The State House has approved a bill that would prohibit public bodies from releasing information identifying those who are licensed to carry concealed handguns. The measure is sponsored by the Oregon State Sheriffs' Association, whose president, Clatsop County Sheriff Tom Burgin, says keeping gun ownership information private is "common decency." The measure would allow disclosure only by court order; consent of the permit holder, or for the purposes of criminal justice. The House favored the bill by a 42-18 vote, and the measure now moves to the Senate.
