Did you know that concealed carry permit holders are statistically safer in their gun use than trained police officers?

Tim Schmidt of the United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA) joined “The Glenn Beck Radio Program” on Thursday to share some facts about gun rights and safety.

“Concealed carry permit holders are by far the most responsible and well-trained gun carriers there are,” Schmidt said, explaining that these gun owners are less likely to accidentally discharge a firearm than on-duty and off-duty police officers.

Liberals often argue for “gun-free zones” in schools and other public places in the name of safety; in reality, those so-called safety zones put people in more danger because only perpetrators will have a weapon.

“Gun-free zones, they essentially act as mass shooting magnets,” Schmidt said.

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) introduced a bill on June 15 that would require D.C. to honor concealed carry permits from every state.
