Indiana Bills Filed to Protect CCW Permit Data
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- State lawmakers submitted a series of bills this week to protect the privacy of Hoosiers who hold gun permits.
The proposed laws would prohibit the Indiana State Police from publicly releasing the names, home addresses and other identifying information about permit holders.
Two of the bills bars all non-law enforcement sources from accessing the data.
Current law allows anybody to purchase the state's full permit database for $32. It includes a permit holder's race, height, hair color, eye color and more.
GunReports.com reported last week that the The Herald-Times newspaper had published parts of the state's permit database, raising privacy concerns for permitholders.
