March 4, 2013 - Conceal Carry Privacy Signed into Law
Statement from Senator Will Longwitz on the Signing of Conceal Carry Privacy Bill:
"Honest, gun-owning Mississippians can breathe a sigh of relief with the signing of this bill into law. We have now joined 31 other states in protecting gun owner privacy. Law enforcement still has access to the information, and the media can get a court order with good cause. Before now, anybody could get access to conceal-carry records for any reason. We've seen what a needless breach of privacy occurred when a New York newspaper published the personal information of permit holders. Now that won’t happen here. Mississippi gun owners are safer and have more privacy today due to the leadership of Governor Phil Bryant, Lt. Governor Tate Reeves, House Speaker Philip Gunn, Chairman Mark Baker and many other members of the Legislature working together as a team."
