Submission + - New York Pistol Permit Owner List Leaked (pastebin.com)

An anonymous reader writes: On Friday, The Journal News caved under pressure of gun advocates and shutdown the interactive maps which contained the names and addresses of licensed gun owners in upstate New York. The maps are still visible on the site however they are simply static images. The Journal News published the interactive maps on December 23 which caused significant backlash.

In a similar move, Gawker published the names of licensed gun owners in New York City without addresses.

New York state Senator Greg Ball (republican) called the removal of the data a "huge win."

On Saturday, an anonymous user leaked the raw data used to build The Journal News maps.
