Tim Schmidt joins Liz Wheeler on The Tipping Point to discuss National Reciprocity
USCCA Calls On Congressional Leadership to Bring National Reciprocity Legislation to a Vote
September 16th, 2017
West Bend, WI – Founder and CEO of the United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA), Tim Schmidt, joins One American News Network on The Tipping Point with Liz Wheeler to urge Congress to vote on the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017.
According to Schmidt’s latest Op-Ed, a new Wall Street Journal / NBC News poll shows that 48% of American households now own a firearm. This number is up twelve points in the last two years.
He also states, “The National Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 was introduced by U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) and U.S. Representative Richard Hudson (R-NC), to create uniform recognition of concealed carry permits. With American gun ownership increasing, this legislation is more relevant than ever, because our Second Amendment rights should not extend only as far as our respective state’s borders. This legislation protects the law-abiding citizens who simply want to be able to protect themselves – whether they are traveling, recently moved, or live near a state line. Each state will still be able to decide their own standards, allowing them to retain the right to decide what works best for the people in their state.”
