Great: Suburban NY Newspaper Releases Interactive Map of Where Local Gun Permit Owners Live

We guess they’re trying to expose all the bad people out there. This is just detestable.

The map indicates the addresses of all pistol permit holders in Westchester and Rockland counties. Each dot represents an individual permit holder licensed to own a handgun — a pistol or revolver. The data does not include owners of long guns — rifles or shotguns — which can be purchased without a permit. Being included in this map does not mean the individual at a specific location owns a weapon, just that they are licensed to do so.

Data for all permit categories, unrestricted carry, premises, business, employment, target and hunting, is included, but permit information is not available on an individual basis.

To create the map, The Journal News submitted Freedom of Information requests for the names and addresses of all pistol permit holders in Westchester, Rockland and Putnam. By state law, the information is public record.

On the upside, the folks in Rockland County look well protected.  Alas, now the criminals are also armed with more knowledge as to who’s not protected. Wonderful.


Needless to say, this outrageous action has the locals up in arms, so to speak.

    On the contrary, this is a nice map of who *not* to try to rob. If you’re not on this listing, you and your family are nothing more than victims waiting to be badly hurt or killed.

    No matter how you look at it, there’s going to rapidly be a lot fewer non-gun owners in suburban NY.

    Sorry but you blew that door off it’s hinges when you supported maps (and lists and registries) of “sex offenders.” If you can target one group of socially undesirable people you can just as easily target another. And yes gun owners are pretty damn unpopular now.

    So maybe next time you’ll think a little longer before you pick up the pitchforks and torches. Next time the mob may be after you.

    I wonder when these stupid libs will figger out that none of those permit holders have ever been involved in any crime or massacre of any sort, other than a few ducks, geese, rabbits etc…..

    Stupid libs….

    This is such an invasion of our privacy, but if you look at in a different way, they have just let all of the local criminals know which homes DON”T have guns. Sorry to say but this is a map that tells them WHO they can now rob or attack without being shot.
