Yeah, I'm not sure I buy into the premises of "mapping" LTC for "safe" areas. I won't be adding my info into the app, or even downloading it. If you are an LTC holder, why would you need to to know the locations of others? Conversely I don't want those who wish to take what's not theirs, to even have a general vicinity to track homes with guns. Not a good idea JMHO.

Doesn't "broadcasting your [concealed] carry status" constitute an oxymoron? Or at least a paradox? :eek6

Either this is a practical joke, or there's an underemployed programmer out there looking for solutions to problems nobody had in the first place...... :totap:

Hillary Clinton thinks this is a great idea!
The left lies about everything. Truth is a liberal value, and truth is a conservative value, but it has never been a left-wing value. People on the left say whatever advances their immediate agenda. Power is their moral lodestar; therefore, truth is always subservient to it. - Dennis Prager

And the long term ramifications......Anyone playing along can figure out your house, your place of employment. When you're not at home because you're at your place of employment, or you just stopped at a theater, on and on. Now you don't even need a spotter to case the joint, just follow the cute little dots. <fake radio squawk> "Ten minutes out, they and spouse are leaving the movies." <fake radio squawk>

I went over to the link and read the article, then the comments below. First, never in a million years would I voluntarily sign up to be tracked wherever I go because I'm licensed to carry a handgun. Not only because of the possibility of the government getting or using the data, but criminal types as well. Secondly, because the person representing the app really came across as a jerk (best word I can get by with here).

:iagree:

I had the same impression of the guy. Not real sure what his motives are, or why he thought this would be a good idea, that LTC holders would embrace. It sure isn't for my peace of mind, I don't care if I am the only LTC holder for miles around, no one is better suited to protect me than me. JMHO

Let me see, I have made a conscious decision not to OC but to conceal carry because I really don't want anyone to know I have a gun on me.

Nope, don't think I will sign up for an app that would let who knows who know where I am and that I am carrying!!!

Ok....so if a person plans on robbing Walmart...or shooting up a Walmart....let's see....

we have one gun over there....another one next to the eggs...only two more but they are in automotive....so....jewelry is clear! There's the target!

I don't know how much the creator of the ap spent to get it up and running but I predict he will regret the wasted expenditure.
