NASHVILLE — Information contained in handgun permit applications and renewals would be confidential under a bill moving in the Legislature.

The measure sponsored by Senate Republican leader Mark Norris of Collierville unanimously passed the Senate Judiciary Committee today.

Under current law, Norris said only a person’s driver’s license is confidential. But his bill would protect other personal information, such as an individual’s address and phone number.

Violators of the legislation would be charged with a felony.

The companion bill is scheduled for a House subcommittee on Wednesday.
