USCCA-For Saving Lives Action Fund Statement on Surgeon General’s Decision to Play Politics with the Second Amendment

“Violent Crime & the Failure of Prosecutors to Hold Criminals Accountable is the Real Public Health Crisis Today”

West Bend, WI – The U.S. Concealed Carry Association For Saving Lives Action Fund (USCCA-FSL Action Fund), which is supported by the country’s largest, fastest-growing self-defense association dedicated to responsible gun owners, released the following statement regarding today’s announcement by the U.S. Surgeon General’s office:

“It is no coincidence the Surgeon General’s new advisory targets law-abiding gun owners across America in the height of election season. The Biden administration has continually fought to restrict the rights of responsibly-armed gun owners while simultaneously turning a blind eye to the surging crime rates in cities across the country. Violent crime and the failure of prosecutors to hold criminals accountable is the real public health crisis in America today,” said Katie Pointer Baney, Executive Director of the USCCA For Saving Lives Action Fund.

“As an advocacy and education organization dedicated to creating citizen lobbyists, the USCCA-FSL Action Fund is committed to amplifying the voices of responsible gun owners in Washington, D.C., and in state capitals across the country. We are currently working to mobilize a grassroots voter registration effort to empower the voices from every corner of America, and political attacks like this on gun owners only serve to heighten their engagement further this election season,” Baney concluded.  

With over 825,000 members nationwide, the U.S. Concealed Carry Association(USCCA) is the largest and fastest-growing association in the country, whose sole focus is providing self-defense education and training to responsible American gun owners. The recently launched USCCA for Saving Lives Action Fund – a 501(c)(4) organization – was created last year with the mission of educating and equipping responsible gun owners to advocate for their Constitutional rights.
