Westchester County Exec Makes Formal Request to Journal News: Take Down Gun Map

ShareThis

Following up on previous public statements, Westchester County Executive Robert P. Astorino today made a formal request to the publisher of the Journal News, Janet Hasson, that she take down the interactive map on the newspaper’s website that identifies law abiding citizens who own guns and also lists their home addresses. In his letter (attached) Astorino states that the map “demonized individuals who did nothing wrong, violated their privacy and potentially put them and their families…in harm’s way.” Astorino also states that his request to take down the map is “based on public safety concerns and basic common sense.”
