One Straight Shooter

Ohio's concealed carry law allows "only the media to find out the names of those obtaining such permits" for weapons. So Cleveland's newspaper, The Plain Dealer, published the "names, ages and home counties of the 3,000 residents who have taken out such permits, citing the public's right to know." In response, Ohioans for Concealed Carry posted the newspaper editor's home address, phone number and other personal information on their website, along with a map to his house, saying, "The editor believes in open records." The editor's home phone has received "a steady stream of phone calls, some of them obscene."
