This is very upsetting news......regardless of where you stand in the gun debate..
A local newspaper in the suburbs of New York City, The Journal News, has published the addresses of every gun owner (or people licensed to own a handgun) in Westchester and Rockland Counties. The newspaper says they will publish the addresses of gun permit holders in Putnam County too.
This is a problem because:
If I have a permit to own a handgun, I don't want some random stranger to know. Yes, the police and law enforcement have the right to know, but not some stranger.
If I don't have any guns or weapons, I would be very afraid if I live in Westchester or Rockland County because now criminals know the people who are less likely to be armed (i.e. the ones without a gun permit), so I would be an easier target.
This was a big mistake by the newspaper to do this..........
FPNY, aren't you from Westchester County? What do you think about this?
