Let’s Not Ignore or Forget our State Attorney General:
In case you have forgotten, because of the job of surviving in this economy, there will be an election in November for all of our federal, state and county officials. There is real discussion about the efficiency of many of our state officials. Here is one glaring example.
The California Department of Justice, headed by Attorney General Rob Bonta, on June 29th acknowledged that the agency wrongly made public the personal information of perhaps hundreds of thousands of gun owners in up to six state-operated databases.
Names, birth dates, gender, race, driver’s license numbers, addresses and criminal histories were exposed for people who were granted or denied permits to carry concealed weapons between 2011 and 2021. Social Security numbers and financial information were not disclosed.
Additional Information Exposed on Various Databases
Assault Weapon Registry Handguns Certified for Sale Dealer Record of Sale
Firearm Certificate Safety and Gun Violence Restraining Order
Apparently, officials were investigating the extent to which personal information was exposed in the databases.
One of the requirements of any job is to perform the duties of the position correctly. Some mistakes should just not happen. They can be life threatening for members of the public.
Remember: There is a good man running for Attorney General. Nathan Hochman
