Californians who applied for concealed carry permits had their personal information leaked this week and we are learning the leak was larger than initially reported. Here’s some background:
On Monday, the state launched the 2022 Firearms Dashboard Portal, while suggesting its aim is to improve transparency and information sharing for gun-related data.
Then on Tuesday, Fresno County Sheriff’s Office said this new portal was breached, which resulted in the leak of personal information of concealed-carry permit holders.
Then on Wednesday, we leaned the breach was even bigger. It included anyone who applied for a concealed carry permit, approved or denied, from 2011 to 20-21.
Fresno County Sheriff, Margaret Mims joined OAN’s Alicia Summers to discuss the risks.
