A new website, "Friend or Foe
," is sparking a "miniature gun rights campaign," reports Opposing Views
. It allows gun owners to easily distinguish between concealed-carry-friendly businesses and those that shudder at the thought.
The site lets users review local businesses and place a virtual red push pin on establishments that are "foes," while reserving green pins for those deemed friendlies. According to site founder Chris Walsh, Friend or Foe was never intended to "persuade businesses to change their policies" (or persuade lawmakers to take up the cause, if applicable), but he's certainly OK with the idea of widespread social pressure to boost gun rights.
"Friend or Foe could stand to be a catalyst for change in the gun control debate," reports Opposing Views
. "Gun control advocates could just as easily use the website to reward businesses that ban guns and boycott those that don't."
