[QUOTE=peter nap;2016436]When everyone started screaming bloody murder about CHP information, I said to be careful what you wished for AND I SAID....There's always a way to get it.
A conservative Virginia lawmaker is proposing a solution to a potential bureaucratic nightmare created after lawmakers passed legislation this year to keep private the identities of people seeking concealed weapons permits.

Was 2008 the year that the Virginia CWP became the CHP? Actually, it matters not -- it makes no difference whether a citizen held a CWP or obtained a CHP once that became available. The law is the law and it specifically says that this information may not be revealed. Shedding crocodile tears here for the 'burden' that this law places on the Courts' clerks. And, with respect, Ms. McQuigg, I don't care how "hard" it may be for people to discover old records -- an enterprising snoop, government or otherwise, will find them.
Follow the law.
