NY to spend $28M on gun permit data

ALBANY (AP) -- Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver says New York will spend $27.74 million to develop the first statewide electronic handgun permit database as part of its new gun control law.
Silver tells The Associated Press Tuesday that the measure will create a central database of pistol permit records now kept at the county level where handgun owners live.
It will allow statewide cross-checking with records of crimes and involuntary commitments to mental health facilities.
The law exempts records of individual handgun owners from the state Freedom of Information Law. That would avoid the conflict that arose when a newspaper reported the names of handgun permit holders and their addresses.
The funding is in the tentative state budget expected to gain final legislative approval in the Assembly later this week.
