Human nature. One only needs to look at ourselves on the issue of open carry to see it.

This will keep occurring until we get our representatives to change it to non public info.
IMO, it's a blind belief in so-called "Sunshine" policies, the idea that transparency is good. Of course, that depends on one's POV. From the perspective of those harmed by such intentional, undesirable disclosure, it's inexplicable. Can't see what the actual gain is, for the citizenry to know such information. After all, as a group, those having gone through the sieve of checks and background evaluations are far less likely to be a threat than John Q. Public.
