Outrage of the Week: New App Targets Gun Owners

Outrage of the Week: New App Targets Gun Owners
This week’s outrage comes to us from a rather unlikely source:  the Google Play app store.  The new app is called the Gun Geo Marker, and encourages users to “geolocate dangerous guns and owners” in their communities. According to Google Play, “Geolocation means marking dangerous sites on the App’s map so that you and others can be aware of the risks in your neighborhood.”  Think about that for a minute.  The purpose of the app–other than sensationalism and profit–is to encourage people to anonymously “flag” locations in their community they subjectively deem “dangerous” and to make that information as public as possible.  The probability for abuse and the certainty of inaccurate “reporting” cannot be overstated.  What’s to keep people from marking any location for any reason at all?  Nothing.  The practice is not only a serious invasion of privacy, but would also be just as dangerous and irresponsible as publishing the names of concealed-carry permit holders in local papers.  The app could enable thieves to target and steal firearms from law-abiding gun owners, while conversely advertising that other residences are “gun free” and therefore easy targets for criminals. 

Illinois: Gun advocates push state to hurry up
Despite Tuesday’s dramatic concealed carry victory at the Statehouse, gun rights advocates headed back into federal court Wednesday to object to the pace at which the state intends to carry out the new law.Downstate gun owner Mary Shepard and the Illinois State Rifle Association filed paperwork in two Downstate federal courts, seeking authority to begin carrying weapons now rather than wait during the 270 day implementation period they say the state intends to follow.

Colorado: Two compromises on ammo magazines reached
The first salvo in a legal battle to block Colorado’s new limits on gun ammunition magazines fizzled Wednesday, but sheriffs, firearm dealers and other opponents still aim to have the law declared unconstitutional.Both sides in the dispute about the new gun law reached a last minute agreement to clarify certain provisions of the law, which limits ammunition magazines to 15 rounds.

Governors of gun friendly states woo Conn. gunmakers

Rick Perry is a headliner in a new and equally crowded campaign.Perry and governors representing other gun friendly states are aggressively attempting to lure gunmakers, suppliers and other vendors away from Connecticut and the surrounding region, which for generations has drawn much of its identity from the firearms industry.

Illinois: Urge Your State Senator to Defeat Governor’s Amendatory Veto on Concealed Carry Legislation TODAY

So Much for Zero Tolerance
We’ve been reporting with great frequency on ridiculous cases involving over-zealous school officials misinterpreting and wrongly enforcing “zero-tolerance” rules. In March, and again last month, we reported on one of the most outrageous cases–that of a seven-year-old Baltimore, Md. student who was suspended for two days for the nefarious act of shaping a breakfast pastry into what his teacher thought looked like a gun.  Yes, his teacher thought a breakfast pastry was enough of a danger to take the little boy directly to the principal’s office for immediate discipline, to include a suspension and a permanent record.  Last month we also reported on a remarkably severe “zero-tolerance” case in Calvert County, Md., where a 5-year-old brought a cowboy-style, orange-safety-tipped toy cap gun onto his school bus to show to his friend, who had allegedly brought a water gun on the bus a day earlier.  As a result, the kindergartner was questioned by school officials for more than two hours before he wet his pants and his mother was called.  How long does it take to ask a 5-year-old a few questions?  His sister–a first-grader–was also questioned, and the little boy was threatened with a 10-day suspension–which would  keep him out of classes the rest of the school year–and the prospect of the matter becoming a part of the his permanent school record.

Woman captures burglar at gunpoint, WTVG, Toledo, Ohio May 16, 2013
Just before 5 a.m., Betty Collins received a phone call from her boyfriend, who was on his way to work, warning her of a suspicious person he had spotted outside her home. Having been the victim of vehicle burglaries on the last two mornings, Collins retrieved a .357 revolver and watched the outside of her home. The suspicious looking man eventually made his way up to Collins’ door and attempted to kick it in, to which Collins responded by shouting at the criminal, “Get off my porch. I have a gun. I will shoot you.” When the would-be intruder did not comply, Collins opened the door, aimed the revolver at the burglar and ordered, “put your face in the dirt and you’re gonna stay there.” The criminal obeyed and Collins held him at gunpoint until police could arrive. Collins later spoke to the media regarding the incident, remarking, “That’s what the Second Amendment’s for.”
