Another media outlet has released the names of licensed gun owners following the outrage created by New York's Journal News, which released an interactive map of gun permit holders in Westchester and Rockland counties.

Now, the website Gawker has published a 446-page list of licensed New York City gun owners.

The website defended the decision to release the data, saying it is public information and was obtained from the NYPD two years ago via a Freedom of Information Act request.
