Guns, Freedom & the American Dream

timschmidt_bookAmerica is changing. For many sportsmen, the reasons are more obvious than for many folks not associated with the outdoors, hunting, shooting and conservation. The lifestyle and demands of daily life do not allow many citizens to learn about safe use of firearms, especially when they are living in countries where personal freedom is taken for granted.

Many big city resident folks are not able to learn more about firearms because they are limited by laws where they live. Different types of firearms are simply not allowed in some cities, it is illegal. Reasons why are varied and many. As we all know after the last six or seven years in the United States, firearm laws are written for many reasons, as was the Constitution of the United States. Therein lies the occasional great divide.

There are among us, courageous men and women working to lessen that divide and to provide a clear understanding of American freedom and the responsibility of firearm ownership for lawful Americans. Tim Schmidt, founder of the U.S. Concealed Carry Association (USCCA), the first and largest, member-owned association designed to educate, train, and insure responsibly armed Americans, who has released his first book, an autobiography entitled “Guns, Freedom & the American Dream,” is one of those men.

Schmidt shares his trials and tribulations behind the formation of the United States Concealed Carry Association and Delta Defense. The inspirational book he wrote, many agree, has helped change the way America views responsibly armed citizens. As of November 2015, copies of “Guns, Freedom & the American Dream are available for $22 on the USCCA web site: Consumers who order the book on-line will also receive a free copy of the Emmy nominated DVD: “It’s Up To Me,” where Tim shares his personal and professional journey to form an organization that backs those who believe enough to take on the responsibility of defending their loved ones.
