According to FOX News, a new Android app is asking users to expose the home addresses of gun owners and share the information with the world.

The website says, "The general guideline is that you should mark any location about which you have a gun related concern, while trying to provide enough extra information for others to make their own determination about safety." They go on to say that their goal is letting parents and the community mark sites with "potentially unsafe gun and gun owners".

In a review of the app Levi Russell wrote, "This is dangerous and invasive Dangerous because it allows criminals to determine where they might steal firearms….you are an accomplice to any firearm theft that will occur due to the existence of this app
