A police chief in Maine took to Facebook to warn residents of his town that a newspaper had requested all permit data through an open records request.

The chief wanted to warn residents that the paper was asking for the material, but said he was legally bound to give them the information under the law.

Now, the paper has dropped its request after pushback from the chief, the public and the state’s Republican lawmakers.

The chief was worried that if the newspaper compiled a gun owner map, as was done in NY (pictured), it could endanger public safety.
