Dear Mr. Maloney,
It disturbs me greatly that your publication, The Indiana Herald-Times, chose to publish information on private citizens with gun permits. This is precisely why I oppose oppressive registration for private carry of a concealed weapon.
As a former student of I.U., and resident of Indiana, I am appalled at the disregard for privacy you’ve shown. Just because information is publically obtainable does not mean it should be publically disseminated.
Your agenda of disarming American citizens is clear, but ill advised. I only hope that should you or your family ever become the victim of a violent, life threatening attack, one of those law abiding citizen you so distain is carrying a concealed firearm and will treat your safety with much more respect than you have treated theirs.
Sincerely,

Michael A. Hervey
Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense? Where is the difference between having our arms in possession and under our direction, and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands? — Patrick Henry, 3 J. Elliot, Debates in the Several State Conventions 45, 2d ed. Philadelphia, 1836
