberal progressive assault on American’s Second Amendment rights, you are truly gullible.

I imagine the recent spate of college campus shootings and today’s Maryland shopping mall shooting has given the left a renewed energy. And following on the efforts of a New York newspaper to publish lawful gun owners’ residences, another media publication may be considering outing holders of concealed weapons permits (CWP).

According to Fox News,

A national newspaper chain with nearly 100 publications and 1.6 million readers is considering building “state-by-state databases” on concealed weapons permit holders, according to an internal e-mail. Civitas’ database project was detailed in a Jan.19 e-mail to newsrooms across the chain, which has papers in 11 states, including Ohio, Illinois and Pennsylvania.

In the leaked email, Jim Lawitz, Civitas’ director of content stated,

The newest 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.

Let me kindly assist Mr. Lawitz in his endeavor: Allen B. West, concealed weapons license holder, State of Florida.

Michael Hammond, legislative counsel for the Gun Owners of America, said he believes Civitas Media will ultimately publish the databases, despite Lawitz’s statement to FoxNews.com to the contrary.

“Why would a newspaper chain go to the trouble of compiling a list if they had no interest in publishing it?” he said. “Isn’t that what newspapers do? It’s clear that this newspaper chain doesn’t intend to do [gun owners] good.”

I have to agree with Mr. Hammond. Why would anyone in the news media seek to gather information for any other purpose than for its publishing? Clearly Civitas Media and the progressive Left are part of the overall progressive socialist effort to attack and demonize conservative groups.

Consider the comments of New York Governor Cuomo insisting that those who believe in their Second Amendment rights have no place in “his state, New York.” During his first run for the presidency, Barack Obama made reference to “bitter Americans who cling to their guns and religion.” And just recently New York Senator Chuck Schumer talked about increasing the efforts of the IRS and other government agencies to target conservative groups, specifically the constitutional conservative grassroots movement, the Tea Party, during a speech at the Center for American Progress, a far left liberal think tank supported by billionaire George Soros.

There can no longer be any doubt that America is living under the yoke of tyranny from a threatening government the likes of which we have not seen since the British — and it is blatantly in your face.

Throughout history, when a society and its people are disarmed, the results have always been horrible.

How timely are these words from Thomas Jefferson:

Laws that forbid the carrying of arms . . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes . . . Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.

And from James Madison, “Disarm the people — that is the best and most effective way to enslave them.”

Jefferson and Madison, two American Presidents, wrote the documents that fundamentally established these United States of America, the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution. Our current president, Barack Hussein Obama stated he wanted to “fundamentally transform” America. Given his actions to date, it is not a stretch to say he wants to destroy the works of Jefferson and Madison. If so, from his own mouth he hath convicted himself of high crimes and misdemeanors against our Constitutional Republic, America.

That’s a very good point. I put a really big clothespin on my nose and voted for the Mittenator last time around due the alternative being Maobama, but many sat it out because they just couldn’t bear to do what I did. The sad thing is that I feel like I voted for the Dog Eater® anyway.

The solution is to publish the names, addresses and relevant personal information of Lawitz and his ilk. On edit I believe Terry was a winning plan.

No offense but, thieves and thugs enter into people’s homes every day/nite regardless of knowing if anyone is home or not. With that being said, some are often shall I say, “surprised” to find the homeowner IS at home when they feel the barrel of a gun up their nose.

Sherill Weber

Do they realize that they would only be creating a Criminal’s shopping list? The last time a newspaper did that a little over a year ago,,,homes were broken in and the only thing taken were the guns. Tight gun controls on who can purchase a gun,,,so the guy/gal that can’t go to a published home and do their shopping. They put a stop to the last newspaper so hopefully they can put a stop to this one. If not, gun owners you better be wearing a gun holster and keep that gun on your body at all times.

cointelanalyst

I have a lot of guns in my house. and a lot of ammo. and all are strategically placed. I still would not want my addy published because when I leave my home, I don’t take all of those weapons with me.

Sherill Weber
Guest

I agree with you. They put a stop to it a year ago and I think they will put a stop to this also. That should be private information for only you and the police or whoever has your records of owning a gun. Nobody else should be allowed to have that. In Chicago we have so much gang violence with guns that I don’t think our state will allow that information to be given out.

Sherill Weber

The school shootings are getting too much. But if you look it history it’s been going on a couple of hundred years. The worse school killing was a guy who killed his wife then went to the school and blew it up, killing over 45 people, mainly kids. That was in 1927, Bath Township, Michigan. What they don’t take about are all the gang shootings and how many innocent kids and adults are injured or killed. I never see any outrage over that from the news media or our government.

I know of a case where an abused woman had a CCW and had her name in that paper. She was in hiding in fear of her life. She had to pack herself and her three kids up in the middle of the night and run for her life. She is now safe, but what about all the others? Restraining orders are only a piece of paper and try to get it enforced. But a weapon will be much more effective. I hope that states refuse the request of all papers for lists of CCW permits.

