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.
Not content to stay with the obscene caricatures noted here the Media Party is now resorting to public shaming, as well as providing break-and-enter artists with a shopping list.
Maybe the NRA should publish a map of every single son of a bitch who works for Gannett Newspapers. That would be entirely fair, I think. And the overlap of concealed weapon permit holders with Gannett employee could be marked with Drudge's flashing cop light.
