Memphis News Publishes Tennessee Concealed Carry Permit Holder List

Posted: February 22, 2009 in Nitegator

CommercialAppeal.com, has posted Tennessee’s right to carry permit holder list online! CommercialAppeal.com apparently feels that the “public’s right to know” outweighs your right to privacy. Their decision to publish this list has made it easier for criminals to target law-abiding gun owners. When the list was first published, it even included permit holders home address! CommercialAppeal.com removed the permit holders’ address but still included their full name, birth date, city, zip code, and the issue and expiration date of their permit. Let’s keep the pressure on to have this list removed completely by contacting CommercialAppeal.com IMMEDIATELY, as well as its President and Publisher, Joseph Pepe.

CommercialAppeal.com can be reached at (901) 529-2345 or 1-800-444-6397. Joseph Pepe, President and Publisher can be reached at (901) 529-2205 or via email by clicking here. Also, contact your State Legislators TODAY and respectfully urge them to support concealed carry permit holder confidentiality legislation.
