(Reuters) – Gun-owner groups called on Monday for an advertising boycott of a suburban New York newspaper that is under fire for publishing the names and addresses of pistol permit-holders in New York City suburbs.

A map published in the White Plains, New York-based Journal News last week listed thousands of permit-holders in Westchester and Rockland counties, just north of New York City.

The newspaper has said it is compiling yet more names of pistol permit-holders in suburban Putnam County that it intends to publish as well.
