(ROCKLAND COUNTY TIMES) — A White Plains, N.Y., home highlighted on the infamous Journal News interactive gun map was burglarized Saturday and their gun safe was damaged in an attempted robbery.

The burglars were unable to open the safe. It is not clear if the thieves thought the safe stored other valuables or if they were actually seeking to steal a gun.

New York Newsday ran with the story under the headline “Journal News gun permit map used by burglars to target White Plains home?”

Below is NYS Sen. Greg Ball’s press release. Even if this story is proven to have nothing to do with the gun map, it is an example of “what could be,” Senator Ball points out.
