Suburban NY newspaper posts interactive map of area handgun permit holders
When the Journal News of White Plains NY posted an interactive map, including names and addresses, of registered handgun owners in three local counties, they should not have been surprised at the backlash. Somewhat lost in the uproar was how they obtained the data. It was not on any government website. They filed Freedom Of Information requests with the county clerks' offices. The county officials seemed only too happy to comply since the map was published only 4 days after the Newtown shootings, which were the "inspiration" for the map. And presumably the data was supplied in easy manipulated digital form allowing rapid compilation of the map. I wonder how many county clerk's offices in "red states" would be so unusually helpful.

I think this has been covered a few times. It turns out they broke the law, but will never be prosecuted. However, gun owners from around the globe are getting revenge, after someone found and posted phone #'s , addresses, and facebooks pages of the idiots who work at the newspaper.

I wonder this

If my name was not on the list and was victim of home invasion, could the paper be charged as an accessory to the crime? In other words, they told the criminal I do not have a gun and could not defend myself, so go ahead and break in.
