I'm sorry, the media outlets like the Register and other papers need to drop the issue of getting the names of those who have a conceal and carry permit. After all, what's the propose of the conceal part? To have the right to carry a firearm without others knowing it.
If media people want to make these people known to everyone, then just give the public a carry permit and let them strap a six shooter to their side, right out in the open just like the old West.
If newspapers publish the names of who can legally carry a gun, it gives the thieves a start of tracking them down, breaking into their homes and stealing the weapons, or the can see who they are, and find other people who have less of a chance of having a gun on them to rob.
Let's keep it where they, the bad guys, don't know who's who and maybe they think twice of robbing them. Would you rob anyone if you didn't know if they had a gun or not?
Printing the names of who can carry a weapon goes against our privacy, the bill that permits, and against common sense. So, to all you media types: Drop it. It's none of your business. If it was, so many police departments wouldn't have a problem sharing the names with you.
