    Do you think your Information should be Public record?

    Ok here is a good one for you guys to dig into. Do you think your Information should be Public record because you have a Concealed carry permit? Talking about a data base like they have for sex offender's that has, your name,address and other information. Here is a video some may have seen.

    YouTube - CNN Piece on VCDL and Roanoke Times Exposing VA CHP Data

    this news paper is saying that Concealed weapon permits are public record and there should be a data base that people can search. They say the PUBLIC has a right to know about ever person with a Concealed weapons permit. What do y'all think? I say HELL NO. I do not need people knowing i have a permit and my address and so on. Only people that need to know is the state/police when they run a search on me.

    In Texas John Q. Public can not get this info. Thank the Lord and thank our State Reps.

    Are you kidding me???!?!?!? Are we criminals for exorcising our 2A right? PLEASE! Give me a break! Why should people know I have a firearm and my address? So someone who doesn't like the fact that I own them call and say "He pointed a gun at me". I have seen that happen and BAM automatic arrest and your permit is revoked. This really made me sick. This country is getting out of control!

    Absolutely not....

    Absolutely not,
    Heck, I was even worried about joining this site because it is so public. The advantage of Stealth will be taken away. Broadcasting there are guns here is an open invitation for home robberies. I have a 34 year old handicapped daughter here and I know that she can not defend herself if some BG wants into our house. Her only prayer would be to get to the phone and hope that the LE can get out here in a timely manor.
    I truly believe that the newspaper that published those lists are irresponsible and looking to save their circulation numbers. They are the BG in this case...

    Yes, but the sad fact of the matter is. That this information is out there for any one who wants it in some states. Other states keep that under lock and key. We need to push to get laws set up to keep this information away from John Q. I would check your loca/l state laws and make a few calls. For all you know your state is one of them that lets John Q look at your information.

    this is B.S. this will just become a way for criminals to figure out which houses to rob since someone with a concealed carry permit has at least one gun probably more. it is none of my neighbors business if i have a concealed carry permit. i can see no practical use for this database other than a road map for criminals to free guns.

    When I first got my FL CWL, the info was "public record" and I got a bunch of marketing stuff from various companies selling "mall ninja" badges and other sub-standard CC gear.

    I believe that they have since passed laws that make this info "private". I haven't received any marketing junk mail in the last couple of years.

    Databases for criminal actions are one thing, after all a criminal has demonstrated they don't care about the rights of others. None should be maintained for law abiding citizens, this includes CCW's. This isn't always the case though, drivers licenses, marriage licenses, even phone numbers and addresses are maintained in a database. Is this right? Many will say it's fine because they have nothing to hide, others will say it's wrong because it invades a right to privacy. Who is correct?

    Yes and no. While my DL may have my home address on it ( that's bad enough). If any one got that information from the DMV they would still have no way of telling if I'm a armed home owner. With a Concealed weapons data base or even just letting John Q have that information it's telling them. My address, that I'm armed with one or more guns and so on. This is not just people in my town being able to get this information your talking about any one in the state or even in the USA. While the data base may not as of yet be made ( John Q can still get your Concealed weapon information if they know how).
