    Letter to the editor:

    Dear robbers, thugs, gang bangers, etc. You now know I have a license to carry. You can now safely rob and or murder, with safety, those who don't. Happy hunting.

    p.s. Why don't you start with the Indy Star editors etc. that brought you this database.

    Yours truly,

    Wouldn't this fall under Constitutional protection? What would be the grounds for a lawsuit?

    That and public record.

    I wonder who this "Pig Ugly" guy is

    My point is the press does have a right to public records, under the same Constitution that allow us to own firearms.

    Now the question is, how do LTCH records get closed? I would like the LTCH records to be the same as tax records--private.

    ETA: I'm mad as HELL about this!! I was the victim of a robbery for the strict purpose of obtaining firearms. Allowing criminals to see every potential gun source in the paper is irresponsible, not to mention dangerous, and will lead to more crime.

    To add insult to injury, I'm pissed off the Red Star wants to attack citizens from all over the state for political gain. I hope someone can humble these arrogant idiots!

    I moved here from Ohio a couple of years ago. The Cleveland Plain Dealer has been publishing lists of Ohio CHL holders since the CCW law has been put into effect.

    I thought I was getting away from this crap when I moved here.

    There are people who have sued them, but as I understand it, they got nowhere. What they did do was get at least one gentleman killed because the thugs planning on robbing him found his name on the list and preemptively killed him.

    After all, they argue, it's the public's right to know.

    It's nothing short of harassment of people with LTCs.

    You can find out more from Ohioans for Concealed Carry:

    I'm not done yet.

    What about victims of domestic violence or rape victims? If these folks get a LTC, why is the press advertising it?

    Who speaks for these people? How dare they risk their lives to make some point!

    If I have an LTC, it's my business and, regrettably, the state's business. Lots of things are public record, but that doesn't mean that the press needs to help the thugs out by making the information a little more readily available for them.

    You know, many in Ohio advocated publishing the addresses (and phone numbers, if I recall) of the paper's management and reporters.

    It's not such a bad idea...
  11. This paper has lost it. They are just so anti-gun that somehow I am sure they feel this does something to generate a controversey.

    Does anyone know any case law where the press lost, either in IN or elsewhere? I'm interested to know what the argument would be limiting the press from this information.

    +1 and they're not just after Indy anymore, but the entire state. Someone needs to go on the offensive and put that paper on the defensive.

    I'm glad I do not live there. it is a dam shame, because to me the whole reason behind gitting a CONSEALED permit is to do just what it says concealment. If I wanted everyone to know that I carried a would just wear it on my hip so everyone could see.

    Didn't they threaten to do this in the past, but were cowed into not doing it? Or am I thinking about a paper in another state?

    In any case, it's obvious these knuckleheads are getting some "advice" from people who are not from Indiana. I think that's one reason why they either assume we have "concealed" carry "permits" or at least why that language is used.

    I also note that the story about the woman who successfully defended herself from a violent home invasion on the east side Saturday night was a tiny paragraph buried in the middle of the Metro section on Monday morning. Had it gone badly for the home defender in some way, it would have been on the front page above the fold.

    This really ticks me off. I saw that yesterday morning and I'm just as mad now as I was then. I did post a reply back on their website. It is from annoyed reader.

    What can we do to stop this?

    Stop buying it and tell everyone you know what they did and try to get them to stop as well.

    I have not paid for a single Red Star in my life. They give them out for free at Ivy Tech. I know I will be telling my buddy at work (who has a LTC) that he needs to cancel his subscription and let them know why.

    e-mail, write, cancel subscriptions and let them know how much they F-ed up.

    Let's have an open carry protest, complete w/ signs & banners, @ the Star! They might freak out if a couple hundred armed citizens were parading around their entrance.

    Look, what is the feasibility of returning the favor? Can we publish the names and addresses of all Star editors and reporters?

    Make a website. Buy an ad in the Star. Print up flyers. Hand them out downtown Indianapolis. Anyone else want to fight them?
