This week, California Attorney General Rob Bonta launched the state’s Firearms Dashboard Portal that included the date of birth, full name, and address of EVERY Concealed Carry Weapons (CCW) permit holder in the state.
They claim it was a mistake. Yeah, right.
"“This public site allows access to certain information, however, personal information of concealed carry weapon permit holders is not supposed to be visible,” the Sheriff’s Office said in a statement. “This includes, but is not limited to a person’s name, age, address, Criminal Identification Index number and license type (Standard, Judicial, Reserve and Custodial).”
The breach affects all concealed weapons permit holders in California, the Sheriff’s Office said.
Justice Department officials pulled down the dashboard site along with all related links after learning of the breach, but it is possible that some private information was posted elsewhere online.
“It is unknown exactly how much time the information was accessible,” the Sheriff’s Office said."
