Developer "backing off" unsafe gun owner tracking app


Earlier this month, we told you about a Gun Geo Marker App that was released.

It invited users to mark homes of quote "suspected unsafe gun owners."

It now looks like the developer is backing off the project.

Local gun owners and police told us they had concerns about the app - which used crowd-sourced information.

In a blog post - developer Brett Stalbaum admits there were issues with hacking... and people putting in false info.
