The Second Amendment to the US Constitution provides for the right of US citizens to bear arms. This Android Book & Reference app provides you with an abundance of information and knowledge on CCW laws, Open Carry laws, Transport Rules, and Attorney Generals’ contact information for all 50 states — and the District of Columbia, Washington D.C. Being a former police officer, I was a bit skeptical of the ability for any application (iOS or Android OS) to accurately provide gun law information that is updated for all 50 states. This app appears to do so on both platforms and does it beautifully. Legal Heat has a super easy-to-use interface with a slide wheel to select the state that you are looking for specific information on, with an appropriate bullet rating system from 1-5 — with 5 being the most gun friendly.
The categories of information already mentioned all use the slide wheel function, except for the Attorney Generals information which is a long page with state flags for state identification. When selecting any of the gun law informational tabs after selecting your state you will be provided the legal laws for that state. To my surprise the documents for several states were said to be updated and asked if I would like to update them before viewing, which shows the developers have put some time to make this app super accurate. Optionally, you can also download all 50 states’ Concealed Carry laws with a tap of the button when inside any of the gun law tabs.
I am a gun proponent, not a zealot, but I found a few things interesting when viewing gun laws inside this Android application. The gun laws in Illinois and District of Columbia (Washington D.C.) are so strict that they fall under a rate of no bullets, but rather a grave stone and a check of the laws show no apparent rights for citizens to carry a CCW. Now, one would think that States that adopt these strict gun control measures would have less crime, but guess what? That is not the case. A factual check will show you that the gun crimes, such as murder, are out of control in Chicago and Washington D.C. I am thankful to live in Florida and be in a 4 bullet friendly state, and a believer in the 2nd Amendment, especially in these trying times. For you iPhone owners, there is an iOS version that you can find here: Legal Heat – 50 State Guide to Firearm Law. Do you have any opinion on the gun laws, apps, or lack thereof? If so leave us a comment telling us what is on your mind. Check out our other Android app reviews. Crazy Mike
