U.S.A.-(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, will be featured on 60 Minutes for a segment with CBS News this coming Sunday, February 11, 2018.

The House has passed the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act that would allow Americans licensed to carry concealed firearms in their own states to bring those weapons legally into other states. Steve Kroft takes a look at this common-sense legislation that the U.S. Senate could pass and send to the President for his signature. His report will be broadcast on the next edition of 60 Minutes, Sunday, Feb. 11 at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT.

The interview, which will air across the nation, will feature expert commentary from Tim Schmidt, the Founder & President of The United States Concealed Carry Association on gun rights and legislation moving through Congress.


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. The House bill has passed the U.S. House of Representatives. Both bills would ensure that concealed carry permits issued in one state would be respected in them all.

60 Minutes has won more Emmy Awards than any other primetime broadcast, including a special Lifetime Achievement Emmy. It has also won virtually every other broadcast journalism award, plus 15 Peabody awards for excellence in television broadcasting. 60 Minutes was created in 1968 by Don Hewitt and premiered on CBS September 24th of that year.

    1. Jake, you have added nothing to the discourse on this topic, except for the same extremely verbose diatribe railing and ranting against lawful firearm owners, and crying about ring a victim.

    2. I’ve followed this from the very beginning and I’ll make one comment only. The person calling himself Jake is a fraud, both in his service and his experience. He disgraces those who actually work to serve others and the country. For whatever it’s worth I suggest we all move on. There are far more important things to discuss.

      1. @TennX, Avec pleasure. You are right, of course, but I must reserve prerogative to respond should Jake attempt to misrepresent the issues involved, here.

      2. F*** YOU.

        And for the record, I was retired in 2014 due to my 7th COMBAT injury, United States Navy. I served over 30+ years along with being a part time sworn deputy sheriff. I am now a 70% physical, 100% rated IU as a service connected V/A disabled Veteran. As far as I am concerned, you are nothing but a coward and a piece of s*** that probably has no clue what it takes to choose to stand up and walk the line..

        You people make me sick. The fact you pounce on me because in some areas I have a different OPINION is just insulting. And then you come out and make comments like you just did about my service… that is even lower then I thought you would go.

        You people cannot even come up with a rational argument from your own perspective.. so now you lash out at me because you cannot argue against the reasonable options I posed in my opinion and in the discussion.. Pretty sad for a bunch here that are SUPPOSED to be adults AND responsible gun owners..

        We have truly lost the republic I and others served for.. and sadly some of you here lead the way in its continued decline when you cannot even hold a discussion and debate over different opinions.

        1. @Jake, The rational argument from our perspective, that we have stated many times, is that what you suggest is an unconstitutional infringement. How odd that you have not picked up on that with so many saying it, so often. By the way what was your MOS?

          1. @Jake, I have been following the discussions but have stayed out of commenting because you are up against W. Bill and Vanns40 both are true patriots and very concerned about losing our 2A rights. You bark up the wrong tree, maybe because you have been in the Navy so long that you do not know how to think for yourself without having to take an order. Anyway, if you think lengthy mandatory training will get anyone anyplace I agree it will. It will give the anti gunners all the fuel they need for their fire that is headed toward taking our 2A and our guns. An old saying: if you give them an inch they will take a mile. I do not know of any state that will give a permit without training. Anyway, that is my two cents and I stand with my brothers that oppose your ideas.
