Gun Geo Marker app tries to locate homes, businesses of gun owners..
FoxNews.com ^ | July 11, 2013 | Jeremy A. Kaplan

Posted on 07/11/2013 7:11:30 AM PDT by LUV W

A new Android app asks users to expose the home addresses of gun owners they deem “potentially unsafe” -- and share that information with the world.

The Gun Geo Marker app, released to Google’s Play app store on July 7, invites users to mark the homes and businesses of “suspected unsafe gun owners … to help others in the area learn about their geography of risk from gun accidents or violence."

I would suggest one be developed for homosexuals also. I would like to know what areas to avoid.

Nice to live in a County where the Sheriff doesn’t share his info with anybody and there is no State requirement to “register” anything.

It’s up to me to keep my neighbors in the dark.

Almost makes me want to buy it just so I can add my own address with a super scary description of my arsenal / cache / stockpile / armory / ammo depot just to keep the commie pinkos away.

"As a gun owner myself, I want to see our rights preserved, and thwarting the will of 90 percent of the American people who want common sense, Constitutional measures to improve gun safety is mathematically unwise," Stalbaum [the author of the app] said.

I presume that the author of the app has marked his home on the map?

If not, he's a hypocrite.

How about making an app that marks the homes of anti-gvn libs with lots of expensive things?

and maybe an app that identifies the areas that feral thugs roam & rampage? A 'hood avoidance app'? "Warning: You are about to enter a 3rd world utopia"

“I would suggest one be developed for homosexuals also. I would like to know what areas to avoid.”

How about a geo-locator for homo AIDS patients?

With MDs asking about gun ownership as a “health issue”.... If you tell him you have guns in the house this info could be leaked by a Gov’t worker to parties to establish a gun owners geo-locator

I think the best thing to do in response is create a “Best Places to Burglarize” app. List location and addresses of homes where you know the owner does not own a gun.

suspected unsafe gun owners

One would suspect that if you own a gun, you are much safer than anyone who does not own a gun.

Ok, let’s counter-attack.

Someone needs to write an app that locates homes of ultra-liberal, anti-gun types and mark them on a map so the burglars & thieves can target them....

Kinda like that sign in the guys yard that pointed to his neighbor as being anti-gun with no guns in house....

At 1600 Pennsylvania Ave in DC the resident has shown gross negligence in allowing huge numbers of dangerous firearms to go to unlicensed users.

“I would suggest one be developed for homosexuals also. I would like to know what areas to avoid.”

No reason you can’t use the firearms app to identify suspected homosexuals as unsafe gun owners.

Or local politicians, people who let their dog use your front yard, suspected TEA Party leaders, SIEU members.

Or just go through your local phone directory from Aanthony A. Aardvarrk to Zelda Z. Zzzimmermann.

This app sounds like a lot of fun! Anyone can generate lots of social chaos with it!

Nary a thing, FRiend. I think that 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. is a prime candidate for being listed as the home of a reckless gun owner...

A Denounce Your Neighbor app. How forward thinking.

What prevents us from downloading this app and marking the residences of liberal politicians, activists and anyone else on the other side? Nothing? Very good, carry on.

“Ok, let’s counter-attack.

Just use the same app flagging them as owners of unsecured Class 3 weapons. Less effort than a new app.

There was an effort among some churches to have a database of houses where it was safe to let your kids play. Gun owners were never on the “safe” list and if someone found out that a house had guns it was dropped from the “safe” list. Same idea here.

Great. So if you got a Gadsden Flag, Molon Lave, or any other “dissident” sticker on your car, you get your house flagged...

or a vengeful divorcee...

Well, Neighborhood Watch may become Mutually Supporting Fields of Fire Watch.

Actually, that’s not a bad idea. Just flood the app with bad information and make it useless.
This app is a lawsuit just waiting to happen.

Buy the app so you can add every address. Trash their database with so many false positives that their results are meaningless. Don’t forget to list an armed pedophile at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue (note: I’m not claiming the drug-addled communist is an actual pedophile, I don’t know whether the skeet shooter prefers boys just over 18 or under age, just that it would be fun to contaminate this database with unsubstantiated accusations).

Buy it and start marking everything, everwhere.

Just like I mark Native American, Tribe Levi on all my official gubmint forms.

I think everyone should mark “black” on their forms.

Maybe they should have an app that shows where there are ladders fatal accidents with ladders are a lot more prevalent with ladders than with guns

I agree. Use their own weapon against them. Input every liberal you know with false information.

I’d be willing to have my location reported, as long as they also included the following info:

1. A dieting, pre-menopausal CCW harpy lives at the location.

2. So do two grouchy teenage females (helpful hint: between the girls and their constantly visiting pals, someone is always PMSing at MY house)

3. Add in two stranger-hating 90lb+ German Shepherds

4. Did I forget to mention my teen son just got braces and is a member of the rifle team?

5. If you think my long-suffering hubby is weary of OUR antics, imagine his tolerance of someone dumb enough to cause trouble here. 6’4 and a big bag of cranky.

6. Everyone in the family (dogs excluded) is proficient with shovels.

Yep, add that info, and I have NO problem with being on “the List” :-)

Better yet, I think that every gun owner should get this app and put in information for every home that they can find - with the ultimate goal being to have every single home in the country listed, thereby making this an utterly useless app.

But let's start with the anti-gun pols, media types, snarky uber-liberals, etc.
