The New York Journal News, a Gannett owned paper, published the names and home addresses of everyone who holds a handgun permit in a three county area of New York. The newspaper even posted a map online and encouraged readers to see if their neighbor was a permit holder.

Gun owners in New York should submit complaints to the following people:

“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.

Putnam is still putting together its records and could not immediately provide any data. The map will be updated when that data is released.

WESTCHESTER COUNTY

This map shows pistol permits registered with the Westchester County Clerk’s Office. Residents are required to renew the permit every five years. Zoom in and out for more information and click on a dot to see details of a permit.”

“ROCKLAND COUNTY

Parent company of The Journal News Gannett—–CEO Gracia C Martore 728 Springvale Rd Great Falls, VA 22066 (703) 759 5954


This map shows pistol permits registered in Rockland County, which are issued for life and do not need to be renewed. Zoom in and out for more information and click on a dot to see details of a permit. Rockland County splits permit holders into two categories:

Active (blue): Permit holders that have purchased a firearm or updated the information on a permit in the past five years.

Historic (purple): Permit holders with no activity in the past five years. Permit holders who have died or moved out of the area may not have updated their permit records, so some locations marked with a purple dot may not represent a current permit holder.”
