Texas: Mobile App Maps Anti-2A Businesses

posted on October 13, 2016

While much attention has been given to the importance of voting in November’s election—and rightly so—one app is helping Texas gun owners vote freedom first in another way: with their wallets. 

The “30.06 and 30.07 Information Resource”—named after sections of Texas law permitting businesses to ban concealed carry (30.06) and/or open carry (30.07)—was created in 2007 to provide Texans a centralized list of stores, restaurants and government buildings that have posted signs prohibiting armed self-defense. Formerly available only on the Web, the project’s success led to the creation of both iPhone and Android apps, which present the information in a mobile-friendly format and alert users when they are near an anti-gun location so they can take their business elsewhere. 

Pro-gun advocates have submitted thousands of entries and comments about locations all over Texas, helping users more easily plan their day while sending a powerful message to companies that spurn the Second Amendment and endanger their patrons. Here’s hoping this idea catches on in other states very soon.
