Gawker Publishes Complete 446-Page List of ‘All the ***h^les Who Own Guns in New York City’
The Blaze ^ | January 8, 2013 | Jason Howerton

Editor’s note: This post contains some strong language that may be offensive to some readers.

The website Gawker has outdone New York’s “Journal News” and published the names of all licensed gun owners in New York City. With the provocative headline, “Here Is a List of All the A**holes Who Own Guns in New York City,” John Cook provides a 446-page list of every licensed gun owner in NYC, obtained two-and-a-half years ago via a Freedom of Information Act request.

“Below is a 446-page list of every licensed gun owner in New York City…Because the NYPD is more interested in raping and/or eating ladies and spying on Muslims than it is in honoring public records law, the list contains only the names, and not the addresses, of the licensees,” Cook writes.

The Journal News sparked outrage when it published the names and addresses of pistol permit holders in Westchester and Rockland Counties. The paper wanted to also publish the information of gun owners in Putnam County, N.Y., but so far the county has refused, saying providing the information would put the public in danger.

As Cook correctly points out, section 400.00 of the Penal Law of New York, entitled “Licenses to carry, possess, repair and dispose of firearms,” makes addresses of licensed gun owners public information. “The name and address of any person to whom an application for any license has been granted shall be a public record,” the law states....

Gawker. Isn’t that another hipster gossip site run by metrosexuals?

Why do they have their panties in a bunch?

If by “metrosexuals” you mean screaming queens, then yes, it is.

Maybe it’s just me, but people liked Cook appear to be more likely to start a mass shooting than any of the people on that list.

Anyone wanna bet there are some names missing from that list?

Someone needs to crosscheck with known libs who carry...the ‘elite’ types.

Here is their tips website. We could tie it up with GFY e-mails. I have been doing that.

Metrosexuals are just males who do not want to be called homosexuals (which they really are).

The White House may have a hand in this and may have influenced the Journal News’ published list. The tactic is to demonize people who believe in gun rights. Obama won't do that directly but he can get the news media, Hollywood and his surrogates—like Cuomo and Gabby Giffords—to say it for him. This is the same tactic used against Wall Street, physicians, policemen, business people and Republicans.

We'll soon be hearing that gun rights defenders are “racists.”

Good. Let them keep right on dividing their support into ever smaller blocs.

Because lotsa libs own guns, though we like to say they don’t.

Funny how gun owners are automatically “assholes”, while Moslems’ sensibilities must be protected.

Hi, I’m Reverend Norm of the Church of Controllable Recoil. I hereby baptize every gun owner into my new non denominational organization. We believe in the 2nd Amendment.

As a member you are now entitled to be an oppressed minority.

Howard Stern is on the list but, Bo Dietl is not, you’d think he’d be licensed to carry.

I think a good search would find MANY modern celeb/popular/political libs not on that list. But I’ll bet they would show up on the real one.

Is Bill Mahr?

So this idiot labeled ever private citizen on that list an asshole and maliciously exposed their gun ownership.

Brilliant./s

Sucks for the Conservatives, but if they want to keep doing this and drive more libs to the center/right, I’ll take it.

Not like we can stop them.

“A**-wholes”

The lost tribe of NY...Senaca, Cayuga, Onondoga, Onieda, Mohawk and “A**-wholes”

Though I doubt the tribes would want most of them.

John Cook. I will remember this name. If I develop a dread disease and there’s no more point, he’s the last person I will visit. It is important to visit Nazis.

I’d rather people say “ass-h” than “A-hole”. When someone says “A-hole” all I can see is a rectum. Someone could say “I met this guy who’s a real A-hole and he won the lottery and says he’s going to give you half.” I wouldn’t hear anything after “A-hole”.

* the 9m unarmed suckers in NYC
* the 1.2m mothers that have killed their children, this year
* the 50m+ people on food stamps
* the 8m+ people on disability
* the people on ‘extended’ unemployment

etc etc

I believe it was them who drove the Fucowiee out of the state. No one has seen them sence, but occasionally you run into someone looking for them.

Muncie’s a ‘Tree City’, we all sport wood, yep yep. Oh, I sent ‘Treebeard’ to a house of low morals on Walnut St.
Not that I’ve been there.

So, every time someone is shot in NYC, the Police have a list of the Usual Suspects available at their fingertips.

When a Gun Murder is solved, I am sure that one of the people on that list will be incarcerated, thus reducing the number of “licensed” Gun Owners in New York.

Furthermore, I will make the stretch that 90% PLUS of those listed are Democrats, supporting the Party that has no qualms about taking away the Constitutional Rights of the “average” American, average being someone who is not part of the NYC Elite.

If the Police arrest anyone not currently on that list for using a Firearm, the entire Bloomberg Gun Control policy is proven to be a failure, which of course it is.
