AUGUSTA — The Bangor Daily News has asked Maine police departments for the names, addresses and dates of birth of all concealed-weapon permit holders, a move that is angering gun-rights advocates and Republicans in the State House - including Gov. Paul LePage.
"The BDN has no intention to release this information publicly,” said Anthony Ronzio, the newspaper’s director of news and new media, in a prepared statement Thursday.
