    is your name in the CC database now on the internet?


    Is there anyone who hasn't heard that the WHOLE NY state database (old and new) of pistol permits is now avialable on whospackingny.com ? You can see which pistols your neighbor has, how many, etc. http://www.whospackingny.com/

    It turns out that these data are public records and available to anyone for $3. Posting them on the internet, however, has lots of people upset and concerned.

    Interestingly, Tennessee, Indiana and South Dakota databases are also available on the net.

    How about your state. Are the data public records available to anyone?

    A local TV station, WFTV, decided this would be a good idea in Florida.

    The list was up for less than a day - they station got deluged with emails, calls, and visitors.

    Within a couple weeks, there was a bill on the floor in Tallahassee to close the CWFL list, and it passed in short order.

    Roanoke Times did it here in VA.

    Pulled it after an up-roar. AG opinion closed down access to State data base.

    Some local newspapers still go the the local Court House (where our permits are issued) get the information on recently issued permits and publish them.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    It's against the law in Missouri to have any database of CC holders.

    I don't know if The Herald Times has pulled the database down but HB1068 was passed in response to their posting it.

    We've been down this road already in Hicksville (Arkansas). Put a stop to it pretty much. Thing is....how important is it for you to remain anonymous for CC? All the rest of your life is accessible to anyone. How do you wish to make the separation? You're on the map no matter what, and there's no way you can think you're not, or believe there is a way to drop out or mask who you are. Modern times=less security. Welcome to the present. If you're here...everyone knows about you or can find out who you are and what you do. Simple. Thinking you've been violated somehow is just absurd. You put yourself on the map. Without principles, we're nothing. Stick to your principles and what's right. You'll have less questions on down the road.

    Gotta love the gunshine state! I cannot believe the states who allow these lists wouldnt be sued over privacy issues or at least due to persons being robbed.

    Local newspaper tried to get the information here in Wyoming. AG said "NO". Paper sued. Before it went to court, legislation was passed stating those records are not public records. End of discussion...........
