Tim West: Revealing gun permit holders a dumb move
Illinois gun owners will doubtless remember a year and a half ago when the Associated Press used the state of Illinois Freedom of Information Act to try to obtain a list of the holders of Illinois Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) cards.FOID card holders objected mightily, and the Illinois Legislature passed a bill, which Gov. Pat Quinn signed into law, to exempt FOID cards from the freedom of information law and protect the privacy of card holders.
ANY NEW AGENCY OR REPORTER OR INDIVIDUAL WH EVER DOES REPORT STUFF LIKE THIS NEEDS TO HAVE TO NAMES OF THERE EMPLOYIES THERE ADRESSES THE FAMIALYS NAMES AN ADRESS WERE THEY WORK AN ANY THIN ELSE THAT CAN LEGALY BE MADE PULPLIC. LET THE MEDAI AN THERE FAMIALY LNOW HOW IT FEELS TO BE SINGLED OUT.
IMO ENDANGERING AN SINGELING OUT GUN OWNERS MIGHT BE A REALY DANGERIOUS THING TO DO.
IF THEY WANT OUR ADRESS THEN WE SHOULD HAVE THERES
This stupidity also endangers people who don't own guns in IL. All one has to do is look and see if the house you are about to rob is on the list of FOIDs they wanted to publish, if not they likely have no guns. Easy marks.
