Armed guards are protecting the offices of a New York newspaper after it received threats for publishing a map showing the names and addresses of pistol permit holders in Westchester and Rockland counties.
The security guards will stand watch outside the Journal News' Rockland County office through at least Wednesday, the Rockland Times newspaper reported.
The Gannett-owned paper angered gun owners and gun rights advocates last month when it published the interactive map on its website, LoHud.com, in the wake of the Sandy Hook school massacre.
Journal News editor Caryn McBride reported the flood of angry emails and calls to Clarkstown Police, but cops didn't find anything that suggested a real threat, according to a police report obtained by the Times.
