Inadequate Oversight” Study Finds
Wednesday, November 30, 2022
Today, the California Department of Justice announced an independent study was
completed regarding the recent data leak of gun owner information. The study
found that while the leak was not intentional, it was "due to a number of
deficiencies within DOJ including lack of training, expertise, and professional
rigor; insufficient documentation, policies, and procedures; and inadequate
oversight" impacting more than 190,000 gun owners. To read the CA DOJ’s full
