I’d like to thank The Tennessean, The Roanoke Times and others for the fact that South Carolina is likely making it’s handgun carry permit records off limits.
A victory for the right to privacy.
Note that the article is written by a blog entitled Common Sense Journalism but the author doesn’t seem to use any and advocates against the law citing journalist’s need. Perhaps he’s unclear on the term need. But, honestly, if alleged journalists hadn’t been irresponsible and published lists (one even comparing permit holders to sex offenders), I doubt SC would be passing this law.
