15. Not even close...

 

Massachusetts...

The commissioner of the department of criminal justice information services, the department of criminal justice information services and its agents, servants, and attorneys including the keeper of the records of the firearms records bureau of said department, or any licensing authority, as defined by chapter one hundred and forty shall not disclose any records divulging or tending to divulge the names and addresses of persons who own or possess firearms, rifles, shotguns, machine guns and ammunition therefor, as defined in said chapter one hundred and forty and names and addresses of persons licensed to carry and/or possess the same to any person, firm, corporation, entity or agency except criminal justice agencies as defined in chapter six and except to the extent such information relates solely to the person making the request and is necessary to the official interests of the entity making the request.

The California disclosure law does allow a person to inquire if a particular individual has a registered firearm (they need a name first)

Form your request by identifying that you wish to know if someone has a registered gun by providing your name and contact information as well as the name and home address of the person in question.

There's nothing there that allows a person/entity access to the database of registered firearms owners (here's the list of names of people with registered firearms).

See the difference?

Perhaps CA law does allow disclosure of the list of registered firearms owners, without having to provide a name, however... it's not mentioned in your link).

I would like to know is if someone were to inquire if a particular individual is a registered firearms owner, is that person notified that an inquiry was made, and by whom?

If not... they should be.
