Newspaper Takes Down Map of Gun Permit Holders [View all]

Source: New York Times

A newspaper has taken down an interactive online map of handgun permit holders in two New York counties that had drawn nationwide anger and prompted threats against its staff, the publisher said in a statement on Friday.

The decision by the paper, The Journal News, to remove the map from its Web site at 5 p.m. came in response to the passage of the state’s sweeping gun law this week, which included a provision limiting access to previously public information about gun permit holders.

“While the new law does not require us to remove the data, we believe that doing so complies with its spirit,” Janet Hasson, the newspaper’s publisher, said in a statement.

Legislators pushed to add the measure to the new state law, which also restricts ownership of certain weapons, in response to the paper’s publication after an outcry from gun rights advocates and some law enforcement groups.
