Gun advocates and Second Amendment supporters in the state of Texas now can search for, and add, businesses that are unfriendly to the Second Amendment to a website and phone app.
The website, Texas3006.com has thousands of entries and more than 10,000 users.
Russell Jones, the founder of the website began creating the website back in 2007 because he noticed that Texas concealed handgun license holders “lacked a centralized location for reporting and retrieving businesses and other facilities that deny our right to defend both ourselves and our families from criminals; the same criminals that by definition don’t care what the laws say,” he told Breitbart Texas.
“This is not a for-profit venture. We are in it to help the community because it’s important to know both who supports the Second Amendment and who allows us to protect ourselves and our families,” Jones said.
A number of venues are included in the categories section when searching for what places are unfriendly to the Second Amendment. They include: bar, entertainment, financial, gas station, military, government, grocery stores, gyms, housing, restaurants, parks and several others.
The website also has a “Wall of Shame” where several businesses such as Chevron, Shell and Sprouts Farmers Market have dozens of 30.06 entries.
30.06 is a part of the Texas penal code that involves the trespassing of a licensed holder of a concealed handgun.
Allen told Breitbart Texas that Second Amendment supporters have made the website “what it is today by submitting thousands of entries and comments about businesses restricting our right to self defense all across Texas.”
“In Texas there are three different signs that restrict a License to Carry holder from carrying their handgun into a place of business. They are a 30.06 sign, a 30.07 sign, and a 51% sign,” the website says in their “Signs” section.
“Signs that are not 30.06, 30.07, or 51% such as “Gunbuster” or “No Guns Allowed” signs, should NOT be submitted!”, the website says. “Newsletters, verbal notification, or other types of notices should NOT be submitted! If they don’t have a sign, don’t submit!”
Updates can be made if a business or venue takes the signs down.
“Texas Carry is proud to work with Texas3006.com. They inform our members of anti-self protection businesses so that we can spend our money elsewhere. Any business that discriminates does not deserve our dollars.” Terry Holcomb Sr., founder of Texas Carry told Breitbart Texas.
