    Gun Geo Marker Concedes Defeat

    I pulled up the Gun Geo Marker app this morning to see if there had been any activity in my area. Instead of the app, there was a statement by the maker claiming it was "just an experiment".

    Of course, he had to label all of the people opposed to the invasion of their privacy as "the rabid anti gun-safety crowd".

    Well, we know this will not be the last attempt at a gun marking project. Others will try and it will all depend on how reliable their information is. In this case, there was no verification, so all we needed to do was load up millions of false marks. Furthers, the app was pretty useless since you could not move the map to look at any other area except the one you were at.

    The real threat is in liberal controlled states like NY, CT, MA, & CA where the antisocial want CCW permit holders names to be public records.

    Geolocate Dangerous Guns and Owners | a project of the walkingtools.net laboratory
    It is two things. First, it is a speculative design experiment “in the wild” that is to suss out what the parameters of a successful gun safety app might be. For example, the experiment showed that there is great potential for “local use only” mapping applications, or using GPS to constrain use of mapping interfaces only to the place in which one stands. This has applications for public data of a sensitive nature as it disallows arbitrary global browsing, keeping all information into its local context. Also, the ontology for marking dangerous guns owners feels like an excellent start. An aspect of the project which did not work – nor did I expect it to in this particular case – was the use of anonymous marking of sites. Simply stated, the project suffered numerous hacking attacks that filled the database with false info, not to mention that anti-gun-safety types have also used the app itself as a tool for mischief. It is both sad to see, but also something that I grudgingly admit I have a certain level of respect for as an electronic activist myself. The issues of hacking and intentionally false data might be solved by an organization with sufficient resources through using authentication and some type of verification regimen to ensure the data is of high quality.

    Secondly, the App was a honeypot. As a gun owner myself, I am all too aware of a smaller component of the community that sees any attempt at improving gun safety as an affront to their second amendment rights. Reasonable regulations that do not interfere with anyone’s second amendment rights – such as universal background checks and trigger locks when guns are unattended in the presence of children – are needed to help abate the gun violence epidemic in this country. But some places in the United States seem committed to going in the opposite direction, as in Florida where a law was passed preventing medical doctors from asking about gun safety in the home as they might about swimming pool safety. So, the project is also a culture-jamming exercise intended to draw out earnest expressions from the radical anti-gun-safety community, expressions that will now become part of a second phase of the project which involves aesthetic manifestations. The app itself will remain online for a time so that people can play with the user interface, after which it will morph into a purely “documentation” application about the project.

    Looking at this developer's other offerings shows he's really not a major contributor to any software market. Two or three useless apps... that's it.

    WRONG.

    The gun violence epidemic is caused by criminals and gangbangers.

    Enacting more ridiculous laws, restricting our rights and punishing law-abiding citizens, WILL NEVER stop criminals and gangbangers.

    This guy is an idiot.

    Says he's a gun owner?

    That looks like an incredibly dangerous application in terms of privacy and inaccurate or malicious data.

    His statements are laced with fundamental errors in logic and loaded with emotionally charged and vague terms. anti-gun-safety? Dangerous guns? Reasonable? The assumption that MDs should be involved with swimming pool and gun safety.

    The fact that just anybody could label a household as dangerous based on nothing but opinion, or worse, malicious intent, is reminiscent of the witch trials.

    I have always believed this type of thinking came from willful denial of facts and logic. I am beginning to think they really believe all this nonsense due to some genetic flaw.
