Looks like we picked the wrong week to give up publishing our map of Journal News employees (OK, we never really stopped publishing it!)
Our pal, Dylan Skriloff of the Rockland County Times, broke some important news this week:
The Rockland County Times has confirmed that the Journal News daily newspaper has requested from Putnam, Rockland and Westchester Counties a complete list of gun owners who did not file “opt out” papers exempting themselves from pistol permit public records.
Dylan adds a thought-provoking coda to the article:
It is worth noting, if the Journal News compared the list of names of gun owners who did not opt out with last year’s complete files, they could deduce the gun owners who opted out to a high degree of accuracy, thus rendering the law impotent.
Get ready for Round II of the Gun Map Wars!
