Cadets, Crime, and databases

Those were the topics from last night’s Gun Nuts Radio – the cadets at President Obama’s speech, the appalling murders of law enforcement in Seattle and the utter breakdown in the system that caused them, and of course the Indiana carry permit database being published by a local Bloomington, IN paper.

One of the things we talked about is the public service that we’re going to provide here at Gun Nuts for our Hoosier readers: an authorized journalist database. For every paper that publishes a list, or creates a database of concealed carry permit holders, we’ll add them to our growing list of “authorized journalists”. It’s something that we can do for the community, to let you know that there might be reporters living in your neighborhood so you can take the appropriate steps to protect your family.

  1. “. . . the appalling murders of law enforcement in Seattle and the utter breakdown in the system that caused them. . .”

    What breakdown?

    “The system” functioned as it is designed to do.

    What is the alleged “breakdown”?

  2. Shootin’ Buddy: I do get that the system did what it was designed to do. The problem to me is that if the system is designed to let guys like the shooter in Seattle walk the streets, the system is kind of messed up.

  3. Caleb,

    How can residents of other states find out if their CCW databases are open to the whim of crusading journalists?

    Thanks,
    Chris

  4. Check with whichever state agency processes the permits, they’ll be able to tell you if they’re a matter of public record or not.

  5. Speaking from the other side of the court room, SB is exactly right, the “system” did as it does.

    It ay not have been ” designed to let guys like the shooter in Seattle walk the streets”, but in the actual world thats exactly ow it works.

    Whatever state you are from, there are more- two, five times more- felons loose on parole, probation, and “good time” release than actually confined.

    I my state, fully a QUARTER of the people actually confined are there for murder. And since murders make up quite a small fraction of crimes…
