Today on our show we spoke with Rep. Kim Thatcher (R) Keizer, about House Bill 2727 which would allow only county sheriffs to reveal the personal information of those with concealed weapons permits. She has fought very hard for gun owner's rights and now the Eugene Register Guard has challenged the bill before it has even gotten out of the Legislature.
This past week, reporter, Jack Moran, requested ALL permit holder's private records for a story he would run.
The Lane County Sheriff: Russel Burger said "NO".
Here is a copy of his letter to the reporter:
Dear Mr. Moran: I am in receipt of your email requesting public records, specifically a list of all concealed handgun license holders in Lane County. We have the records you are requesting.
PLEASE contact your State senators and demand that they follow the Oregon House in protecting us from these fishing expeditions and intrusions which, while doing nothing to prevent crime, punish those who seek to comply with the law.
