Handgun permit holders same as sex offenders

The Roanoke Times:

A state that eagerly puts sex offender data online complete with an interactive map could easily do the same with gun permits

Then, they post a list of them noting:

You can search to find out if neighbors, carpool partners, elected officials or anyone else has permission to carry a gun

I’m sure someone will post addresses and phone numbers of the editorial staff of the paper. They always do.

Update: list seems gone now.

Update: List is there.

Update: Unsurprisingly, someone found the reporter’s address and posted it in comments at The Roanoke Times’ blog. Even more unsurprising is that the comments have disappeared.

    Nope, it’s still working, just checked it out.

    For the editorial writer’s address, check out the first comment on their own site:

    It really irritates the hell out of me that they equate gun owners with perverts who are a danger to the community.

  4. Rustmeister Says:

    I bet they’re getting hammered about now. I took their poll, the results are 98% against making that list public.

    It’s a petty, shortsighted way to make a point. This puts every permit holder at risk for burglary, theft and deadly assault.

    What a freakin’ moron. He needs to be taken out behind the woodshed and whupped.

  5. Kristopher Says:

    It looks like they have blanked out the comments.


  6. Jack Says:

    The good side is that everyone not on the list becomes a possible target. Jack.

    I am sure that the ex-wife who got a gun for protection against her crazy abusive ex-husband is happy to know her name and address is on the internet to tell her husband where she is – and that she is armed…

    If any other thing was being publicly revealed, the same people who want to expose gun permit holders would be sreaming about their 4th Amendment “privacy” rights. They’d be within their rights there, but anyone values that right or any other should at least respect the most basic human right of armed self-defense. They still have the choice to be an unarmed victim, but the only ones who need fear law-abiding gun-owning, gun-carrying citizens are tyrants and criminals–including the perverts with whom some want to pervertedly equate with gunowners.

    Here’s what this shit head wrote in a column in November

    My friends are hardly a representative sample of America. They are more politically aware than most and skew left. Two of them even moved to Canada after the 2000 election.

    Yep, about sums it up right. He ought to follow his friends to Canada – or just the same – back to Bend, Oregon where the pinko is from.

    And when are the progressive’s gonna root these shit heads out?? Seriously, he’s the reason I keep – at the end of the day – pulling the lever for Republicans , simply cause I cant stand to risk someone like this schmuck gaining any control over the country.

    Handgun permit holders aren’t the same as sex offenders? Just asking…

  11. countertop Says:

    They took it down and have an editors note up at the top of his column indicating that they learned there was information in the list which shouldn’t have been there or been published.

    Yep. Assholes

    In other news, I did look at it and found out even more of my neighbors pack than I had known before. Almost wish it was still up so I could make sure to invite each and everyone out shooting.

  12. Nomen Nescio Says:

    the list is gone as of now; the comments seem to be blinking in and out of existence. i see just over 450 of them right now, and maybe one of ’em goes against the outraged consensus. seems their web server wasn’t up to the stress of a Zumboing…

  13. SayUncle » Hysterics Says:

    […] Trejbal, the pants-shitting editorial writer who published a list of concealed weapons permit holders in Virginia and compared them to sex offenders, continued his pants-shitting: Extra police patrols were ordered Tuesday at the home of a newspaper […]

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
