Annals of gun nuttery

Posted By on Mon, Feb 16, 2009 at 3:52 PM

The gun crowd has gone berserk in Tennessee because The Commercial Appeal in Memphis has posted on-line the names of all holders of concealed weapon permits in the state. It's a public record. The list in Arkansas is public record, too. Care to see it?

It's a big ol' file, hard to manipulate, about 7 megs. Tens of thousands of names (and a huge surge of new apps in the pipeline, State Police say, whether because of the post-Obama gun-buying frenzy or the phases of the moon or just happenstance.) It's yours on demand from the State Police, available in a spreadhseet format by e-mail.

Have fun searching for your friends. But I've checked this much: The current governor and the current congressional delegation are not in possession of concealed carry permits. The Huckabees, Janet and Mike, are armed.
