NSSF's weekly briefing of critical industry-related legislative, regulatory and legal news:
Calif. Concealed Carry Permit Holders’ Info Leaked
The California Attorney General’s Office published files including concealed carry permit holders’ names, addresses, date of birth, race and date the permit was issued. Leaked information also includes if the permit holder is a member of law enforcement or a judge. California AG Rob Bonta confirmed the leak. “We are investigating an exposure of individuals’ personal information connected to the DOJ Firearms Dashboard,” a spokesperson for the office told The Reload. “Any unauthorized release of personal information is unacceptable. We are working swiftly to address this situation and will provide additional information as soon as possible.” The leak came on the heels of the Supreme Court’s NYSRPA v. Bruen decision which struck down states’ “may issue” permitting systems, which California had. The Reload reported leaked information also included California retailer sales record databases and the state’s “assault weapons” registry. This is the very reason NSSF opposes registries. Despite promises that information will be safeguarded, private information is being weaponized for political purposes.
