Journal News publisher Janet Hasson tells The New York Times, ``The safety of my staff is my top priority.''

The newspaper last month published online maps with the names and addresses of pistol permit holders in two counties it covers. It sought the public records after the school shooting in nearby Newtown, Connecticut.

Critics say the publication is an invasion of privacy.
