Gawker publishes 2-year-old list of legal gun-owning ‘a**holes’ in NYC; Updated!/RBPundit/status/288746243172225024

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:

So lawful gun owners are “assholes”? Stay classy, Gawker.

Gun rights advocates are rightly outraged:

Shorter @gawker: “Hey NYers! Don’t register your weapons! We’ll out you!” #tcot #p2

— RB (@RBPundit) January 8, 2013

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

— Brad Thor (@BradThor) January 8, 2013

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

— Trent (@Travesham) January 8, 2013

Apparently @johnjcook and @gawker would prefer to criminalize legal gun owners than write about actual news #twisters #tcot #guncontrol #nra

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

— Skyler Nichols (@tyrkoil) January 8, 2013

Thanks to an assbag named @johnjcook from @gawker everyone who has a registered gun in New York is a target

— Kent Vig (1 of 5) (@badfr0g) January 8, 2013

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

— Jonah Goldberg (@JonahNRO) January 8, 2013

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

— Sunny (@sunnyright) January 8, 2013

@sunnyright @gawker And owning an unregistered gun to pursue a life of crime means you’re not.

— Dan McLaughlin (@baseballcrank) January 8, 2013

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

— Ryan Breslin (@Booster_JJ) January 8, 2013

What the hell is wrong with people “outing” those who simply employ their Constitutional rights?… Looking at @gawker

— Kemberlee Kaye (@red_red_head) January 8, 2013

@gawker wow. I will never visit your site again. this is like a criminals dream: here are the houses you don’t want to break in to

— Jeff Schroeffel (@capdc) January 8, 2013

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.

— GayPatriot (@GayPatriot) January 8, 2013

@jedediahbila @gawker surprising there’s no list of people who eat at McDonald’s

— Ryan.. frohock (@RFrohock) January 8, 2013

Haha Gawker.Can’t wait for their food stamp list.Profile everyone!!!

— Sean (@SeanWats) January 8, 2013

Dear @gawker, please post a list of actual criminals in New York…say people on parole, and see what happens.

— Right Scoop (@trscoop) January 8, 2013

@jedediahbila @gawker Can we get a list of who gets free birth control? that would be a list worth publishing.

— Mitchell Dinkin (@madlaw1071) January 8, 2013

Not being a reporter like @johnjcook ‘s I challenge him or someone @gawker to list the addresses bars in NYC most likely to lead to rape

— Kurtis Marsh (D) (@kurtismarsh) January 8, 2013

Where’s the list that shows that @johnjcook from @gawker is a raging douchebag? Surely there is one?…

— Ben Howe (@BenHowe) January 8, 2013

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

— Veruca Salt (D) (@LilMissRightie) January 8, 2013

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

Gawker’s John Cook has modified the headline of his “article”:
