    appeared in the Bend Bulletin newspaper this morning. :)

    Pass it on if you'd like.

    "Currently and several times in the past, personal information about concealed handgun license (CHL) holders has been requested by the press and other non-law enforcement agencies. Just as driver’s license information is restricted by ORS 802.177, so should CHL holder information. I submit the following addition to ORS 166.291 to be considered in the next legislative session:

    (5) Prohibition on release of personal information from CHL records. No law enforcement agency, nor any officer, employee or contractor of a law enforcement agency nor any other State agency may knowingly disclose or otherwise make available to any person personal information about an individual that is obtained by the agency in connection with a concealed handgun license. Said release of CHL personal information shall be considered a violation of ORS 162.415: Official misconduct in the first degree."

    Well done, Bend. Your letter was clear to the point and short enough to be published.

    I recieved this today.

    Gene Whisnant
    State Representative
    District 53

    Dear Mr. Bend

    I am writing you in the effort to thank you for suggesting that our State Legislature take action to protect the privacy of those who have a permit to carry a concealed handgun.
    .
    .
    .
    To address this issue, I am going to introduce a bill this Legislative session making personal information about concealed weapon holders unavailable for public use.
    .
    .

    Sincerely,
    Gene Whisnant.

    Well done! I think Rep. Whisnant deserves some love, so I e-mailed him this morning:
