Fancy Shot Mapping For School Shootings

I swear everything nowadays needs a damn app.  Whoever came up with this in today’s gun fearing climate is a genius… I need to think of something which organizations will panic buy.  I have no idea what the cost per school this system is, but I think it’s safe to say it’s expensive (even though they say “low-cost”).  And yes you can put a price on something like this because like it says in the promotional video below “since 1990 over 200 people have died in schools because of active shooters”. So yea it’s not that big of a problem… yes it’s a disgusting problem to have, but not that big. If they would have spent their time and effort developing a “Teenage Smoking Detection System” which slapped the shit out of any kid to tried to light one up, that would literally save MILLIONS of lives, not just a handful per year.

About the Guardian Active Shooter Detection System:

You can check out more info on the shooter detection systems website if you care.

Guardian-Shooter-Detection-SystemUnless the school has on site law enforcement this isn’t as useful… but I suppose the police will know exactly where to go when they show up (if the shooter has fired a shot at his new present location).   And that there is the problem… this type of thing will be leaned on too heavily and end up getting some officers killed.  Just because shots were fired 20 seconds ago in room A on the West side of a building, it doesn’t mean the shooter isn’t on the East side of the building now ready to ambush the entry team.  Also this gets even more confusing and potentially useless if/when there are multiple shooters, timed explosive devices, etc…

Thoughts? Anyone want to bankroll the “Teenage Smoking Detection System” I want to invent? At least help share the cost on the auto-baby-powder on the hand sprinkling add-on? Maybe I should Kickstarter this… :P

  1. This junk didn’t help that often in Iraq and cost millions.
    How much is it going to cost to deploy in every school in America ?!

    Fear = Profit

  2. Yeah because schools are just sitting on stacks of cash ready to buy stuff! If they can’t afford metal detectors, modern door locking/release systems, uh, teachers, paras, computers, printers, proper network cabling, firewall updates, etc… why would they drop booku bucks on this crap so the police and faculty can now watch where the shooter is going to go and still do the same amount of damage. Don’t they realize that by the time they arrive, the gunman has done their work and likely offed themselves?

  3. Fucking dumb.

    How copy? Over.

  4. Copy all. The system was called “Boomerang” when I was over seas, and it was a worthless, inconsistent piece of technological shit no one ever asked for. Unless you’re dealing with an extremely retarded wants-to-shop-the-snackbar sniper type, they would’ve moved before the system got enough data to get their previous location right.

    Want to stop shooters? Have better kids with tougher skin and not complete bipedal fuck’tards, but that would require better parenting and it’s much easier to blame/ban a gun rather than ourselves.

  5. There’s already been an invention for schools to panic buy. It costs a hell of a lot less than this shot detection bull.

    It’s called the semiautomatic rifle.

    High five anyone?
