The Daily Caller
Illinois became the last state to lift its ban on the concealed carry of firearms. The state legislature voted to override Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn's veto of initial legislation to allow and regulate concealed carry.

The app bills itself as merely a tool to collect information, but it was hit with a firestorm of negative reviews and comments from people worried that it could do more harm than good.
