    The sad irony is if I made an app (way above my tech level) to mark every Muslim I thought to be dangerous, or every backwood snake handling Christian church, I would be in quite a bit of trouble. I will never understand the argument that we shouldn't judge large group A based on the actions of small group B. But they do it to gun owners on a daily basis.

    Just flag every single spot on the map. If enough pro-gun android users do it, the app is rendered useless.

    lawsuit

    Would this invasion of privacy warrant a lawsuit against the app maker?

    Set aside the horrible concept for a moment and look at the execution as well. You cannot flag a marker some distance from your location, you have to physically walk to the "dangerous" location in order to flag it. Also the map has limited zoom capability and absolutely no panning. The map is always centered on your current location. The execution is so poor (and so much more limited than the other two apps from the same source) that I suspect it is a publicity stunt.

    Any time someone wants to "flag" gunowners, the proper response would be to flag the residence of that person and list the assets he or she keeps there.

    The data should be available from the federal government.

    Problem solved.

    Just tag every address in California. It'll make the data useless.

    Bingo. If I ever get flagged on that app, I will flag everyone within a 10 mile radius of me. Not all at once, of course, but over time.

    Agreed.

    I suggest no one download this app. Based on the creators comments it seems he fully expects gun owners to react negatively to it. Maybe he's hoping to get the response some here suggest. When you down load the app and geo-position your address he can gather a lot of info about you.

    I think he fully expects gun owners to download the app. You would be voluntarily giving your info to a known cyber hacker.

    The irony is that they say this is a way of exercising First Amendment rights...

    Slander and libel aren't protected, and I think publishing a list of people who are "irresponsible gun owners" is arguably libel.

    In that case this dude is going to think that the Delaware office of a large financial institution is the home of a "dangerous gun owner."

    You mean like this? :)

    I can't claim this one, but somebody who lives in my town can.

    What really pissed me off on that page, he mentions that people need to understand their constitutional right, then the very next sentence says how it is subject to laws and regulations... Obviously you don't understand if you think that it is subject to anything... That's the problem.

    Do you think that if I tagged 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, D.C., that the White House would send out a drone to “quash” the infidel? :eek:

    heck, just go read the reviews on Google Play if you want a good laugh. one of them says that the user found a report of a guy near them who "Makes Rambo look like a (non-High Road word that starts with a P)"

    They aren't false markers, people were just tagging every DEA office and residence of a DEA agent just to be safe (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S7ufT_6Kgy0). Then you have the residences of all the ATF agents in Phoenix, AG Holder's homes, VP Biden's place, Dick Cheney's home, the list just goes on and on ...
