NY County to Condemn Newspaper for Gun Permit Map

Resolution demands removal


When the Rockland County Legislature convenes next week, its agenda includes three gun-related measures, including a resolution condemning The Journal News for publishing a controversial map of handgun-permit holders.

The board's Public Safety Committee voted 5-1 Tuesday on a resolution "condemning" The Journal News for "exercising poor judgment in its decision to create an interactive website making the names and addresses of all lawful pistol permit holders in Rockland and Westchester counties readily available to members of the public."
