Fairfax, VA – -( Last week, the California Department of Justice (DOJ) Privacy Office began mailing letters like this one to certified Firearm Safety Instructors.

The letter states that on October 14, 2016, DOJ inadvertently disclosed the name, date of birth, and California Driver’s License and/or Identification Card numbers of potentially every single DOJ certified Firearm Safety Instructor in California to an unknown requestor.

DOJ allegedly discovered the breach on October 27—well over two months ago—but is just now notifying individuals.

As if this wasn’t already cause for concern, in the recently submitted “assault weapon” regulations DOJ is attempting to include a “non-liability” clause. This clause requires all individuals who voluntarily register their firearms as “assault weapons” to hold DOJ harmless for any liability for hardware, software, information, or other issues associated with the registration process.

Essentially, DOJ is requiring individuals to waive their constitutionally protected right to privacy in order to participate in their constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms!

NRA and CRPA attorneys are currently reviewing this situation as it develops and will pursue all available remedies, including potential legal action. If you or someone you know has received a letter from DOJ indicating that their personal information was improperly disclosed, please send an email to and sign-up for NRA email alerts to keep informed.

Established in 1975, the Institute for Legislative Action (ILA) is the “lobbying” arm of the National Rifle Association of America. ILA is responsible for preserving the right of all law-abiding individuals in the legislative, political, and legal arenas, to purchase, possess and use firearms for legitimate purposes as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
