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?
