LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — The editor of a local publication is retracting a move she called an exercise of free speech.

Gwen Moritz posted personal information, including names and zip codes of Arkansas’ concealed carry list on the Arkansas Business website.

A Facebook group since popped up called “Gwen Moritz breaks the law” that has a picture of the editor behind jail bars, saying she had broken Arkansas law.

The page also listed her personal information, including her address and phone number.

In the same publication she used to call out permit holders, Moritz issued an apology acknowledging she did not break the law, but saying her motive was pure and that she quickly realized what she did was wrong.

The apology went on to say she had to disconnect her house phone after it rang off the hook, and that she has recieved some threatening backlash.
