Gun Owner Privacy Bill

Updated: Thursday, February 21 2013, 09:41 PM EST

A bill is pending in Raleigh to keep gun owners' information private. Senate Bill 28 would require a court order for gun permit information to be released.

It comes in the wake of the publication of gun owners' information in the northeast by several newspapers in the wake of the Sandy Hook shootings.

Some police officials say they support the bill because it could make gun owners a target for people trying to steal weapons.

The Henderson County Sheriff's Office is also supporting Senate Bill 28. County commissioners also passed a resolution in Henderson County that wants gun permit records to become private.
