Editor’s note: Journal News reporter Dwight R. Worley owns a Smith & Wesson 686 .357 Magnum and has had a residence permit in New York City for that weapon since February 2011.

from the original article...

just did some digging and found that gun permits are a matter of public record in the state of NY. anyone can go search the registry and find out who's packing. so there's nothing legally to challenge here, only ethical questions... is this irresponsible journalism? i'd say so.

I agree, legally there is no problem, but it is irresponsible.

I wonder how the employees of the newspaper would feel if someone set up a website with their addresses listed, along with the tax value of their homes. That is also publicly available information. Well at least it is in North Carolina. I assume its that way in New York.

The only basis he seems to suggest for this comes from a quote from someone else:

Combined with laws that allow the purchase of rifles and shotguns without a permit, John Thompson, a program manager for Project SNUG at the Yonkers Family YMCA, said that leaves the public knowing little about the types of deadly weapons that might be right next door.

“I would love to know if someone next to me had guns. It makes me safer to know so I can deal with that,” said Thompson, whose group counsels youths against gun violence. “I might not choose to live there.”
