If passed, the legislation would bar cities and towns from revealing the name, address and date of birth of anyone who applies for a license to carry a concealed pistol or revolver. Current state law bars municipalities from disclosing the identities of people who have ever been granted such permits either by the attorney general's office or cities or towns. This would close what advocates say is a loophole in public records law.Why do gun owners want this type of privacy? Don't they claim that owning a gun is just like owning any other type of property? What makes the concealed carry permit different from other types of licenses?
