These damn Marxists all sing from the same songbook don’t they? Another jerk-off fishwrap newspaper is trying to expose legal gun owners. Let’s hope the backlash puts them out of business.
AUGUSTA, Maine – Maine Republican lawmakers expressed outrage Thursday over a newspaper’s request of police agencies across the state for their lists of concealed-weapons permit holders, but the paper said it never had any intention of identifying anyone on the lists.
The Bangor Daily News has invoked Maine’s Freedom of Access Act in asking police to release the information, a request police said they appear to be obliged to fulfill under state law. The newspaper’s request came two months after a suburban New York City newspaper published an interactive map with the names and addresses of thousands of permit holders.
“I’m surprised a Maine newspaper would lower itself to make such a request,” said Rep. Gary Plummer of Windham, who joined other Republicans, including the permit-holding governor, in asking Thursday for quick action on a bill to outlaw the release of publishing the names and addresses of concealed-weapons permit holders.
Gov. Paul LePage released a statement saying, “If newspapers would like to know who has concealed weapons permits, then they should know the Governor has his.”
LePage said he’s concerned the Bangor newspaper’s request “will incite fear among gun owners and non-gun owners alike regarding their safety. There is no reason why these records should be public and I encourage the Legislature to act quickly to make this personal information confidential.”
Maine House GOP leader Ken Fredette of Newport said publishing the names would let potential gun thieves know where gun owners live. Gathering information at the newspaper’s request also comes at a significant cost to police, he said.
“It’s time to stop harassing law-abiding gun owners and start implementing common-sense measures to ensure safety and protect the constitutional rights of Maine people,” Fredette said.
In case you haven’t figure it out yet, the media is at war with your freedoms. They are the enemy. Not just the voice of the enemy, but an active, anti-American statist conspiracy. They all read from the same playbook, they all have the same opinion, they all are pushing for a Socialist/Marxist tyranny run by their hero, Lord Obama, Black Jesus, Lincoln II. And they won’t let up for one second. The worms have finally come out of the woodwork; so for all the people who understand what America is supposed to be about, it’s bug stomping time.
Why should there even be such records? They don’t register televisions, or toothpaste, or paint, why tools?
It is NOT a tool record - It is the ‘requirement’ some states use to permit a person to carry a self defense tool. That is a complete and utter invasion of privacy - imagine demanding to have & publish every single voter registration or drivers license?
I can’t believe that people are putting up with this crap - good thing, the first thing OH Gov did after Newtown was propose that OH teachers be armed. Shut the Obama controlled media up here in OH immediately.
I think that background checks should be done on all ‘journalists’ requesting such records. We should publish their home address, political persuasion, pictures of them and their families, and whether or not they are armed. Also any damaging divorces, or if they are behind on child support, any outstanding warrents, where they went to school, and their grades.
You want my info, I want yours.
