A Maryland judge on Thursday denied a temporary restraining order that would have prevented Maryland State Police from using outside agency employees to process a backlog of gun applications.
Maryland gun clubs and advocates are asking a judge to stop the state police from using other agency employees to process a massive backlog of gun applications — a practice they say compromises gun owners' personal information.
"I promise we won't stop until they notify the people whose data was exposed on the Internet that they need to take precautions," he said.
Mr. Shomo notes that the new security protocols highlighted by the attorney general — including the move of the data-entry system to an internal and encrypted police network — show progress but reveal how vulnerable personal information was under the old system.
