SafetoCarry and OK2A Announce Alliance
Benefits to OK2A include recognition of corporate sponsors as OK2A Gold Star members in the SafeToCarry app and a free door sign indicating the business's status as both a "SafeToCarry"
For SafeToCarry, the alliance provides a mechanism to recognize pro-second amendment businesses via an outside organization. This recognition will be integrated into the app via a new feature to "badge" the location with the OK2A Gold Star designation. The alliance also provides a mechanism for app users to quickly access information about Oklahoma gun laws and Frequently Asked Questions about legal carry. This information could be very useful to have in many situations where rapid access is key to protecting one's rights. The end result is that SafeToCarry becomes an important tool for every citizen interested in legal carry.
SafeToCarry was founded in 2012 by two Oklahoma entrepreneurs. The company introduced its software and website to the world in January 2013 and has grown rapidly ever since. The database now has over 11,000 locations and thousands of users with daily growth. SafeToCarry has been featured on The Survival Podcast and as an early sponsor of the Practical Tactical Podcast.
Apps are available for both iOS and Android devices from the App and Google Play Stores (Direct links are available on the SafeToCarry website). Most functionality is also available at the SafeToCarry.com website as well.
OK2A was founded in 2009 because of a lack of consistent voice for the people at the State Capitol for issues such as open carry, nullification, etc. OK2A has stood strong on behalf of the average Oklahoman and in three short years achieved what had been so elusive, the passage of the open carry law in 2012. OK2A was the primary group behind it, working to negotiate behind the scenes to ensure its passage. In total, OK2A has helped usher almost 30 different measures through the process in just three years, while stopping 5 bad bills from becoming law. OK2A pledges to continue to push for greater liberty for gun owners in Oklahoma and to stand in the gap to protect the gun rights of every Oklahoman against the federal government's attempts to infringe on our rights.
