PRINCE GEORGE COUNTY, VA WWBT -The Republican Party of Virginia has sent letters to circuit courts across the Commonwealth asking for the personal information of concealed weapons permit holders.The party wants the information in order to send campaign materials to like-minded voters.

However, at least one GOP supporter is crying foul.Joseph Waymack heard about the request while at work at the Hopewell Commonwealths Attorneys Office Friday morning. He immediately sent a competing letter to the Prince George Circuit Court. Waymack lives in Prince George and has his concealed weapons permit through the circuit court there.

Waymack also sent a letter to the Republican Party of Virginia asking them to rescind their request.”To data mine hundreds of thousands of Virginians personal information is just reprehensible,” said Waymack.Whats more, the request comes less than a month before a Republican-backed bill banning that information from getting out becomes law.