I’m not worried. My home is more secure than most and my dogs are suspicious of strangers, Also, no member of my family is untrained or unprepared. … And really, where I live, the house without guns would be the very unusual one.

I’m truly glad for you, really. But not everyone can make their house into a fortress or have watchdogs around to guard things when they’re gone. A firearm is a great equalizer. But the libs and the govt are trying to do the same to gun owners that theyve been doing to smokers… incrementally making it illegal and ostracize anyone who owns or carries.

As it is illegal for felons to get permits, you are correct. However this is all just smoke and mirrors for a powerful central government that controls every aspect of our lives.

exactly they can’t take over in total until the public is disarmed. It’s what happened in Germany…

The way to fight back is to hit them in the pocketbook. If they plan on publishing a list call their advertisers and threaten to boycott them if they continue to advertise with that paper.

Another things that is happening, which I know a lot of you know about, unemployment is starting to go up. Layoffs are starting. United Airlines announced approx. 685 people being laid off, Macy’s 2,500 people being laid off, Penney’s laying off 2,000, Sam’s Club just announced 2,300 laying off and Dominicks closed their stores in Illinois laying off around 6,000 people. You know when unemployment grows,,,so does burglaries and thefts.

How much farther can it grow before he topples over from the weight? We have to change the Senate in 2014. He has too much leverage with the Democrat Senate. Also that way we can cut Harry Reid out. He seems to be controlling a lot of things in the White House. Makes you wonder who is really running things. And in 2016,,,no Hillary. They are bashing the Tea Party so bad right now which makes me believe they are running scared because they know the Tea Party can beat their butts.

That is very commendable to properly protect your weapons. I do the same with multiple safes in my house, but consider the following: you are sleeping, they get in, you can’t get to your safe in time. You have workers and they disable your alarm and get in when you aren’t home, lay in wait. You are having a BBQ and they take you and guests by storm out back and force you to open your safe, maybe kill the witnesses. They follow you home and push in when you are solo. You have a babysitter, they force in and… Read more »

They say the best leaders lead by example. Ok, we’ll voluntarily disarm after Obama and Congress disarm all security personnel protecting them. Because if it’s safe enough for citizens to disarm, then it’s safe enough for them as well. I know it won’t ever happen because this is not about public safety, it’s about government control.

Obama extended their protection for life. Bush cut it down to about 10 years. Don’t hold me to the Bush time frames but you can hold me to Obama’s lifetime protection. Guess he thinks he will need it.

This morning I posted on my FB page this:

Just a thought, one I am sure a lot of you won’t share with me.

With all the shootings going on, isn’t it time to do away with all gun carry laws? I do not think a concealed carry permit is in line with my right to bear arms and protect myself and those I care about. If you want gun control, then open up free gun handling classes and maybe require attendance when a gun is purchased. Just sayn’

BobD
Guest
Rod, It seems that you think law abiding gun carrying citizens are doing all this shooting, you need to look up the statistics. For example, a house around the corner was shot up in a walk by. It was drug deal related. If I am sitting in my house and it is getting shot up, I want me equalizer handy, in case they decide to enter. A former neighbor was dealing drugs, these idiots get addresses screwed up once and a while.

Quite honestly I wouldn’t care who knew considering that IT’S LEGAL! But there is a good amount of CWP owners who are victims of stalkers as well as witnesses to crimes. This paper should be sued into nothingness. How DARE they act like these people are registered sex offenders. If they think this is going to stop people from getting guns THINK AGAIN! Piss off law abiding Americans and you will eat crow!!!

Jay Jay

True Clyde, like that six year old who kissed a girl on the hand in school. The principal was putting him on the sex offender list. To clarify I was more referring to child molester/child murders. Those are truly the names people want published because their punishments for such crimes by the law are SOOO weak. Victor Salva the director of the Jeepers Creepers and Powder movies raped a 12 year boy on the set of one of his films and got a little under two year prison sentence.

BobD; Not sure how you got that out of my post. I just said that I want all CC done away with. We should be allowed to carry because of the 2nd amendment.

That didn’t go too well here in NY. After the article and interactive map hit, the Newspaper article’s Author their Editors and anyone else involved had to have armed guards or off duty police guarding their newspaper’s offices and personal homes.

The public information law was then changed in NY because the Politicians got severe pressure and some Politicians even advocated no release of information on their own concern.

Bill Griffin – I thought the very same thing. I want the potential burglar / intruder to believe I have a gun and am ready to use it (I do and I am). Then maybe the bad guys will go on to the house which is not armed (some nice intentioned lefty, that is). If I didn’t have a weapon I’d be more worried about the published list than I would if my name were on the list of people known to have a weapon.

“Civitas Media never had any plans or intentions of publishing in print or online lists of holders of “conceal and carry” permits. Nor will Civitas Media develop databases of permit holders. A poorly crafted internal memo meant to highlight editorial discussions

One other Thomas Jefferson quote that does fit into your statement “Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law’, because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.”
Jefferson warned us about government turning into tyranny. We know tyrants fear an armed people. May be the reason the progressive left are so determined.
