Gun Geo Marker: App for Outing Gun Owners

Apparently outing gun owners like they were sex offenders is in vogue these days. A new app just released on the Android market is seeking to “crowd source” the pinpointing of “dangerous guns” and their owners. The site didn’t specify what they consider to be “dangerous” guns, but judging by the AR-15 in the logo it looks like they assume anything that Dianne Feinstein believes fits the bill of an “assault weapon” should be reported. Make the jump for the app’s 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.
