Okay, I"m going to have to correct something. The article starts out by referring to the Journal-News. It then states:
The editor of a website in New York, who is apparently unaware of Kentucky laws, is apparently attempting to obtain information about handgun owners in Whitley County.
On Jan. 30, Harrell received an open records request from Aaron Nobel, editor of the website, Heavy.com, requesting copies of public records that contain the names and addresses of all handgun permit holders in Whitley County.
So, it's an unrelated website asking. That's what happens when you read too fast. Still kind of a weird request . . .
