Concealed Carry Success

West Bend, WI –-(Ammoland.com)- The United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA), a Wisconsin-based organization providing education, training and self-defense insurance to responsible American gun owners, was featured on CBS News’ 60 Minutes this past Sunday on a segment about the effort in Congress to pass reciprocity for concealed carry licenses.

The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act has already sailed through the House of Representatives and has the full support of President Trump. It now awaits action in the U.S. Senate where it has roughly 40 co-sponsors.

United States Concealed Carry Association President Tim Schmidt discussed USCCA’s support for the legislation and the importance of protecting law-abiding citizens with 60 Minutes host Steve Kroft in a segment which can be found here. “The aim of this bill is to simply allow responsibly armed Americans to be able to travel and continue to defend their families,” Schmidt said.

BACKGROUND:

The United States Concealed Carry Association has been urging lawmakers in Congress to follow through on their promise to pass national concealed carry reciprocity, which would ensure that concealed carry permits issued in one state would be considered valid in the other 49 states. U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) introduced the Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act through S.446 last year and Congressman Richard Hudson (R-NC) did the same through the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 in H.R.446. Both bills would ensure that concealed carry permits issued in one state would be respected in them all.
