Concealed handgun permits; access to permittee information. Protects from public disclosure permittee names and descriptive information held by the Department of State Police for purposes of entry into the Virginia Criminal Information Network. However, the information would still be available to law-enforcement agencies, officers, and agents in the course of law-enforcement duties, and nonidentifying statistical information would be available to the general public. The bill also requires a circuit court to withhold from public disclosure additional personal identifying information about the applicant, if the applicant has requested on the permit application that such information be withheld. The bill directs the Department of State Police to revise the application forms to notify the applicant of the right to request that information be withheld, and to develop procedures for current permit holders to request that information be withheld from public disclosure.
