I was made aware today on a forum that I am on, that the Memphis Commerical appeal has decided that they need to publish their own database of handgun carry permit holders, along with their city, state, zipcode, birthday, and apparently up until recently, street name. It is true that these are indeed public records, but only do to the actions of former speaker Jimmy Naifeh. Most any 2nd ammendment related bill never even made it to a vote in TN. They were pretty much all killed in commitee. Thanks to this, now some of the most law abiding citizens in the state of Tennessee have their private information available from a search form. With the trend of identity theft these days, this is very troubling to me.
This is just a prime example of how partisan government is a bad thing. In this case though, the law abiding citizens of TN have decided to do their part to quell this abomination. I encourage everyone to use some of the following information to contact the involved parties to get this removed. Even if you do not live in TN, I encourage you to contact these parties as well. It is just a matter of time before this could happen in your state as well.

Take some time and fire up the word processor and grab your roll of stamps and send them letters at home. It is too easy for them to be overlooked when sent to a company address.
