"Buy a Harley, Get a Gun" promotion sparks controversy


December 11, 2009
A planned promotion to support Second Amendment rights gets pulled.

On December 1st, Bloomington's Herald Times posted a database of current gun permits.

The local Harley-Davidson shop in Bloomington was outraged. A long-time advertiser with the paper, owners saw it as an unnecessary and dangerous practice.

They planned a promotion with Cosner's Guns - Buy a Harley, Get a Gun. Just as soon as it was planned, it was pulled.

The NRA has blasted the newspaper as well, saying the list makes it easy for criminals to target homes with or without guns.
