    Trying out "Gun Free Zone" app

    I downloaded a new app today entitled "Gun Free Zones". The app was free on Google Play. It shows you GFZ's in the area that you are in. It lets the user designate a location (workplace, store, etc) as a GFZ. As an experiment I entered my own workplace (defense facility that is a GFZ) and the result was instantaneous. I don't know if I will make a regular habit out of using it, but I'll darn sure give it a try.

    Great. Now there is an App for psychotic mass murderers to choose their soft targets?

    You are probably right about that! I had the same thought as I was dorking around with it during lunch. Although they pretty much know who are the soft targets already - schools, malls, theaters, etc. At worst it might let me know which retailer NOT to do business with.

    You say that like it's a bad thing. I have no problem with people making money from things they design and market. The download is free, so it wouldn't cost you anything if you did have a smart phone. What's the problem?

    The best feature is you can automatically send Eric Holder a text when your GPS blip enters a GFZ.

    There is also an app out there for Progressive Anti-gun idiots to out you with. That scares me more.

    This is not an app I have or will have loaded on my phone. Mine has the latest Crime Data in relation to my home or where I am going including Sex Predators. Just let it know your current location and it will start dumping objects on Google or iPhone Maps program around you and the Predators get pictures and full discreptions. The type of crime is also displayed with date and time reported.

    Depending on how well your area has been filled in, it can be helpful when figuring out where *not* to go when you're making plans.

    The point of the app is to note where gun-free zones (like schools and businesses) are located. The app can be helpful in deciding whether you want to patronize those places before you even get there.
