In Sixteen Years Since, Acts of Terror Have Made Right to Self-Defense Fundamental to Our Safety
West Bend, WI – The United States Concealed Carry Association has released the following statement on the 16th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on September 11th, 2001:
“As America remembers the horrific events and lives lost during the terrorist attacks on September 11th, 2001, we are reminded that the threats we face will never cease to exist,” said Tim Schmidt, Founder & President of the United States Concealed Carry Association. “In the sixteen years since, acts of terror in the United States and abroad have continued to occur, making the right to self-defense fundamental to our safety. The right to keep and bear arms, especially through concealed carry, can be a powerful deterrent effect on certain types of terrorism, such as the attacks in San Bernardino, California and Paris, France. We hope that our leaders recognize the threats we face and allow Americans to defend themselves and their families by exercising their right to keep and bear arms.”
The U.S. Concealed Carry Association (USCCA) provides education, training and self-defense insurance to responsible American gun owners. Headquartered in West Bend, WI, the USCCA is the largest and fastest-growing, member-owned, private association whose sole focus is the responsibly armed American.
