    WV "Secret" permits

    There is an article in this morning's Charleston Gazette. Sorry I am not good at moving things here. Long and short of it is, that the House of Delegates is looking to pass a bill keeping CCW permits info secret. They say because of domestic violence victims privacy, and their abusers not knowing. Whatever gets it done. LE would have access, but the general public would not. But one delegate, Bonnie Brown, states she does not agree with concealed permits at all, as people are allowed to carry in the open without permit.... which make no sense. She then goes on to say, she looks at those lists to know who to stay away from. What a moron. Because we all know the bad guys apply for CCW legally. For somebody who does not seem to like guns she is sure shooting herself in the foot. She is a delegate in Kanawha Co. which is the most populated county in WV and the State Capital. All WV voters and gun owners should let her know what we think. What an idiot.

    Not really any secret out there that these "legislators" are all that smart!

    Here's a link to the article: Charleston Gazette
    Brown said she doesn't like the idea of concealed weapons permits anyway. West Virginia law allows residents to carry guns unconcealed without any permission.

    "I read those lists so I know who to stay away from," she said. "This goes against the public's right to know."

    I had not read that. I will definitely let my opinion be known.

    Statements like these never cease to amaze me. Its just beyond comprehension how dumb this stuff is.

    Lord knows we all want her to be safe, we peons need not apply.

    Good luck with that, I wish we had complete privacy here

    I don't live in Kanawha, but I work there and have plenty of pro ccw friends and colleagues who do and vote. I am thinking about calling the local NRA. I'm sure they are already aware though.

    Some of these politicos are absolutely wacky - logic doesn't even fit into their thinking.

    Florida's CWFL list used to be available to the public, until an irresponsible news outlet published the entire list.

    The public backlash was so intense, they pulled the list off their website within a couple hours.

    And shortly thereafter, the Florida legislature exempted the CWFL list from public access.

    every body knows that politicians don't have opinions, they just say stuff to gain votes, also there is no way that i would carry a firearm in the open, even if it was legal. with all the shootings now a days the cops would show up before i got from my car to the front door!!

    I sent Ms Brown a e-mail.
    Would you want to be married to her.

    About time. In MN, carry permit data is private.

    If your state is not, lobby your reps to check the law.
