You are 100% correct in their motives for publishing this info. They are so smug it makes me want to

In RI the names of CCW permit holders are private and can not be shared per 11-47-11 and 11-47-18.
However, there is nothing preventing the licensing authority to release the names of applicants. A friend of mine applied in a town that doesn't issue permits even though they are required by law to do so, and the police went and interviewed his neighbors about him and said he was applying for a permit to carry a gun. The police found no reason not to issue based on everything they knew, so the chief added another requirement: a psychological test administered at a state university. If it wasn't bad enough that he wanted him to take the test, when he contacted the university, they said there wasn't even such a test... This should be an easy case for the courts, but it costs thousands of dollars and the chief will probably do the same for the next applicant.
Here is the bill that will prevent the names for applicants to be released. Unfortunately, the bill came as a surprise on many of us and we weren't able to testify on the bill and it was held for further study.

In this state, virtually everything passes the House, only to get torpedoed in the Senate.

Kansas , made it a crime to divulge if someone has a CC permit. So, no LEO, newspaper, anyone in the Govt, at the DL bureau where we get our permits, etc. are allowed to divulge that info. to anyone else.
What brought this up was a local newspaper wanted the info to print it in the paper. Funny thing was, that several people threatened to take out ads in competiting publications the names, address and phone number of every employee of the newspaper, and all LEO's if they did. The legislature reacted very quickly by passing and moving the law thru for the Gov's signature.

Very hard to imagine how a newspaper could justify doing this. But some newspapers are owned by some very radical types. So I could see this happening.

We all have a pretend expectation of privacy; CCW or not the patriot act ensures no American citizen has the right to privacy any longer.

Lance, this has already happened in Oregon. It began in 2008.

So many counties had to supply the papers with the names and addresses of every CHL holder in their area. As we speak, Ryan Kost of the Oregonian is seeking the same for all Washington County holders.
There was legislation introduced in 2009 to protect the information of CHL holders, but it was neutered to the point of irrelevance by Rep. Judy Stiegler. There is new legislation that has passed the house, but Senate Judiciary Committe chairman Floyd Prozanski had said that he will likely not send the bill to the senate floor for a vote, even though he "supports the bill." Yeah right.
Here is the OFF Alert from back when it started.
A little gem from the Oregonian:
"We've always appreciated the fact that you could check whether your road-raging next-door neighbor also had the sheriff's permission to pack heat in an ankle holster."

Until the New World Order and its evil have their way (we Patriots hope never)....we have this little document called the Constitution that SAYS WE DO!
"The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people; it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government--lest it come to dominate our lives and interests." --Patrick Henry

You are correct we do; and based on the P-act I guess is a (right wing order) for lack of a better catch phrase..... that is all it is a piece of paper. The right wing is a bit more cleaver than the left. They enact legislation to remove the 4th amendment yet leave any talk about the constitution out of it, then give it a good name Patriot act; what could be wrong with anything that has the word patriot in it??? No you no longer have a protected right to privacy.. But the patriot act keeps us all safe???? I see you are a fan of Patrick Henry, I am sure one of his quotes have been re adressed to say "Take some of my liberty to keep me safe???" The pretend new world order had nothing to do with this travisty

Maybe they should publish a list of those people that rent adult videos or frequent prostitutes. Of course if we removed the politicians from that list it would get a lot shorter!
