New App lets users report "unsafe" gun owners

Exposing potentially unsafe gun owners. There's now an app for that.

And it's already causing quite the uproar.

That's because it's a cellphone app that allows users to tag the homes of gun owners they deem reckless, and then share that information with the world.

That raises the question: is the app a safety precaution or an invasion of privacy?

    After quite some time, I have come to the conclusion that those who hate guns and who are afraid of them are the ones who we should be concerned about. They are projecting what they would do with a gun and how they would behave if they owned one. Gun owners, on the other hand, who love guns and respect them and are unafraid of them, are the good guys. Millions of good citizens own guns and in general, there is no really problems that are any different than any other machine or implement.
    So perhaps this app will point us to both the good guys and the bad guys.
