Newspaper seeks to create national CCW database

From Fox:
A national newspaper chain with nearly 100 publications and 1.6 million readers is considering building "state-by-state databases" on concealed weapons permit holders, according to an internal e-mail.

They say they don't plan to publish it, but that doesn't mean they won't use it. One obvious way to use it without publishing it would be to note in their stories whenever someone with a concealed-carry license is accused of a crime. I'm sure there are other ways to use it, and simply creating the database is wrong... and that's assuming I trust their word not to publish it, which I don't.

That said, I think most states make it difficult or impossible to get the lists, and for good reason. It won't be as easy to compile as they think.

UPDATE: They have backed off already.
