NY law would protect firearm owners’ privacy after controversy

From Business Insider:

In addition to placing landmark restrictions on gun ownership, the gun bill working its way through the New York legislature could give gun owners new privacy rights.
After The Journal News in Westchester, N.Y. used the Freedom of Information Act to publish a map revealing the names and addresses of registered gun owners in Westchester and Rockland counties, some politicians apparently decided it was time for change.
Part of the new gun law amends state public records laws to protect gun owners from being publicly identified, The Associated Press reported Tuesday.
