I don't associate "excellent long-term planning skills" with crooks.
Yeah. Pretty likely this was retaliation.
This is just one more proven reason why the .gov should not be involved with your exercise of your rights.
.gov is not our friend
I note that for the purposes of this thread, the term "bad guys" could mean gangbangers, or the CA DOJ. Potato, potahto.
Oh I'm smelling what your stepping in.
Right on, man.

Have at it, crooks, merchants, and health insurance providers. Now nobody has to ask me for that info any more.
"Security !" Ha! I laugh at the joke, ha-ha.
Now they no longer think they need to make laws before publishing gun records for the public to see.
Actually the people that have a conceal carry permit are much less likely to commit a crime with a gun than the rest of the public.
Can't see it going over to publish people private ownership of anything. That could be an incentive for criminals to figure out who has what, and if you happen to have a substantial collection of say Winchester collectibles, a criminal might think you are likely to have a nice collection of other valuables too, jewelry, gold bars, high end electronics. It just isn't any of anyone's business.
IMHO half the home security in the country, is just the notion that the homeowner could have a gun and nobody knows who does or who doesn't. If there was a list of high end homes that did not have a firearm, and that list was reliable .. boy, you sure just put a target on those homes for break ins.
The constitution only has one sentence to say we have the right to keep and bear arms. It's not the place to write out details such as permits and restrictions. It doesn't forbid permits nor does it make them mandatory.
The Canadian gun ownership records system was found to be not worth the effort and expense. Maybe it is time to find out how efficient and effective the CA record system has been in preventing or punishing crime. Where is the FOIA guy?
I don't see anyway this could be anything but intentional.
However, that information distribution was as much of an accident as one getting fat, eating nothing but fast food or coffee being hot.
Good luck to any that file one, they are going to need it for any chance at recovering damages.
This needs to be investigated at the federal level and every one involved needs to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
However, see the California Constitution, Article I, Section 1 (emphasis added):
It'll be interesting to see what sort of pushback the AG gets in court, if any.
I'll add just a little emphasis to your quote....
It doesn't detail freedom of speech either, yet that is considered holy in any way people want to frame it. We just had a rather abstract ruling concerning religious freedom. Permission or restriction power equates to infringement. I get that rights can be regulated as to eligibility, but since EVERYTHING gets corrupted, that power quickly evolves into infringement too. There is a long, dirty history of that in American history. We should face that rights may not prevail when their exercise is inconvenient to a liberal government.
That allows for someone to be targeted for political reasons, theft, just any number of things.

Me thinks they may have shut it down already…but I wouldn’t hold my breath.
