Letter Regarding OPM Breach and Maryland Conceal Carry Permits

The following letter was sent to Governor Hogan and Assistant Attorney General Mark Bowen. The OPM breach presents a clear threat to the safety of Maryland residents who are employees, contractors, or family members thereof of the Federal Government. Any response will be posted.
Governor Hogan and Assistant Attorney General Mark Bowen, 
As I am sure you have heard by now, 21 million individuals, including Federal employees, contractors, and their significant others, have had their personal information stolen, most likely by a foreign government.
A large number of affected individuals reside in Maryland.
One of the fears shared by affected individuals is that a foreign government may attempt to use the compromised information to blackmail workers into becoming spies, with the potential to threaten them as well as their families.  See
Given this information, will Maryland do the right thing and grant conceal carry permits to affected individuals and their families, in order to protect them from this new threat? 
Thank you,
