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.

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. 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.

Jake, you claim victimhood and that all you wanted was to discuss ideas. Well, on numerous posts I requested that you do just that, and rebut my posts. All you ever did in reply was, yet again claim victimhood and regurgitate your tripe. You have been called a fraud because that is what you are. You piously claimed that only you are the arbiter of what is reasonable. We have on many levels explained how you are not the only voice nor our master, and pointed out the facts, logic and reason as to why we believe in our Constution… Read more »

Jake, yet another verbose post that again rails against our rights and you again play victim and fail to discuss or rebut my post. You claim you want discussion of ideas, but you don’t actually do such. You just want to rant about how you are right. You also appear to lack the ability to comprehend our rights and the four simple words that explain clearly to all who aren’t fools, “shall be infringed”. All the laws thus far have failed to prevent murder and other crimes, but one more regulation/law/concession will solve the crime problem? Address my last post… Read more »

And back in reality… while you are correct, the real world will take your guns and put you in prison for what is absolutely constitutional. Maybe after a million dollars in court costs, you can get your name clear, but still probably not your guns back. Not a risk I want to take. Pass the reciprocity as a stop gap, and keep pressure up for the restoration of our Constitutional rights in full.
While we work back to that, we need steps to protect us from the leftists running several of the states we have to deal with and move through.

Jake, you have yet to discuss any ideas I have presented, even when I have repeatedly requested you to do so. You repeatedly leave the same verbose bs that we have all rebutted with facts. You are free to post “ideas”, however, what part of “shall not be infringed” are you having difficulty with? Any limit, ban, compromise, concession or any other word you want to use to abrogate our rights is an infringement. No, we can’t allow our rights to be infringed upon any further. All we have done is concede and then the anti-rights people just want more… Read more »

Well folks, Team Troll has been kicked off the field and no longer allowed to play so I’m going to invoke a time honored tradition, among some, of shunning them on this post, and one one other, for future comments. I don’t know what WildBill, OldVet and others will do but I’d point out that when you deny the trolls a venue and make it an empty room, except for them, they tend to dry up and blow away like dust.

Adios guys, see you on another topic.

Oh oh, two flags on the play against Team Troll. One for untruthfulness on the field and the other for not answering direct questions. Sorry Team Troll but you’ve forfeited the game to Team Constitutional Values. See you after your coach, @JVC receives counseling.

Jake, your feigned victimhood is pathetic. The only “attacks” you suffered were differences in opinion. You chose to claim victimhood rather than rebuttal, believing your emotions rather than facts and logic would “win the day”. You have been exposed as a fraud because you have been unwilling to debate facts. You have never rebutted any of my posts, except to claim victimhood and your self-perceived supremacy over us.

What a crock of shit.. Anyone reading what I said in my posts can use COMMON SENSE and see that I was the one with differing OPINIONS of your and I have CLEARLY explained why. Don’t try changing the narrative because all the posts are available to read. You know you and your little buddies are the real trolls here.. But even worse, you are all the biggest threat to the rights we have under the 2nd Amendment. You lack of listening and debating other opinions is an extremely dangerous thing to all of us. You think YOU are right… Read more »

Molon Labe We ain’t giving up anything jake. The dems will do what dems have always done, and that’ll never change.

The best way to foil the dems plan is NOT GIVE INTO THEM. That is our ONLY recourse at this point.
otherwise we’ll lose ALL of our guns, because THAT IS THE DEMS LONG TERM PLAN.
If you want to concede go ahead, but I’d rather die on my feet than live on my knees.

At this point, we only have that choice as you put it.. After what the President said yesterday about due process AFTER seizure and after the democrats posted the text of the law as they want it with full on semi auto everything ban, finding a middle ground is no longer possible even though I had hoped it might work to reduce the ‘pressure’ from the left on this issue. If they were able to get Trump to change that position and others.. we are going to lose. Make no mistake about it. It is becoming clear.. Somehow they are… Read more »

The problem with.most of you, especially the one calling himself Jake is that it was impossible to have a logical discussion because: 1. He avoided answering questions he didn’t want to answer and diverted to something else (a common tactic among Liberals) or 2. He gave an answer that was a complete fabrication of the truth and, when confronted with the truth, claimed he… Read more »

You can’t because you do not have a VALID argument against COMMON SENSE and responsibility when it comes to those of us that support the 2nd Amendment.

