Clearly not content to come in second place to the privacy-violating jerks at the Journal News, Gawker has published a list of all legal gun owners in New York City in 2010:
Here is a list of all the assholes who own guns in New York City: gaw.kr/zxBqiok

So lawful gun owners are “assholes”? Stay classy, Gawker.
Gun rights advocates are rightly outraged:

Publishing lists of gun registrations isn’t going to cut down on guns, it’s going to cut down on registrations.

I wonder how many battered women who own a gun for self-defense are on the list @gawker released today?

Most irresponsible piece of “journalism” I have seen in ages goes to @johnjcook of Gawker. Way to out LICENSED gun owners, you prick.

So is it now self-evident according to @gawker that if you register a gun in NYC you’re an A-hole?

.@gawker Logic: While calling for new gun laws, we’ll punish and insult people who follow current gun laws.

Good work, Gawker. You hate gun-owners, so you map out how to rob people who don’t own guns, for criminals. #cuttingofnosetospiteface

And some are wondering when the “real journalists” at Gawker will get to other lists:
How would liberals feel if Gawker somehow obtained and published a list of every person that has gotten an abortion?
— AG (@AG_Conservative) January 8, 2013
Hey @gawker — How about you also compile a list of those who used taxpayer money to have abortions. Seems only fair.

Cross-reference that list of legal gun owners w/those who commit crimes w/illegal guns, @gawker. I await your breathtaking expose.
— Miké (@ThePantau) January 8, 2013
It’s gonna be a while. Hope you brought a book.
We’re not sure when those who follow the law and exercise their Constitutional rights came to be considered the most vile members of our society, but it seems to us that Gawker’s more than happy to have played a role in populating that bizarro notion. How absolutely disgusting.
There’s a commenter on that @gawker page saying their stalker contacted them after their name was first published by the Journal. Good going

Here’s a list of all the a$$holes who think they’re credible journalists: @gawker.
