BATON ROUGE - Journalists, bloggers or anyone else will be prohibited from publicly identifying applicants for concealed handgun permits in Louisiana.

The bill will make it a misdemeanor to release or publish the names or addresses of permit owners and will carry a $10,000 fine and up to six months in jail.
