Sheriff: I won’t release names under SAFE Act

Cayuga County’s Sheriff says he has no intention of releasing names and addresses of pistol permit holders as required under New York’s new gun law.

David Gould tells Syracuse Post-Standard that the law’s requirement intruded on law-abiding gun owners’ privacy. He said that unless he is ordered to by a court, he will not release those names and addresses.

The gun control law states that the name and address of a pistol permit holder “shall be a public record” unless the holder files an opt-out form with the county sheriff’s office.

A number of sheriffs in New York have been critical of the so-called SAFE Act and five have joined a lawsuit against the new restrictions.
