Bloomington Times-Herald Losing Advertisers

NRA is reporting:

In a press release issued December 10 from Bloomington Harley-Davidson the business states, “Harley-Davidson of Bloomington believes in freedom and is a strong supporter of Second Amendment rights … We believe the decision of the Herald-Times, a valued business partner, to publish a searchable database of gun permit holders in the state of Indiana by street, is an unnecessary and dangerous practice.”

“I want to sincerely thank Harley-Davidson of Bloomington for their strong support of Indiana gun owners.  Gun owners appreciate their principled denunciation of the Bloomington Herald-Times’ reckless action of publishing a database of law-abiding right-to-carry permit holders,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director of NRA-ILA.  “Our freedom is the cornerstone of our democracy, and we are grateful to have businesses like Harley-Davidson of Bloomington on the side of the Second Amendment.”

Good news. Maybe some of their other advertisers will respond as well.

    Harley-Davidson dealers don’t spend that much on advertising so I doubt the newspaper is crying over this. Harley gets some free publicity, and that’s about all it’s worth.
