Authorities in a suburban county north of New York City said on Tuesday they will refuse to release names of local gun permit holders to a newspaper that has been publishing the identities of thousands of license-holding residents.

Putnam County Clerk Dennis Sant said he would defy a request for information about pistol permit holders from the White Plains, New York-based Journal News, which has come under criticism for publishing thousands of such identities already.

"There is the rule of law, and there is right and wrong and the Journal News is clearly wrong," Sant said in a statement. "I could not live with myself if one Putnam pistol permit holder was put in harm's way, for the sole purpose of selling newspapers."

Good news. Be sure to call Journal News advertisers, especially the car dealers and tell them to pull their advertising or face a boycott.

Dennis is a good guy fighting the good fight. He would not release the records a few years ago when this sh** bag paper wanted to do the same.

I grew up in Putnam County long, long ago. Today I’d venture close to half its population has permits. Many retired NYPD.

Boycott Journal national advertisers and cancel ANY subscription to ALL liberal elite publications. Tell them why you’re cancelling...

That’s how we fight back.

Boycott the LOCAL advertisers. Especially the car dealers. That will cause the most financial pressure.

I would like to see the Second Amendment Foundation represent some of the gun owners and take this matter to court. Gun owners who choose to carry a concealed firearm and who choose to submit to state regulations of the right, should not have to submit to this unnecessary invasion of privacy.

Imagine if the state somehow managed to justify having church-goers register with the state. Would that justification automatically justify making the records public? I don't think so.

Here in Kalifornia the records of concealed carry holders were being kept secret and this facilitated the abuse of the system by allowing sheriffs to grant permits to their donors and deny others.

Since keeping the records secret encourages corruption and keeping the records open invades privacy, it really shouldn't take the courts very long to decide that keeping the records at all is an infringement of the right.

The same people who feel totally free to publish and subject to harassment or worse gun permit holders (because they don’t like their position on the subject) fight like hell to assure that no one can know who’s had an abortion or who has AIDS.
