WRAL stop endangering Law abiding Gun Owners

    1. Petition by

      Ruger LC9LM

WRAL chose to publish a list of people that have gone through the proper channels and obtained a handgun carry permit, and only removed names, and most addresses. This poses a huge risk to those that have done so as a result of being victims of rape and domestic violence as well as other law abiding citizens.  We have pleaded with Mark Binker to remove the street information so people can NOT be identified and he refuses. Please help us urge WRAL to do the right thing.

      Robbers attacked a home based on a Facebook post that depicted a large sum of cash. Just think what they will do with info on the location of guns.

      "A girl who was raped at gunpoint on a college campus in Nevada is now trying to convince lawmakers to allow people who are licensed to carry firearms to be able to carry them on college campuses. A similar law was just passed in Arizona and this girl is making it her crusade to have this approved in as many states as possible.

      She is in fact licensed to carry a concealed weapon but she wasn’t allowed to carry it on campus when she was raped. She believes if she had things would have been very different"

      If she lived on one of the small streets in the viewing area, she would be identified, not by name, but by having a permit to protect herself.

    5. WRAL responds, denies posting addresses and stands by "outing people"

      Concealed weapon permit holders’ personal information has always been part of the public record, including name and street numbers. We understand the potential concerns with posting that specific information and we proactively stripped the 78,000 file database of that information.
      This is not a gun ownership database. You can’t look at it and determine which houses have guns and which don’t. In NC, for example, you are not required to have a permit for a shotgun. Therefore, there are many streets where guns are located that are not indicated in the database. The database only identifies how many concealed permit holders there are on any given street. "

      So they are completely ignoring small streets, and potentially targeting Permit Holders, even those that might be victims of domestic abuse or rape. And the fact that the did a poor job of stripping the data.

      WE STRONGLY URGE WRAL TO REMOVE THIS DATA AND STOP ENDANGERING THE LIVES OF PERMIT HOLDERS.

      This is dividing people and only causing strife, I haven't watched news for several years now and because of things like this they will not get my viewership or community!

      Maybe they would think differently if we posted their home addresses!