@Jake, Here is one lie: “So you even make up shit and lie because you don’t have a true valid argument?” We did not make anything up. We took valid arguments from the historic and legal record of debates about the Second Amendment. We asked a few simple questions. You refused to answer. You challenged our credibility, so we provided our credentials, but you did not reciprocate. Here is one of your baseless facts: “…Talk behind my back…” Pretty hard to talk behind your back on a website. Here is another baseless fact: “… ANY common sense…” There is no… Read more »

@Jake QOUTED “You sit there spouting your crap as all literal.. and I have said numerous times, I HIGHLY DOUBT the founding fathers intended for the 2A to sit there and never grow with society.” QOUTED Is that why the 2nd A states that :” the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed” ? LOL FWIW… if we continue to delete/amend the Bill of Rights as determined by the Founding Fathers, we’ll soon end up with NO RIGHTS at all. Which is where the liberal socialist progressive marxist democrats are in a helluva hurry… Read more »

IF you had read all my posts, it would have been clear that I did not and do not advocated in ANY way removing, infringing on, or limiting anyone from their 2A rights EXCEPT for violent felons and mental nutcases. But instead of reading all the posts to see what I actually said, you jump on what a few others spout.. where they are twisting what I said to fit their own skewed sense of reality. What I have SAID and maintained this entire argument is that gun owners need to use common sense and responsibility. Once I said those… Read more »

Vanns, yes, apparently they have found this site. It’s amusing that they even post here, since the regular posters are typically pro-USA, pro-Constitution, and pro-rights, the site itself, based on the site name and commentaries and stories posted on it are clearly pro-rights. However, they serve as useful targets to sharpen and hone our ideas on our rights. I have learned a lot from the site contents and the comments from both sides. The anti-rights posts have taught me that they have no facts, reason nor logic to their arguments against the USA, our Constitution, and our guaranteed rights protected… Read more »

@V and H, The low level paid propagandists think that they have found a gold mine of responses. Rather than jumping through hoops to produce an income for them, I am currently conducting a one man letter writing campaign to pressure my president, senators, and congressman to decline the DNC ploy of any gun control, which will, surely, divide them from their voting base.

Grundy, Jake did not want a discussion, and Vanns and WB were not the only ones posting comments rebutting him and other anti-rights people. If Jake wanted a discussion, he would have responded to my numerous posts that were rebutting his exceedingly verbose posts, and the numerous times I requested a rebuttal. He clearly only wanted everyone to agree with his anti-rights stance – we don’t. We believe in our Constitution and in our rights as guaranteed by that document on which our country is based.

Bullshit. Conversation is DIFFERING OPINIONS is one thing. Being attacked outright because my opinions don’t match yours, is not a discussion. AND THAT is the mistake you are all making and why we already have 11 states that are truly anti gun.. Because you can’t seem to get it through your thick heads that you can be and stand and act like a tough guy all you want… but liberals are doing an end around you all because you refuse to even bother looking at the ENTIRE situation. Mark my words… IF liberals ever again get the presidency, the senate,… Read more »

I put forth that the main reason we have 11 states that are anti gun, is because our government officials have allowed illegal aliens &, criminal illegal aliens from mexico , to overun our US borders to the tune of 11 million of ’em, and have allowed muslim extremists from the middle east to be shipped here totally unvetted (by obama) and have allowed socialist marxists teachers and professors to teach our young people in our schools and colleges as well as run for office in our government.. The rest are just knee jerk thinking people who cannot think logically… Read more »

The “knee jerk reaction” that my posts with MY opinions brought on? I don’t advocate in any way restricting or infringing on the 2A and I have made that clear. But I DO advocate DISCUSSION and ideas that might show everyone else we gun owners understand the issues and have the common sense and responsibility to… Read more »

Jay, easy access to ARs? I believe the guy did buy his firearm at an FFL and did pass the NICS background check. There are many other tools that could be even more deadly. You state that ARs are more effective at killing that vehicles? Mnay more were killed in one attack in France with a truck. Easy access to ARs in the USA, then why didn’t the man who ran over all those pedestrians in NYC use a rental truck rather than the “easy to obtain” AR? Why are over 1,600 homicides by hands, feet an fists, if ARs… Read more »

Yes, you are correct, even though full was still legal then, the killer still didn’t use that “easy to obtain” weapon, which just proves my point.
