RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The public would not have access to records of Virginians with permits to carry concealed handguns under legislation on its way to the governor.
Republican Delegate Dave Nutter's bill passed out of the Senate unanimously on Wednesday. It passed unopposed from the House earlier this month.
Nutter first introduced the bill last year after The Roanoke Times posted the state police database of permit holders on its Web site. Former Attorney General Bob McDonnell advised the state police to stop making the list available, but Nutter said any Circuit Court judge could overrule the opinion.
The bill died in a Senate committee last year, but sailed unopposed through the General Assembly this year.
The records still would be available to law enforcement agencies. Nonidentifying information would be available to the public.

"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
