    Has anyone tried to access the list? I just tried it and it says "no data." Is it possible that it has now been removed?



    EDIT: Sorry, it wasnt taken down. It was just acting up.

    I posted on Mark's article and I sent an email to Mr. Trejbal regarding his arrogance and ignorance.

    I asked that question earlier, on the other thread. No one's listed any yet. I tried to find a few on the website, but have only found Verizon. We need a paper to try to get the local advertisers.
    I'm not expecting to find any Roanoke Times in Alexandria, unfortunately.

    I think the paper also needs to understand that their columnist will be expected to be held accountable should anyone be harmed from that irresponsible, arrogant, bullying (he didn't think he would be at any risk for getting in CCW's faces) jerk. Maybe VCDL will have an idea as to how to have law enforcement look at possible reckless endangerment charges.

    The Roanoke Times Removes Database of Handgun Permit Holders

    March 12, 2007 — The Roanoke Times has decided to remove the online database of registered concealed handgun permit holders from its website.

    The newspaper is requesting the Virginia State Police, which provided the information, verify the data.

    “When we posted the information, we had every reason to believe that the data the State Police had supplied would comply with the statutes. But people have notified us that the list includes names that should not have been released,” said Debbie Meade, president and publisher of The Roanoke Times. “Out of a sense of caution and concern for the public we have decided to take the database off of our website.”

    The database was posted on roanoke.com on Sunday as part of a New River Valley editorial page column about open records. This column, as well as others that will be published this week, is part of a special focus on Sunshine Week, a national initiative to raise awareness about open government and freedom of information.

    I have not looked into this at all legally, but I'm wondering why the VSP sent them this information in the first place, and if it was proper for them to release this information at all. I'm sure there are others looking into it.

    I'm no legal expert, but I am hoping that someone finds a way to form this into a class action suit against the RT and/or Christian.

    Nothing like being sued by 130K+ Virginians who have proved themselves to be law abiding citizens!

    Not gonna happen. First Amendment almost certainly protects them on this one. If anybody made a mistake, and can be sued, it will be the Commonwealth.

    I went to the Roanoke Times site today and clicked on a link to all of their employees and I could not find the origional author of the story on CHP's. Maybe they let him go? Anyone know if this is true?

    You know...

    I noticed Roanoke.com has a privacy policy:

    http://www.roanoke.com/newsservices/wb/xp-59616

    In it there are terms and conditions for people who submit content. One of those conditions is:
    Pity Trejbal and the editorial board of this paper can't be bothered to abide by the terms they demand from everyone else....


    ETA: Another nugget from their privacy policy:

    I don't believe they got my advance permission before they disclosed my personal information on their website.....
