General FAQs

What resources does USCCA provide to the public?

The USCCA is proud to provide responsibly armed Americans with the industry-leading self-defense education, training and legal protection they need to protect their families with confidence.

As a member of the public, you can take advantage of our online communities on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Twitter.

If it’s self-defense knowledge, gun reviews or even just some great new concealed carry gear that you’re looking for, you can check out our USCCA Resources Page. There you’ll discover hundreds of hours of industry-leading education, invaluable guides and references, and high-quality USCCA merchandise!

Additionally, the USCCA’s Community Giving Program provides free lifesaving self-defense training and concealed carry resources to communities all over the country. When you activate the self-defense education, training and protection of your USCCA Membership, you’re joining a community that provides public service efforts, such as the donation of educational materials to local libraries, preparing teachers to protect our students and taking domestic violence support groups to the range.

Is my information protected if I am a USCCA Member?

Your information is ALWAYS kept confidential when you join the USCCA or sign up for any of our free educational materials.

Does the USCCA sell email addresses to other companies?

The USCCA never sells email addresses or information of any kind to other companies. Protecting the privacy or our members and supporters is a top priority.

Is my information going to be given to the government?

The USCCA is not a government-run nor government-affiliated entity and does not share your information with anyone. However, the U.S. government already has a list of everyone who holds a concealed carry permit or who has purchased a firearm through an FFL. In the event of the government subpoenaing records, the USCCA will work to protect your information to the best of our ability. We will not readily turn this information over to anyone.

Does the USCCA charge tax?

The USCCA complies with all state sales tax laws and may apply sales tax where applicable.

If your state has a tax that is applicable to USCCA goods and services, we automatically calculate and apply it to your purchase after you enter your address in the cart.

If your state’s tax laws change, you may see those new tax charges in the middle of a subscription or membership.

Does the USCCA provide concealed carry insurance?

With the most comprehensive self-defense education, training and legal protection available to responsibly armed Americans, a USCCA Membership protects you in ways that concealed carry insurance can’t. Concealed carry insurance companies may simply provide you with a card and a phone number. The United States Concealed Carry Association, however, is fiercely committed to your freedom and independence. We work tirelessly to protect both through your USCCA Membership. A USCCA Membership provides responsibly armed Americans with benefits you simply can’t find anywhere else. This includes our Community Giving Program and exclusive member discounts and perks.

What is the USCCA’s position on LGBT rights?

The USCCA believes all individuals, regardless of race, color, religion, age, national origin or ancestry, sex, pregnancy, veteran status, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, economic status, political affiliation and/or any other characteristic protected by federal, state or local laws, have the right to effective self-defense. Along with the right to self-defense, the USCCA further believes it is the responsibility of every armed citizen to maintain a level of training that will insure any self-defense actions are carried out within the bounds of applicable laws as set forth by our elected representatives. The USCCA further believes that all persons, regardless of race, color, religion, age, national origin or ancestry, sex, pregnancy, veteran status, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, economic status, political affiliation and/or any other characteristic protected by federal, state or local laws, should have the ability to receive the best legal counsel available during any investigation into a use of force for self-defense. All responsibly armed citizens should be treated fairly and equally.
