    Angry Gun Geo Marker app tries to locate homes, businesses of gun owners

    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.

    I'm glad here in New Hampshire we don't have to register weapons.

    Whole lot of negative comments about this app on the Google site, to include several which said that Google is putting itself wide open for a lawsuit if it is proven that any damages occurred because of the app.

    When I looked, the app was only rated one star and, had it been possible, would probably have been rated 0 stars.

    Ain't nothing wrong with this app. I believe in Liberty. Including the Liberty to protect yourself by flooding this app with information as useless as identifying your house as an unsafe gun place.

    Respect the author and the user of this app's Liberty--and teach them what Liberty is by effectively using this app.

    Gun Geo Marker app tries to locate homes, businesses of gun owners

    The news story I read said that this app was not available through the Apple apps store. Don't know if this is because Apple has blocked it, or if they simply didn't code it for Mac. If Apple did block it, then I'm gonna stick with them for my computing needs. Used to use Windows, finally saw the light and switched to Linux, and have an iPhone that works better than my computer. This would give me one more reason to go all with way with Macintosh.

    I don't like the idea. I can see the lady next door putting everyone she sees with a gun on there. It opens up for issues with basically slander against people who could be just an ordinary Joe.

    This App is junk, useless, and such a wast of time. I find it hard to believe that it has gotten so much unneeded attention.

    It is indeed dangerous and invasive. What criminals need to know, however, is that the locations immediately surrounding a suspected gun owner are most likely populated with anti-gun nuts with high-priced electronics...

    Tag every tree you come across, because the wood can be used to make an evil stock and pistol grip set.

    Tag the plumbing sections in every hardware store, because all those steel/iron pipes can be used to make an evil barrel and the copper pipes can be drawn into evil bullet jackets.

    Tag every piece of wheel weight lead you can find in the mall parking lot, because that lead can be used to make evil bullets.

    Tag every GFZ, because that is where guns do their most evil.

    I realize you've not answered any of the questions I've asked you in other threads, but I'll try again.

    They will follow us and report WHAT exactly? The app implies all those who carry guns or have them in the home are unsafe because of it.

    Besides, I heard I am justified in physically assaulting anyone who follows me.

I won't respond to the last part of your reply as I know a baiting tactic when I see one and now realize I'm speaking with one who probibly likes to follow and report.

    My post, #23. You only had six posts, it wasn't hard to find.

    You have no problem with an app with the obvious purpose of misleading (possibly criminally so) or outright lying (definitely criminally so) about the dangers of mere possession of firearms?

    I'm at a loss on your non sequitur that I probably like to follow and report based on my observation that you have publicly posted this as legitimate justification for physical assault.

    Re: Gun Geo Marker app tries to locate homes, businesses of gun owners

    I tried to use the app to check my house out but it appears you have to be at the location to report it. Idk if it wasn't working right or I did something wrong but I couldn't look at locations other than where I was.
