Newspaper Establishes Registered Gun Database, Equates Gun Owners to Sex Offenders

(NRA)   On November 30, 2009, the Bloomington Herald-Times made the following announcement:

“This week, HeraldTimesOnline.com will launch its new gun permit database. You’ll be able to search gun permit records by county, city or town and street.”

The Herald-Times has begun receiving calls and emails, and their response is a defiant defense of their online gun permit database.

Anyone who visits the newspaper website will be able to search the number of permits on a given street or neighborhood. Although at this point the names and house numbers are not listed, the newspaper’s website treats law-abiding Indiana gun owners like sex offenders on a searchable database.

It is NRA’s firm belief that there is no public good served by the publishing or cataloguing private citizens’ gun ownership information, and that more harm is done by such an action. Law-abiding Hoosiers should not be subjected to the same treatment as sex offenders, and if the newspaper won’t listen to their constituents and customers, then NRA Members and Indiana gun owners should send a financial message by cancelling their subscriptions to the Bloomington Herald-Times.

Please contact the Bloomington Herald-Times to respectfully voice your displeasure at the irresponsible action the newspaper has made.

  • Our founding fathers specified the 2nd Amendment for damn good reasons!

    Firearms are a necessary check-and-balance against tyrannical & fascist government!

    Do you think there may have been a reason why Hitler kept the German populace disarmed??? (That was merely 70 years ago, so don’t tell me it was like ancient Greek history or something!)

    Do you think in Orwell’s all-to-prophetic novel 1984, Winston Smith, the Outer Party, & the Proles were unarmed for a reason???
    Firearms are a necessary check-and-balance to defend against tyrannical governments!

    The Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights says:

    “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”
