- PERSONAL INFORMATION: On June 27, 2022, Bonta announced the release of the "2022 Firearms Dashboard Portal" by the California Department of Justice. The website, created because "Transparency is key to increasing public trust between law enforcement and the communities we serve" erroneously made public (for 12 hours) unredacted information including the name, gender, race, drivers license number, and home address of every Californians who had received permits to concealed carry firearms since 2010 (a total of about 192,000 people). This was more than an exposure of data, it was a breach of trust that falls far short of my expectations and the expectations Californians have of our department,” said Bonta.
