CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Nevada law enforcement officials say they will support efforts in the Legislature to make the names of people who have concealed weapons permits confidential.
During a meeting Thursday in Carson City of the Nevada Sheriffs and Chiefs Association, the Reno Gazette-Journal reports executive director Frank Adams urged permit holders to contact their legislators.
The Nevada Supreme Court ruled in June that while individual applications for permits are confidential, the names of permit holders are public record.
The ruling was in responds to a Gazette-Journal request for information about concealed weapons permits involving Gov. Jim Gibbons. The Republican governor had his permit revoked in 2009 because he had not been certified with all the weapons listed on his certificate.
