LIBERTY ALERT! Update on Sandusky Register

Washington, DC (TLS). As reported on The Liberty Sphere yesterday, the Sandusky Register in Sandusky, Ohio has published the names of registered concealed carry gun owners. Not unexpectedly, the move has created a firestorm of controversy raging across not only Ohio but the entire country as citizens express their outrage at such a cavalier and unprofessional display of news reporting.

Word comes today that Ohioans for Concealed Carry, one of The Liberty Sphere's preferred sites, is organizing a massive campaign to contact the advertisers that utilize the Sandusky Register to urge them to withdraw their ads.

The Liberty Sphere has also received word that a group of legislators in the Ohio Legislature is considering amending the laws that allow these types of breaches of privacy to happen.

One legislator is openly calling for the Register to dismiss its managing editor, Matt Westerhold, for making the decision to publish the names. Westerhold has a history of doing this sort of thing, thus exhibiting an outright disdain for gun owners, at other newspapers where he has worked in the past.

Two important links are found below which will take you to Ohioans for Concealed Carry. These links will update you on what the organization is doing in light of the Sandusky Register debacle, as well as provide you with information on how to contact each business that advertises in that newspaper.

Here are the links:
