Update on the Roanoke Times Article Endangering Virginia's Right-to-Carry Permit Holders!

Friday, March 16, 2007

 

After repeated contact from concerned, law-abiding gun owners the Roanoke Times has decided to remove the concealed carry permit database from its website and not repost it.

The Roanoke Times published an article observing the importance of open government and public access on Sunday, March 11. The focus of this particular article was concealed handgun permits and which citizens currently maintain a valid carry permit -- however, the Roanoke Times didn't stop there. After receiving a database of all concealed carry permittees in Virginia via a Freedom Of Information Act request, the paper provided a searchable database on its website, therefore allowing anyone with criminal intentions to determine exactly who in their community has a permit to carry concealed handgun, as well as the address of every permittee!   


We will continue to monitor this situation and provide you with updates as they happen. Rest assured that NRA is working with officials at all levels of Virginia government to ensure the privacy of concealed carry permit holders.
