    How the heck did a newspaper get this info??

    NY newspaper releases names and addresses of ccw permit holders in Westchester and Rockland counties.

    http://www.lohud.com/interactive/art...nclick_check=1

    How the heck did they get access to this info from the NY State.gov?

    Is a class action lawsuit possible... does the permit holder have an expectation of and the state a responsibility to keeping this info private?

    Yeah, the laws concerning this varies state to state. NY laws apparently allow it.

    Saw that today also! i would be furious too. This makes people potential targets for thugs looking specifically for firearms. Would the liberal jerks post the names of people that deal in diamonds and precious metals? I don't see it any differently, guns or diamonds. sad day for NY gunowners....look closely, its a detailed name/address
    Gotta remember that Cuomo is there, and Bloomberg in NYC...so people's rights are doomed as is. throw in a Shumer and its the lefty's wetdream.

    If they want to do that, then all the names and addresses and personal family details of the "journalists" need to be published, as well as those of all the legislators who are in favor of this nonsense...

    The Roanoke (VA) Times published something like this some years ago for "Sunshine week". They quickly removed it when the names, addresses, home phone numbers, and family home photos were made public as well. IIRC, the article was written by one Christian Trejbal, for those who wish to research it. I believe it was also done with the Cleveland (OH) Plain Dealer when they tried a similar tactic.

    Not only does it put the names of gun owners out for possible robbery, it also tends to publish the names and locations of people in witness protection and people hiding out from abusive ex- or soon-to-be-ex-spouses.

    Bad news all around.
