County to Appeal Decision on Gun Records – Putnam County officials intend to fight on after a state judge ruled that the county must divulge the names of handgun owners who declined to “opt out” of public disclosure under New York’s 2013 gun control law.  In a decision handed down March 5, State Supreme Court Justice Robert Neary, based in Westchester County, ruled in favor of The Journal News newspaper and its corporate parent, Gannett Satellite Information Network, Inc., against Putnam County, whose county clerk, Dennis Sant, refused to provide the newspaper with information on registered pistol owners.
