I believe that Law Enforcement can tap into a database I do not belive there is an actual one or haven't seen one, but this is what is said about Concealed Permitees.
The names, addresses, and other personally-identifying information of all West Virginia concealed handgun licensees are public records. The virulently anti-gun Charleston Gazette routinely publishes the names of everyone who obtains a concealed handgun license in Kanawha County. Anyone from a nosy neighbor to an abusive ex has the right to see your CHL application in its entirety. WVCDL supports legislation protecting the privacy of CHL holders by prohibiting the public disclosure of the personally-identifying information of CHL holders

I believe the Cleveland Plain-Dealer has been publishing the names of new concealed carry licensees from Cuyahoga County (Cleveland) ever since the law went into effect in Ohio.
At first, I was outraged. I didn't like the idea that anybody who took the time to read the list could track you down if they wanted to. I was more concerned about theft than anything else.
But you know what? I got to the point that I just plain don't care anymore. It's my right to own guns and carry them concealed. And I will.
As far as theft, the potential thief better hope the hell I'm not home at the time he tries it.
Since the 2006 article, about 16000 more permits have been issued (or are in force) in SD. By my rough calculations, we've gone from about 7 1/2% of adults having a permit to just over 9%. Of course, that doesn't mean that all permit holders carry.
The only common sense gun legislation was written about 224 years ago.
I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.
There's no database up here in Wisconsin. Might need concealed carry before a list could be made.
