A newspaper in Tennessee has seen fit to post a searchable database of concealed weapons permit holders, claiming that they are public record, and therefore the public has a “right to know.” I agree, anything in public record should be publicized. Therefore, I give you the following public records, because it is your right to know.
The decision to create the database rests ultimately with the editor of the newspaper, Chris Peck. With that in mind, I am posting the following information that was taken from free, publicly-available Internet sites.
This is Chris Peck
