USCCA President & Founder Tim Schmidt To Speak At Washington March For Our Rights Rally
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
West Bend, WI – Tim Schmidt, the president and founder of the United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA), will be featured as a speaker at the Washington State March for Our Rights rally on Saturday, April 27. The march will end at the Washington State Capital and consist of a coalition of Second Amendment advocates. Other speakers will include Washington state legislators and representatives from pro-Second Amendment groups such as the Kids SAFE Foundation and Ladies of Liberty Alliance.
“Now more than ever, Second Amendment advocates need to band together and show policymakers that we will not accept misguided laws that limit Americans’ natural born right to self-defense,” Schmidt said. “USCCA has long held the belief that the focus of government at all levels should be supporting more responsibly-armed Americans who are often the first line of defense in active shooter situations, and I look forward to advancing that message in Washington.
The march comes as the Washington State Office of the Insurance Commissioner is targeting pro-Second Amendment organizations like the USCCA by unilaterally banning firearm liability insurance plans despite the fact that Washington State law clearly states that self-defense is neither an illegal act nor a criminal activity.
As Washington continues its assault on its citizens’ Second Amendment freedoms, several states have taken the positive step of allowing more responsible gun owners to carry concealed weapons, such as Kentucky and South Dakota implementing laws that allow citizens to carry concealed weapons without first obtaining a permit.
