NEW YORK (PIX11) – Gawker editor John Cook has published a list of licensed gun owners in New York City.

Cook obtained the 446-page list in 2010 after a Freedom of Information law request, for work on a different story.

It does not include addresses.

Last month, The Journal News sparked controversy for publishing an online map of the names and addresses of people with pistol permits in the wake of the Sandy Hook school shooting.
