LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Over the objection of freedom of information advocates, Arkansas lawmakers on Tuesday approved legislation that would make secret the list of nearly 130,000 residents who have permits to carry concealed weapons.
Unlike New York’s law, Arkansas’ current Freedom of Information Act allows police to release only the names and zip codes of permit holders. That’s the result of a 2009 compromise that lawmakers approved after a previous effort to make all of the information secret.
Four additional states — Kansas, Kentucky, Oregon and South Carolina — recently enacted legislation keeping concealed weapons permits secret, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. And on Tuesday, Maine’s governor swiftly signed into law an emergency, temporary measure to keep the names of permit-holders confidential following public furor over a newspaper’s request for the information.
Maybe a cop can answer that for me, if you do a search on the license plate or license of someone will it tell if they are a ccw?
