Posted! Carry List Anti – Gun Locations

This app is useful for pinpointing the places you want to avoid!

Or at least, it will let you know places you should be aware of.

It lets you know where concealed carry is not permitted.

A licensed permit holder or a resident of a constitutional carry state can usually legally carry their firearm in any location other than statutory “no carry” locations such as schools, Gov. Buildings and in businesses that are posted prohibiting firearms. This provides a list of those Posted Anti-Gun businesses.

Before making hotel accommodations, dinner reservations or plans for a night on the town, check this app to ensure you won’t have to disarm in the parking lot or return home if you do not have a place to safely store your firearm. If you know beforehand, you can avoid the places that prohibit carry, or you can leave your firearm at home if you must attend.

But you can also add pro-gun alternatives. (And who doesn’t want that?) You can search for gun friendly businesses and even add new ones to the list every time you come across one.

This app has one more feature which is amazing. You can take action. With the app, you can call or email the listed business and let them know your thoughts. It’s a great way to get involved in the pro-gun movement.
