An interesting article on the "leaking" of personal information. From the article, and note the numbers analyzed were just from LA county:

 

"The Reload reviewed a copy of the Los Angeles County database and found 244 judge permits listed in the database. The files included the home addresses, full names, and dates of birth for all of them. The same was true for seven custodial officers, 63 people with a place of employment permit, and 420 reserve officers."

 

"2,891 people in Los Angeles County with standard licenses also had their information compromised by the leak, though the database appears to include some duplicate entries as well."

 

Lets hope that the Illinois State Police will keep its citizens information a little more "closer to the vest".

Hope does NOT have a DARN thing to do with it!!!

 

 

The libune (disguised, hiding behind "AP") tried to get (through Lisa Madigan) a list of all Illinois FOID's to dox us all.

 

One legislative season ('12?  '13?  '14?) was derailed as we scrambled to fix that in Illinois Law.

ISRA sued Madigan and ISP to prevent the release of the info.

 

Someone at AP had to file the FIOA for the FOID info.

John O'Connor stood at the back of the room at IGOLD that same year. 

We let him know over the loudspeaker that we knew he was there.

(He was the one doing the filing and reporting on it.)

But we didn't actually point him out to the people.

LA Times

LA Times said:

A massive leak of personal information from a California state database for permits to carry concealed weapons is larger than initially reported, officials said Wednesday.

...

On Wednesday, the California Department of Justice said the leak was more extensive, affecting not only current permit holders but anybody who was granted or denied a permit to carry a concealed weapon between 2011 and 2021.

...

The information included names, dates of birth, gender, race, driver's license numbers, addresses and criminal histories, according to the statement. Social Security numbers and financial information were not exposed.

 

In addition to information from the concealed-carry permit applications, data on the Assault Weapon Registry, Handguns Certified for Sale, Dealer Record of Sale, Firearm Safety Certificate and Gun Violence Restraining Order dashboards were "also impacted," Bonta's office said, but authorities are investigating whether any personally identifiable information was exposed from those dashboards.

...

Justice Department officials said the data were exposed for less than 24 hours.

 

The department had posted updates to the portal Monday afternoon and was later made aware "of a disclosure of personal information that was accessible in a spreadsheet on the portal," the agency's statement said. Officials removed the information from public view and shut down the firearms dashboard Tuesday morning.

...

It contained information from the last decade on dealer records of sales, gun violence restraining orders, concealed-carry weapons permits, firearms safety certificates, assault weapons and a roster of certified handguns, according to a statement by Bonta's office.

...

The agency will provide credit monitoring services for those whose data were exposed by the leak and will directly contact those individuals to provide instructions on how to sign up.

 

LOL, credit monitoring services, all better now ...

IMO everytime they say that it's nothing but an insult to injury, I know a few people that had their identity stolen, all the credit monitoring did was tell them what they already knew, their identity was stolen and being exploited and caused them nothing but a hassle to use their own identity.
