    Oregon lawmakers consider concealed gun disclosure
    Print Story Published: 6:10 am ShareThisUpdated: 7:17 amSALEM, Ore. (AP) — An Oregon Senate Committee is set to consider legislation to prohibit government agencies from disclosing the names of people with permits to carry concealed weapons.

    The Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to review the legislation on Thursday.

    The bill is sponsored by Republican Sen. Doug Whitsett of Klamath Falls. It stems from a dispute between the Medford Mail Tribune and the Jackson County Sheriff after the newspaper filed a public records request for the database of people who have applied to carry concealed weapons.

    The state Court of Appeals has ruled that the database is a public record subject to disclosure.
