A group advocating for Second amendments rights in New York State issued a Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) request to the Office of the Rockland County, N.Y. Clerk on Thursday, February 27, 2020.
Under the New York Freedom of Information Law, the request seeks a range of public records relating to the county’s pistol permitting practices.
“I believe the result of our FOIL request recently issued to the Office of the Rockland County Clerk will clearly demonstrate what the people of Rockland County and, frankly, New Yorkers residing in all counties of the state, have known for decades – that the unconstitutional state pistol permitting regime allows for massive corruption, nepotism, and unlawful inconsistencies,” the groups founder Steve Felano said.
The New York Freedom of Information Law requires that Rockland County respond within five business days.
