Won’t veto secret-gun-list law, Beebe says

Gov. Mike Beebe said Thursday that he will not veto Senate Bill 131, which makes secret all personal information of concealed-carry permit holders in the state.

Beebe had previously opposed the bill.

The legislation shrouds the names of about 130,000 people in Arkansas who are permitted to carry concealed handguns. State law currently allows the state to release the names and ZIP codes of permit holders.

In a statement, Beebe cited overwhelming support in both state Legislature chambers and a lack of constitutional concerns in his decision to let the bill pass into law without his signature Monday.

Thank you, governor. I appreciate your position on the FOI law, but I also appreciate your decision on the matter of making CCW permit holders public. We are not public officials, and no good could come from doing so.

That weasel won't even put his signature on a very good piece of legislation.
I think he must have drunk the "Obama-aid".
Makes me ashamed to admit I ever lived in the same town as "weasel"

This will be a moot point when open carry is implemented.
