    The Rockland County NY based newspaper "The News Journal" saw fit to list the names and addresses of every gun permit owner in the tri-county area north of NYC in Westchester, Putnam and Rockland and people are pissed. The Correction Officers union is outraged and the Sheriff of Putnam County went on the air to illustrate the case of a female victim of domestic abuse who moved to Putnam County to escape a stalker and now is being threatened with calls and hongups all night as a result of the paper posting her name and address and the fact that she has a gun permit. The News Journal seems to be in a defense mode and is not taking phone calls or giving interviews.

    Former convicts have already testified to the usefulness of the ‘gun maps’...

    Burglars Hit Home of Gun Owner ID’d by Newspaper
    The home of a gun owner, whose address was published by a New York newspaper, has been burglarized and a state lawmaker said it appears the burglars may have used the newspaper’s map to target the residence.
