USCCA President Applauds Nevada Concealed Carry Measure

March 26, 2019

West Bend, WI – The President and Founder of the U.S. Concealed Carry Association (USCCA), which represents more than 300,000 law-abiding and responsibly-armed
Americans, today released the following statement in response to the introduction of Assembly Bill 437, which would allow Nevadans to carry concealed weapons without
first obtaining a permit.

“Responsibly-armed Americans are often the first line of defense in active shooter situations and government at all levels should be supporting them,” said Tim Schmidt of the USCCA. “Sixteen other states have now adopted constitutional carry measures like the one Nevada is now considering because more and more lawmakers are realizing the need to allow Americans to protect themselves from dangerous criminals. USCCA has long held that the focus of government at all levels should be supporting more responsibly-armed Americans, and any bill that achieves that end upholds the values of the Second Amendment and makes our country a safer place.”
The USCCA, which is the largest and fastest growing association in the country whose sole focus is the responsibly-armed American, has almost 300,000 members in every
state, including many in Nevada. The organization provides education, training and self-defense protection to responsible American gun owners. Roughly one out of every four
Americans now own or have a gun in their home, and over 18 million Americans now have a concealed carry permit, including many women and minorities. Study after study
has shown that these Americans are among the most law-abiding citizens in the country and they have the necessary knowledge, training, and experience to protect those
around them.
