A new Smart Phone app describing itself as “tattle ware” allows users to upload information regarding locations where they have “gun related concerns,” allowing people to anonymously report their neighbors and others if issue is taken with their ownership of firearms.
The Gun Geo Marker app, created by a group called The Walkingtools Laboratory and available through the Google Play Android marketplace, says “marking dangerous sites on the App’s map” will let “you and others… 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,” the app’s Google Play store description states.
“Electronically marking these locations can help others in the area learn about their geography of risk from gun accidents or violence,” the software’s creators claim.
GunGeoMarker.org’s “Gun Marking Guidelines” outline what types of gun owners users should be concerned with, in addition to making political jabs at the U.S. Congress, the National Rifle Association, and varying degrees of gun owners.
The program gives users the option to mark homes, businesses and other locations with different designations that the app’s creators believe will increase public safety because, as its website states, “congress has left parents with so few options to protect their families from potentially dangerous gun owners that erring on the side of safety is highly advised.”
Gun owners fearful of a centralized gun-owner database may thank the University of California in San Diego along with the Federal University of São Paulo, Brazil for the ingenious app, which can not only identify homes that are merely suspected of having guns, but can also note if those guns are loaded or not, and whether or not they may be locked in a safe.
According to the app’s guidelines, “unlocked, loaded or carelessly stored weapons should generally be treated with concern by friends, neighbors and visitors,” and should be marked.
Also, if you’ve recently just picked up your first firearm, you’re liable to be marked as a threat by someone. “First time gun owners or others who may not have not [sic] taken basic gun safety training, or who were not raised in a culture of gun safety, represent a real and present danger to their community, themselves and their family members,” the site states.
