Another paper publishes a list of handgun carry permit holders

This time, in Ohio.

Update: Meanwhile, some journalists ponder the ethics of such a decision:

I’m trying to think of a scenario where I would approve such a list being published. I’ll get back to you if one comes to mind.

and

I could only see doing it if there were a controversy over who was receiving gun permits. For instance, only political favorites. Similarly, we might run a list of people receiving bowhunting licenses, or dock permits or chiropractic licenses or whatever. But I don’t see a reason for running the list gratuitiously without a news peg.

    “journalists ponder the ehtics” ?????

    That’s a first.

    Doesn’t someone need to start publishing the home addresses of the editors and reporters of the Sandusky newspaper.

    It’s rather ironic that, I believe, Sandusky is reasonably near Camp Perry, where the national rifle and pistol championships are held each year.

    There will be the old publish and pull followed by the “Oh we’re sorry” routine that so many others have gotten away with. Kinda like when a guy beats his wife and apologizes for it afterwards… Yeah, that’ll make it better.
