Local Paper Continues to Press for Gun Owner Records

Surprised, though happy, to see this today.  I wrote a good deal about this months ago when my mediocre local newspaper the Journal-News here just north of NYC, a Gannett outlet, published the names of registered gun owners in my county, just after Sandy Hook.  You may have heard about the storm of criticism they received, not for counting the numbers or mapping but actually supply names and addresses.  They backed off but continued to press another county, Putnam, for the records, promising not to print names this time.  Still they were refused.

I presumed they've given up, but no, they continue to seek the records--and now suiing over it.
