“Current law allows anybody to purchase the state’s full permit database for $32,” McClatchy-Tribune Information Services reported.
“It includes a permit holder‘s race, height, hair color, eye color and more.” In response, three state lawmakers recently introduced bills that would make the dissemination of the information illegal.
“To protect the safety of gun owners and non-gun owners, it is better to have this information available only to law enforcement,” said Rep. Mike Murphy (R-Indianapolis), who submitted a bill to block access to permit holder data.
Added State Senator Greg Walker (R-Columbus), “The list has intimidated some of the people whose names could be on it. It puts them at risk of predators who are looking for a source of handguns.” The various bills should see action in the near future.
