    How many people in this string have actually taken a look at their home state's laws on this particular matter?

    South Carolina enacted a law in 2008 which restricts access to their list of Concealed Weapons Permit holders to law enforcement officials for official investigations or by subpoena or court order:

    SLED must maintain a list of all permit holders and the current status of each permit. SLED may release the list of permit holders or verify an individual's permit status only if the request is made by a law enforcement agency to aid in an official investigation, or if the list is required to be released pursuant to a subpoena or court order. SLED may charge a fee not to exceed its costs in releasing the information under this subsection. Except as otherwise provided in this subsection, a person in possession of a list of permit holders obtained from SLED must destroy the list.

    (See paragraph (I) of SECTION 23-31-215. Issuance of permits in the above link.)

    Here are a couple links from 2008 discussing this:

    What does your home state have to say about this?

    Here is what the Memphis Commercial Appeal returns on me:
    http://www.commercialappeal.com/dat...rtType=&CPIorderBy=&cbCurrentRecordPosition=1
    They used to return street address as well, but were pressured by evil demon gun rights nuts into withholding street address. Really peeves off people who are stalking spouses with protective orders who have relocated and gotten permits out of fear. Street address would be useful.

    Back to my use of the Commercial Appeal gun permit website:
    http://www.commercialappeal.com/data/gunpermits/
    According to CommApp reader Gregory W. Boller of Collierville TN, "If we know who these people are who carry concealed weapons, we can give them wide berth and/or keep their actions under close scrutiny."

    Just this past week I had opportunity to test this.

    Kingsport Times-News reported Antonio Johnson, 36, of Kingsport TN charged with firing shots in Blountvillle. On the list two persons same last, first name, Antioch TN YOB 1984, Memphis TN YOB 1972, apparently not the person I would need to beware of or keep under scrutiny.

    Kingsport Times-News reported Derrick Dakota Kitzmiller, 21, of Gray TN charged with firing shots at Tennessee Highway Patrolman Jeff Appleba. On the list, "no records found" so if I relied on Commercial Appeal gun permit website, Derrick Kitzmiller would be an OK guy, not a person I would need to beware of or keep under scrutiny.

    Back in the 1960s I sometimes would declare that "we gunowners are the n****rs of the liberals, the people the urban left love to hate and enjoy feeling superior to."

    Reading some of the commentary supporting these outtings of gun permit holders by Journal News and Commercial Appeal and other newspapers, I have come to realize that we are the Juden Untermensch of this new generation of left wingnuts, and if they had their way we would be required to wear little yellow guns sewn to our clothes if we dared venture into public. (U Colorado has seperate dormitories for gun permit holders.) The worst of the anti-gun nuts have called for more Wacos (their version of Kristallnacht) to teach us a lesson.
