U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Tim Schmidt, the Founder & President of the United States Concealed Carry Association, is today responding to an op-ed at the New York Times written by retired liberal Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, which essentially lays bare the overarching goal of the anti-gun movement: A complete repeal of the 2nd Amendment and stripping Americans of their right to self-defense.
“It is disappointing that a retired associate justice of the United States Supreme Court would support a measure that would effectively end our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms,” said Tim Schmidt, Founder & President of the United States Concealed Carry Association. “While we understand the push for something to be done to stop violence at the hands of criminals, the Second Amendment exists to protect lives, and should never be repealed. The only thing to stop a bad person from using a gun to kill is a responsibly armed citizen.”
In response to the Florida high school shooting, The White House vowed to help provide “rigorous firearms training” to some schoolteachers, reported the Washington Post, which is something that has long been endorsed by Tim Schmidt, president of the U.S. Concealed Carry Association.
The USCCA has helped train tens of thousands of Americans become responsibly armed Americans. In fact, at USCCA’s annual expo in Louisville April 13th to 15th there will be several training seminars on topics such as Mitigating the Active Shooter Threat in Our Schools, Protecting Our Places of Worship: Church Safety and Security Training, and Countering the Mass Shooter Threat.
