Aside from the obvious indecency of their publishing people's personal info, the situation points out the need to force government to have privacy policies to protect personal info. It should not be a matter of public record when you are forced to put down your home address in order to gain a permit. I think in my state the DMV records are not searchable by the public so that your info and address are not accessible. I wonder if there are known ways to shield your personal info in when dealing with the gov't.
