Washington County Sheriff Rob Gordon is warning thousands of concealed handgun license holders that their names could be made public unless they request anonymity.

On Friday, Nov. 7, Gordon began rallying about 10,000 people in the county who hold the licenses to take action ahead of a possible Court of Appeals decision that could force agencies to disclose their identities. In the sheriff’s office online newsletter, Gordon asked permit holders to tell the department they wanted their personal information to be kept secret.
By Monday morning, about 470 people had responded to Gordon’s request, checking an online box with the message: “I want my concealed handgun license information to be kept confidential and to be protected from release to the public.”
