Putnam County clerk refuses to release names of gun owners to the paper who published names of gun owners on a map.
Megan Kelly is going to interview him. Discussing now after the clerk gave a news conference stating he may be breaking the law by not releasing names; but that it was wrong to to so and he was there to protect the people of Putnam County. His first name is Dennis; but didn’t catch last name. Trying to work and catch this at the same time.
We need to stand by our own.
Publish the names, addresses, telephone numbers, and any other public information (criminal records, bankruptcy, lawsuits, divorce) about the publishers and staff instead.
How about someone at that newspaper explain exactly what the purpose of this is. Don’t be shy now, go ahead an let your inner-commie bastard step right up.
Funny part is that stories like this actually INSPIRE some of us to buy more guns and ammo!
It doesn’t matter if they release info....The one’s to be concerned with are those who already have the info.
Putnam County where? Ohio, New York, Illinois, California?
Publish the names and address of everyone who has had an abortion. People have a right to know who has exercised their 4th Amendment rights too...
I wonder too.
I don’t know why I continue to be astounded by the left. THEY demand privacy on everything else, but not something like this. This paper deserves to be deluged with complaints about this. The County Clerk deserves praise for standing up.
How about publishing all the names of those on Welfare, that have HIV or bounced a check?
One receives funds from Taxpayers, one is a potenial health threat and the other is a criminal....
Seeing as how the released info was done in a newspaper from Westchester County NY, would kind of figure this Putnam County is also in NY, as it is in the same ‘general area’ of Southern Tier of NY.
Sorry, just coming in on Fox:
Officials in Putnam County say they will reject a newspaper’s (The Journal News - published names on map of gun owners in Weschester and Rockland County)request to release the names and addresses of residents with pistol permits.
County Clerk Dennis Sant said officials were meeting Wednesday to discuss legal options. He states that The Journal may have the legal right; but he thinks it’s wrong and doesn’t want to be responsible for someone in Putnam County being harmed by releasing the info.
Putnam County NY.
This is a brave man.
Convictions are useless unless you stand up for them.
....now we’re going to get stories about the evil government violating Freedom of Press....
I have heard on local radio stations that Putnam County will be sued and fined for every day they do not comply with the freedom of information request.
It just seems that we can’t win any more with anything.
