Can Any LTC Info Be Public?

I’m very much against an individual’s name, address, or any other part of carry licenses that identify an individual being a matter of public record, but some info I think is good to have as public record. For instance:

  1. Number of licenses issued by an authority
  2. Number of licenses revoked by authority
  3. Aggregated demographic info of license holders
  4. Number of licenses denied
  5. Crimes committed by license holders

I think all these things serve a legitimate public interest and so I have no problem with them being public. It’s mostly a matter of making sure people with guns that could be stolen, or people hiding from violent ex’s, who might be the reason they sought a license to carry in the first place, aren’t getting their information published in newspapers so the bad guys know exactly where to find them.
