Government COMPROMISES Gun Owners – They Leaked Private Data!
(UnitedVoice.com) – On Monday, June 27, California Attorney General Rob Bonta (D) announced the state Department of Justice’s new Firearms Dashboard Portal launched. To say it went poorly would diminish the horrendous mistake that happened next.
Visitors noticed something peculiar when the portal went live: the information for thousands of gun owners was public. According to the Second Amendment-supporting website The Reload, data for 2,891 people in Los Angeles County with a standard firearm license was exposed, as was the personal info about 244 judge permits, 420 reserve officers, and 63 people who have permission to carry weapons at their job. Founder of The Reload, Stephen Gutowski, posted about it on Twitter saying other people reported the assault weapons registry and dealer sales were also accessible to the public.
California appears to have leaked the names, addresses, and ages of every person in the state who holds a concealed carry permit. That includes judges, cops, and regular civilians.
I was able to review the Los Angeles data and it's extensive. https://t.co/uiooUyFv5A

US Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) provided Gutowski with a statement, calling the incident a “shocking betrayal of trust by state officials, whether an act of corruption or incompetence.” He went on to say lawmakers need to get to the bottom of what happened and ensure gun owners are protected.
The attorney general’s office told The Reload it’s investigating the leak of personal information, calling it “unacceptable” and promising to “swiftly address” the situation.
Do you think the incident was a mistake or intentional?
