In the wake of the Newtown tragedy, New York State’s Journal News posted an interactive map displaying the addresses of all pistol permit holders in Westchester and Rockland counties. Now Gawker, never one to shy away from controversy, has posted a 446-page list of New York City gun owners obtained from the NYPD two-and-a-half years ago by Gawker writer John Cook. You could get all outraged and filled with righteous indignation over this, or you could read Adam Penenberg’s thoughtful post on why people who get mad at outlets like the Journal News are barking up the wrong privacy tree (or shooting up the wrong privacy horse as he puts it).
