USCCA Underlines Importance Of Firearms Training & Self Defense Education During Difficult Times
USCCA President Discusses Second Amendment Awakening That Is Sweeping The Nation Amidst Heightened Unrest & Uncertainty
WEST BEND, WI – Throughout the continued civil unrest across the country – whether in Kenosha, Portland, St. Louis or elsewhere – it is critical that all Americans have a sense of security and the ability to protect themselves and those around them when faced with a variety of situations. The USCCA – which is the largest and fastest growing organization in the country focused on providing self-defense education, training and legal protection for more than 450,000 responsible American gun owners – is actively working for those who exercise their Constitutional right to self-protection while encouraging all responsible gun owners, particularly first-time purchasers, to take the appropriate education and training courses.
In case you missed it, USCCA President and Founder Tim Schmidt joined Stephanie Hamill, host of 'In Focus' on One American News Network, noting, “[W]e’ve seen millions and millions… of new gun owners across the country… just by owning a gun doesn’t make you proficient with it. You need to have good training and education so you know what you can and can't do... We are here to create responsible firearm owners.”
For the eighth consecutive month in a row, there have been record firearm related background checks. The month of August saw over 3.11 million background checks by the FBI – setting the record for the most checks in the month of August to date. This comes as more and more Americans across the nation are understanding their Second Amendment rights – even causing shortages of supply in some areas – amidst growing uncertainty due to COVID-19 and civil unrest that continues across the nation.
