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 non-identifying statistical information would be available to the general public. In addition, the State Police would be required to furnish, at a reasonable cost, a list of permit holders and their mailing addresses to nonprofit firearms and hunting educational and issue advocacy groups, but only for the purpose of education and advocacy.
