A state like Arkansas makes it easy for ccw but require a specific course for ccw I have no problem with that
In case you missed it last month because of NY's handgun permit database 45,000+ law abiding citizens in 2 counties were labeled as targets by the Journal News
Not to mention the millions of others they put at risk by default that do not own handguns. This is the problem with Gov't having lists with law abiding citizens names and information on it ... it gets used in nefarious ways!
There is no problems with a jurisdiction that issues a permit for a set length of time and having it expire. If the person wants to renew it they can re-submit before the permit expires ... simple, and no nefarious actions can happen with said persons info
