Description
Geolocate Dangerous Guns and Owners with the Gun Geo Marker. Geolocation means marking dangerous sites on the App's map so that you and others can be aware of the risks in your neighborhood.

The Gun Geo Marker operates very simply, letting parents and community members mark, or geolocate, sites associated with potentially unsafe guns and gun owners. These locations are typically the homes or businesses of suspected unsafe gun owners, but might also be public lands or other locations where guns are not handled safely, or situations where proper rights to own or use any particular type of firearm may not exist. Electronically marking these locations can help others in the area learn about their geography of risk from gun accidents or violence. No matter what your safety concern with firearms might be, you should feel free to use this tool to provide the most accurate information you can such that others can make their own safety decisions.

As a crowd sourced information tool, the information about dangerous gun sites comes from users. Please follow us at http://www.gungeomarker.org, https://twitter.com/gungeomarker and https://www.facebook.com/GunGeoMarker.

Just make sure to download it and mark all the anti-gun people in your neighbourhood as dangerous.

After all, that's the purpose of the app and they cannot be against someone using it to mark dangerous houses with addresses and names, right?

(edit) Got their phone numbers? Add 'em. Work addresses? Them too. Use the tool for what it's designed for.

Looks like this is on its way to becoming the most negatively reviewed app ever!

HerrGlock 07-10-2013 06:14

I've often said if "they" ever have a phone number to turn in illegal gun owners I was going to use it to call in my suspicions about every person I've ever met who argued anti-rights. If it's good enough for gun owners, it's good enough for anti-rights types too.

The comments on the article give lots of appropriate tagging.

I would suggest the SPLC, Feinstein's house and office, Brady campaign, Gifford's organization, etc.

You can also phone the author and provide your feedback (225) 267-7346.

Best I recall, Feinstein's house would be a legitimate report, since she is stupid and owns a gun.

Need to Google up some Section 8 housing areas in San Antonio, be back in a minute.

Hitler, Mao, Castro, Jong-Il, Stalin, Bloomberg, Feinstein And Obama all approve of this app. . . .

A whole bunch of people doing exactly this is probably the best way to insure that this stupid app dies on the vine and eventually disappears from the app marketplace entirely. If they (the anti gunners), out of nothing but their anti 2A spite, want to try to cause us trouble and mark our homes as evil & dangerous spots on the map - lets do it right back to them with their own devices until those devices become useless.

I think the whole purpose if this app is nothing but to be mean and create trouble for people who have different political opinions.

Angry Fist 07-11-2013 18:26

I live in a liberal heaven! No guns within 10 or so miles... :whistling:


Fail.

I used to be against all forms of gun control, but I have been convinced by the Democrats we need some. Democrats, ObamaZomies, and other felons are dangerous and should not be armed.

I live in an eight unit building in an apartment complex. One guy upstairs is kind of a gun nut told me he was the only armed person in the neighborhood. I told him I do not know anyone who is NOT armed. I then told him about my armed significant others.

I found out one is. He was a drug dealer who armed himself after a conviction. He was then caught with arms after that and convicted. He refurbishes apartments when they come empty and we all watch him.

We have started reminding him to make his appointments with his parole officer, since he got rearrested for failing to report. I doubt he has firearms because we would report him in a heartbeat.

I do not do an open carry because it would alarm the night security and, likely, hurt his feelings. He only gets to carry pepper spray. We got them when we had some car break-ins and car thefts.

Regarding lists of armed homeowners, I am retired and do not get any live fire exercises. So, I do not want my name on that list. It might scare away an opportunity.

If we have an anti-gun type in our neighborhood, they are being VERY QUIET about it.

I read an article about this, but didn't see what data they based their conclusions on. Guess someone could develop an app that does the opposite, identifying those who DON'T own firearms. Remember I said it first...

Drjones 07-11-2013 19:21

When I visited the google play page, it had exactly 1,776 negative reviews. Funny.

That being said, my true feelings on this app & what should happen to its developer and anyone who downloads it for its intended use, would get me banned, so I'll let your imagination do the work.

Drjones 07-11-2013 19:24

Didn't hitler play his own little version of "tag the people we hate"?

So glad to see this behavior and mindset making a comeback....though I guess it's the core of the left.

GlockPistola 07-11-2013 19:52

Everyone should download this app and mark the White House, DOJ and Eric Holder's address as unsafe places with guns because of Fast and Furious.

Clusterfrack 07-11-2013 20:16

This is so misguided. Criminals looking to steal guns now have a road map to our homes? Bigots looking to harass a certain class of people can now make an app for that based on this one? I don't have an Android device, but if I did I would spend a few minutes a day adding random addresses to the database.

Altaris 07-11-2013 20:34

Just download the app and if you are bored, go through and tag every single house in your neighborhood/city. If everyone is tagging every house possible then the app becomes useless.

Their facebook page is pretty much melting down with outrage... it's really quite impressive.

I can't find a single comment even trying to support this sort of horse****.

I wonder if that NY newspaper has heard of this & will provide funding/support. :upeyes:

Glockdude1 07-12-2013 10:19

Use the app against them.

Download the app and enter every single address you can find. Flood it with address's. Millions of them.

:supergrin:

I'm finding it amusing how many are posting to mark the app maker's address, then giving the address :)

I wonder if he feels....violated.....oh, the irony...

mfm9 07-13-2013 06:46

We need a different app, one that allows us to mark gun-free zones. That way, criminals will know who to target. With bad guys focused on "soft targets", they will leave us law-abiding gun owners alone.
