I am asking that you please remove this particular item from your cache on Google.com. I only ask because the item cached does present a very real and very dangerous problem for many Virginians. I am providing the link here: http://126.96.36.199/search?q=cache:...Fgunpermits%2F
Currently many Virginians are discussing legal options against both the Roanoke Times and the Reporter responsible for posting this information in such a public forum. This is not about being for or against gun rights. That's not what our concern is. It's about public safety. There are as you can imagine certain folks (Victims of Domestic Violence, Law Enforcement, Judges, Lawyers, etc…) who are unfortunately listed in this database provided. Many of these people are unlisted in the phonebooks and other public information systems for a reason. Now some, if not many of them, are in danger.
The Roanoke Senior Editors recently sided with us in our concerns and removed it from their own pages. I only ask that you do the same out of consideration for the safety of those who are now in the clear. This is an excerpt from the statement the Roanoke Times released in response to this issue: "Out of a sense of caution and concern for the public we have decided to take the database off of our website." The full text of there response can be found here: http://www.roanoke.com/gunpermits/
I appologize if this is the incorrect address to send this request to. If it is incorrect could you point me in the right direction?
