    They really should drug-test all public employees, especially "professors".. and have a locating app for convicted drug abusers.

    You should have included a Coffee Warning ...


    "I almost wasn't going to download this app because I live in Chicago, which has the best gun laws in the country meaning nobody around here would ever own a gun. I did anyway on a lark, and yesterday a guy jumped out of the dark with what I can only assume was a high capacity Assault Glockamatic with armor piercing clipazines. I quickly pulled out my phone and threatened to tag him with this app. He then saw my Hillary 2016 sticker and Flying Spaghetti Monster tattoo and embraced the glory of the Progressive Way, threw down his Fully Slaughtermatic Bushmaster AR-47 Childkiller and pledged his allegiance to Obama and Biden. Thanks, Gun Geo Marker!

    That one made me LOL man. There are some great ones in there. Even the 5 star reviews are jokes.

    On a serious note, hard to believe someone would think this is a good idea. Talk about targeted theft, among other things. My review asked him if he could imagine doing this to another group of people practicing a lawful activity.

    Religious, sexual orientation, political affiliation, etc.

    On a side note the WA side of the columbia is free of guns ! ;)

    I have a couple of thoughts. I don't think it will be that popular. If gets more popular, just to mark a lot of things so the data becomes diluted garbage. Libraries and portable toilets come to mind.

    I'm guessing most of the things added to it will be jokes, people wanting to hurt the data quality, or people seeking revenge.

    One big spot over D.C., tag it all......what gov't buildings have full time armed security? Just courthouses and jails? And how many celebrities and gov't representatives have we seen with armed security? Tag 'em all!!!

    EDIT: Anybody here who could code an app to tag gun-free zones, and home-owners who don't agree with firearm ownership? Is that malicious? ;)

    I could. I have been looking for a reason to write an Android app. Have to see if I get the time and energy though.

    I'm presuming that to the professor one becomes an unsafe gun owner by possessing a gun.

    Try it. You can tag random locations with random strings of profanity in complete anonymity. I'm tagging all sorts spots just to clog up the map.

    Cool. Might be in the neighborhood of some Ceasefire offices in the coming weeks. I'll make sure to tag them. Best reason I can think of to go around them.

    I'm also travelling for work next week. I'll be sure to tag places with some family friendly phrases.

    The downside is that you can only tag once every 24 hrs....

    They need an app to pinpoint all non gun owners. The criminals would greatly appreciate knowing where they could do all kinds of criminal acts without the danger of getting shot.

    people need to tag everything they can until it is useless and nobody takes it seriously.

    I emailed them to tell them how much I love their app and got this response:

    "But we are sorry to inform, this is an unmonitored email box. If you
    have questions about any of our projects, please refer to contact
    information at the walkingtools website, or call (225) 267-7346."

    I was thinking that if we each mark our entire neighborhood, it might keep unwanted people (including criminals with smartlhones) out of our area, for fear of all the dangerous guns in the area. ;-)
