An update on the AP request for Montana concealed carry data

The AP is refusing to comment, but it seems the language of the request has been "obtained":
"We'd like all public information included on each permit holder, including, but not limited to: last name, first name, middle, street address, city, employer, age or DOB, driver's license number, date of application," Gouras wrote in his request.
This is a significant amount of data about private citizens who did nothing more than request permission to exercise their right to self-defense. Historically, when newspapers have obtained entire databases of people with concealed carry licenses in this manner, they have published the data outright with minimum redacting for privacy.
