What is the Gun Geo Marker?
The App is in part a documentary, and in part a disabled demo version of the original experiment.
Our app rating is actually a source of pride in this context. The App was pilloried by a paranoid community of deluded gun rights activists in July 2013; deluded because the gun owning community in the United States shoots itself in the foot - and endangers all of our 2nd amendment rights - when it comes out against reasonable solutions to the gun violence epidemic. This includes Apps that might allow it to better allow gun owners regulate themselves, foment better safety practices, and prevent unnecessary gun deaths. But in short, the community instead decided that this App was a threat and spammed it up with useless info that effectively disabled it for sincere users. How many lives are being lost due to the congressional equivalent of this obstruction? Such as when the U.S. Senate rejected reasonable and constitutional universal background checks in April of 2013?

Included is a very interesting collection of voice messages to the project developers. http://gungeomarker.org/x-flares
The App is now in full documentary version, including links to audio from some of those who did not support it.
