    Goelocate Dangerous guns and owners

    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. 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. "The app bills itself as merely a tool to collect information, but it was hit with a firestorm of negative reviews and comments from people worried that it could do more harm than good.

    “This is dangerous and invasive,” wrote Levi Russell in a review of the app. “Dangerous because it allows criminals to determine where they might steal firearms….you are an accomplice to any firearm theft that will occur due to the existence of this app.”
    "Major violation of privacy,” wrote Danielle Sigman in another review, one of more than 700 one-star reviews of the app. “Could cause a lot of safety issues for non-gun owners.”
    Brett Stalbaum, the developer of Gun Geo Marker and a lecturer with the Visual Arts department of the University of California, San Diego, said he had received threats over the app.
    "The gun rights community has been busy making personal threats (we remain unconcerned), as well as spamming the Gun Geo Marker database with false markers," he exclusively told FoxNews.com. "Though these fake markers are not useful for identifying dangerous guns and owners, they are certainly representative of the highly paranoid reaction we have come to expect from any attempt to improve gun safety in the United States


    Who is offering this App? Of course google...Don't be evil, yeah right!

    Just one more of the large of growing list of reasons to boycott everything related to Google.

    Google is a cyber mercenary, they run for anybody that bring them money.

    On the flip side, they should create a application that identifies homes with no firearms and no alarm systems. That would make it much safer for hard working criminals to earn a living.

    Google isn't a business. It's a liberal political movement with lots of data we gave them.

    I cannot figure out who has done more damage to the economy: Google or our president. It's a coin toss.

    At a gun blog, someone does have such an app.
    To find liberals with no guns.
    But google, apple and amazon so far refuse to carry the app.

    Must find that link again.
    I know it was on guns.com somewhere about the blog.
