    In reading through the Florida Statutes (I review them from time to time when something piques my attention), I came to the section regarding the confidentiality of the personal data of carry licensees. The law protects such data, but there is a clause stating that this section will "sunset" 02 October of this year. Does anyone know if any measures have been proposed to extend the section period of force?

    Edit: I'm adding here the statute section in question. Note the last part (subsection 3)

    SeanP, you might get in under the wire, but I imagine if the data does become "releasable", it would apply to all license-holders, not just those licensed after that date.

    That being the case, when I had gone to work for an internet company here in FL. About 10 years ago, they called me in to HRS and to my suprise asked me why I thought it necessary to have a carry permit. I cut the guy right off, he was a nasty sob. I told him it was my right and since the state has no problem issuing it to me, "actually 2 states" since I had just moved from NYC, and just had my FL ccw, for 6-12 months, it was none of his business. So obviouslly they ran security checks on every new hire. I was surprised he was able to obtain this info so easily, now I don't remember what disclosures they originally aske us to sign, but I am sure none said anythingg to do with guns. It may have fallen under General Info. I was then told on my way out of his office, that I could not keep a gun in my car either.
    I don't like bullies, and when he said they would search my car at will on occasion. I told him that since this company did not own the parking lot past the first 3 lanes, I knew that because I owned a gym with the same rules in the same zip. So I continued, Should you break into my vechicle when it's not on your property, I will sue you personally, along with this company, "which at that point I knew I was not going to work for", but it would be on my terms. I offered to call the police if he would like to ask them. He turned red, and started screaming about getting back to me after he spoke to "legal", he never did.
    Some people just are morons and some have power to intimidate, or at least try to.

    I cant speak for 10 years ago. But as of now i believe its illegal for a company to prevent you from carrying in your car. Unless you work for one of the stated jobs, such as for the county or a school. Ect.

    As for the OP. I sure hope that this isse gets resolved. I dont like the thought ofbit being public info.

    The information may well not have been protected that long ago. However, it is now, and it appears it will remain that way until at least 02 October of 2016. From what I gather, the protection was re-enacted this past legislative session, as HB7161. The Open Government Sunset Review Act calls for it to be reviewed every five years.
