NY gun owners need to file form to keep information private

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, N.Y. -

New York gun owners who don't want their registration information to be available to the public need to file forms.

Starting Wednesday, the records of anyone who has requested an exemption from the state Freedom of Information Law will be kept secret.

But if gun owners haven't filed the form with local authorities, the information will be available.

This is part of New York's new gun laws requiring registration of military-style weapons.

The provision was enacted after a New York newspaper published information about gun owners in two counties following the Newtown, Connecticut school shootings.
