Common Sense Prevails: Sheriff Denies Request to Release List of Legal Gun Owners

Update to this story…

Onondaga County Sheriff Kevin Walsh will officially deny a FOIL request for a list of 60,000 pistol permit holders, made by a company that compiles and sells such data.


The denial letter to online data seller will be mailed this morning, Walsh said. The company, which compiles and sells lists of hunters, had asked for the names and addresses in a Freedom of Information Law request last month.

Walsh said he denied the request on two grounds:

— plans to package and sell the data for solicitation purposes.

— The sheriff’s department has not yet processed approximately 15,000 requests from permit holders to keep their information private.

While the company pinky-swore that would never use the data for solicitation purposes, Walsh says their own website information says otherwise.  Actually, his response to their written promise was, “liar, liar, pants on fire.”

No, I’m not kidding.
