So the Supreme Court rules that ‘May Issue’ is unconstitutional. Then the California Attorney General released a legal alert that removed the “good cause” requirement when applying for a California concealed carry permit. And then all California CCW holders’ personal information gets “accidentally” released? I’m not one to wear a tin foil hat but…
From the California Rifle & Pistol Association:
Just days after last week’s NYSRPA v Bruen ruling was released, Attorney General Rob Bonta’s new data portal made public (for at least some period of time) the personal data of every CCW holder in the state, including drivers license numbers, addresses, and much more. Those impacted include law enforcement, judges, and anyone else who has chosen to legally arm themselves for self-defense…like rape and domestic violence victims.
As of this email, the AG’s office has not formally responded to the breach or provided any information on if it has been fully controlled or even who was impacted. The timing of the breach, coming as Gov. Newsom, AG Bonta, and others scramble to thwart the 2A rights roundly affirmed by the Supreme Court last week, is suspicious at the very least.
This unconscionable breach is precisely why CRPA and our members vehemently opposed AB 173 last fall and will continue fighting that law and other violations of your rights!
Much more to come on this…
