In the aftermath of the Sandy Hook massacre, a suburban New York newspaper took an unusual approach to promote gun awareness.  The Journal News publishing an interactive map containing the names and addresses of thousands of residents in Rockland and Westchester counties who have gun permits.

Readers quickly condemned the article, saying it targets gun owners while leaving unarmed residents vulnerable to would-be robbers.  The paper defended its decision, noting the names and addresses were legally obtained through public records.
