Bill to Close Handgun Records Likely Dead

The Associated Press

NASHVILLE (AP) — A proposal to close access to the names of people who hold state-issued permits to carry loaded handguns has likely failed this session.

The measure sponsored by Republican Sen. Dewayne Bunch of Cleveland was removed from consideration in the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday after an amendment was added that essentially rewrote the bill.

The original proposal would have allowed information to be released on revoked permits. But the new version would close all material, except in a few instances that included law enforcement use and child support purposes.

The companion bill is waiting to be scheduled for a full House vote.

A similar bill, which is opposed by advocates for open government, passed the House last year but failed in the Senate.
