The USCCA Story: My Responsibility to My Family & Proof the American Dream Is Real

Becoming a father changed EVERYTHING.

Suddenly I understood my own father a lot better, and with these new lives to defend I had to take a stand for what I believed in…

…a stand for the family I had to protect.

My father taught me that with hard work, disciplined risk-taking and a positive mental attitude you can accomplish anything.

My dad taught me that the American Dream is real.

The American Dream IS real … but it’s not free.

He would always tell me, “Tim, never feel ashamed for trying and failing, for he who has never failed is he who has never tried.”

With what we do as responsibly armed Americans, every day is a battle — and we rise to meet that battle as a family.

You see, at the USCCA we ARE a family, and the American Dream IS still alive.

We truly stand for something here. But out there, not everyone does.

And this community — this family — stands for the right — in fact, the DUTY — to protect the people we love and all that we hold dear.

You know, as Americans we’re blessed to be part of the greatest experiment in freedom the world has ever known. And that experiment is NOT over.

There are people out there, right now, who don’t believe in your God-given right to self-defense OR your freedom to own a firearm to defend those you love.

Maybe for them that great American experiment IS over … but not for us.

It’s up to US to defend it, to live it and to preserve it for future generations.

You and every member of the USCCA are part of a revolution; a revolution to save lives and change the way the world sees responsibly armed Americans.

Now don’t get me wrong; I totally understand that we ARE a group of humans … and by definition we are FAR from perfect.

We need to train harder. We need to learn more. We need to be BETTER people.

But you know what? What we do here, the way the USCCA and its members change people’s lives, the way we SAVE people’s lives … well, THAT is perfect!

Because your right to security, your right to protect yourself and the people you love, and your right to liberty ARE inalienable.

They cannot be taken from a free people … not while we stand together as a community like we do now.

We see proof of that every day when our fellow USCCA Members call in.

Sometimes they’re just looking for a friendly voice…

And sometimes? Sometimes they’re calling in desperate need of help.

They may even have been forced to take a life in self-defense!

And in that moment, they know that the people ready to stand up and defend their future — and their family’s future — are right here working at the USCCA!

Through the USCCA’s education, training and legal protection, we’ve empowered millions of responsibly armed Americans to become the confident defenders their families deserve.

I want you to truly understand the community you’ve come upon today.

I want you to truly understand the DIFFERENCE USCCA Members are making in our communities!

What we do is important.

What YOU do is so important.

And I believe you all deserve a round of applause for that.

Take Care and Stay Safe,

Tim Schmidt
President | USCCA
