BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- The Bangor Daily News stated in it's weekend news paper that it has rescinded it's request for records of concealed weapon permit holders, but still several are upset over the paper's action.
Many of those people were at the BDN's front steps on Main Street in Bangor Saturday afternoon in protest. A collection of Green Mail boxes with the paper's logo on the side piled up as the afternoon carried on.
The freedom of access request by the news paper drew attention throughout the week. The paper has apologized saying that it "regrets that its request for information may have been taken as a person attack on concealed carry permit holders." The Bangor paper has also said that it never planned on publishing any personal identifying information of permit holders that it would have received.
