The California Department of Justice’s 2022 Firearms Dashboard Portal went live on Monday with publicly-accessible files that include identifying information for those who have concealed carry permits. . . .
2,891 people in Los Angeles County with standard licenses also had their information compromised by the leak, though the database appears to include some duplicate entries as well.
What would be the point of having this information on a public website? Why not just provide a map showing which California homeowners have guns and which don’t so criminals don’t needlessly endanger themselves by invading an armed residence?
