From Bloomington, Indiana – home of the Herald Times’ gun owner database comes the following great news. The local Harley-Davidson dealership, one of the advertisers on the Herald Times’ website has decided to put their money where their mouth is:
“Harley-Davidson of Bloomington believes in freedom and is a strong supporter of Second Amendment rights … We believe the decision of the Herald-Times, a valued business partner, to publish a searchable database of gun permit holders in the state of Indiana by street, is an unnecessary and dangerous practice.”
The condemnation in itself is great, but here’s the part that makes me proud…and that makes me want to head down to Bloomington and pick up a 2009 Sportster Iron 883.
Update: if you saw this post when it went up yesterday, it mentioned a promotion that the Harley dealership was going to run with a local gun shop, where if you bought a Harley, you’d get a free gun. That promotion was cancelled by Harley corporate, but not because it was firearm related. Rather, Harley doesn’t allow cross-brand promos of any type.
Harley-Davidson of Bloomington is taking a stand for gun owners in Indiana. Regardless of the actions of HD corporate, the Bloomington dealership understands and respects the rights of American citizens to keep and bear arms.
My hat is off to Harley of Bloomington for standing up for their employees, and for gun owners across Indiana.
