I tried a search and found nothing. (Probably not using the right terms.) If you get a CCW in California, is that kept private or are the names of permit holders a matter of public record?

It is available through a Public Records Act request. And it should be as long as we are May Issue. It is the only way we can try to keep the Sheriffs and Chiefs honest about who they issue to. Once we go Shall Issue, then it shouldn't be available.

Tango, thanks. I thought I remembered reading that some newspaper had published the names of all the CCW permitees in their area as a way of embarrassing them
