Take USCCA’s New Disaster Prep Course Before 2020 Strikes Again

The year 2020 is apparently a BDSM scene, and none of us know the safeword. This is the next-best thing…

September is “National Preparedness Month,” and with it comes the bitter reminder that just because we’ve already endured several disasters doesn’t mean the year 2020 doesn’t have a few more surprises up its sleeve. That’s why the United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA), which provides self-defense education, training and legal protection to over 400,000 American gun owners, recently launched their new Emergency Preparedness Fundamentals training.

“This year, the Coronavirus pandemic has opened our eyes to the critical importance of being prepared for when disaster strikes. The ease and convenience at which we access water, food, shelter and security has caused many of us to lose sight of how to fend for ourselves and loved ones without basic needs,” said Tim Schmidt, CEO and founder of the USCCA. “The importance of self-reliance will never be more real than in a survival situation, which is why the time to become educated and trained is now. No one should ever second-guess their ability to protect themselves and their families when the unthinkable comes knocking at the door.”

Schmidt recently spoke with Fox News about the surge of first-time gun owners in the United States – hitting nearly 5 million in 2020 so far – and the critical importance of training and education:

  • “The first thing I would explain to [a] new gun owner or concealed carrier is that the training required by your state is not even close to enough. I don’t care if you’re in the most stringent state in terms of training, it’s not enough. You need to find a way to educate yourself on firearms handling.”

USCCA’s Emergency Preparedness Fundamentals Training will help responsible Americans uncover the four core pillars of survival, build a 72-hour survival kit for any disaster, gain secret insights on sheltering in place and understand the fundamentals of home defense with a firearm.
