The controversial interactive map of local gun permit holders published by a Lower Hudson Valley newspaper Journal News infuriated many people, but one blogger decided to punish the paper's staff members by doing just what they did o others.

Christopher Fountain has spent the last three days posting the names and addresses of nearly every Journal News employee!

When asked by CNN to justify his actions, he said he was offended by the paper's "conflating legal gun owners with some crazed tormented devil up in Newtown," and "wondered how they would like it if their addresses were published."

Following the outcry over its decision to publish the map, the Journal News released a statement saying it "felt sharing as much information as we could about gun ownership in our area was important in the aftermath of the Newtown shooting."
