Naming Names in Ohio

Two Ohio newspapers felt they should publish the information of concealed carry permit holders. After all, it is a matter of public record. So I'm sure they won't mind if I publish their info.

The Warren Tribune Chronicle published the names & birthdates of the CCW permit holders. The Elyria Chronicle-Telegram published the names & ages of CCW permit holders. Both papers did so in their print editions. Neither published the info on their web sites.

Open up the extended entry to view the info of the newspaper staff directly (& indirectly) responsible. It will be updated as new info becomes available.

I appreciate the info given but what I'm trying to do is a quid pro quo thing: this particular reporter didn't give the home addresses so I'm not going to print hers. Also, the address was unverified. It quite possibly could have been another person with the same name.

Again, I appreciate the info but I'm not going to post this reporters home addy unless she prints the addy's of CCW holders.

The sheriff & the reporters involved in the other case is a different story entirely, since they published the home addresses. If you find out their info & it's verifiable I'll be more than hapy to publish it.
