DOJ Introduces New Regulations with “Privacy Notices” to Firearm Forms

The California Department of Justice has announced a new set of proposed regulations, according to the National Rifle Institution.

The DOJ made its announcement on Monday to require adding “privacy notices” to certain firearm-related formers. Each “privacy notice” contains information on how the DOJ will collect, use and potentially disclose an individual’s personal information in the submitted form, the NRA reported.

In December 2016, the DOJ’s Privacy Office began mailing letters to certified Firearm Safety Instructors informing them the DOJ inadvertently disclosed their name, date of birth and California Driver’s License and/or Identification Card numbers to an unknown third party. It was later discovered that the unknown party was a reporter for Southern California Public Radio.

Per the NRA, “in response to DOJ’s incompetence, and otherwise lack of respect for the personal information of thousands of Firearm Safety Instructors, the NRA, and CRPA attorneys provided members with comprehensive information on what steps to take to protect their privacy.”

The new forms will require the following:

The DOJ will hold a public hearing to receive comments from the public regarding the proposed changes to the forms. The hearing will take place on Sept. 12, from 1-3 p.m. at the Resources Building Auditorium, located at 1416 9th Street, Sacramento, California 95814.

Residents can still submit written comments no later than 5 p.m. on September 12, 2017 to the following person:
