That's true, Ishi, but it's a little unnerving considering the behavior of newspapers in areas such as Ohio. All it takes is one reporter with an agenda, coupled with some drive for achievement, for my name & address to be in circulation.
That sounds like a good supreme court test - sue the government for allowing invasion of privacy for only exercising your rights. Library checkout records aren't public, neither should be lists of CCWers.
I had no idea this was public record until I read this. While I really don't care if someone knows I have a permit, I have a real problem with my address being accessible to the public. A few years ago the TN pharmacists database had addresses posted on the internet. Some pharmacists had people waiting for them when they got home. I don't really know what happened. Pretty scary.
