About The 2A Rally
Starting in 2006 Pennsylvania gun owners began gathering every year in Harrisburg to send a simple message to state legislators: Unconstitutional and ineffective emotionally driven gun control legislation has no place in this Commonwealth and we will not stand by idly and allow our Freedoms to be eroded or taken away by any means.
Gun Rights Issues
Beginning in 1931, with the enactment of the Uniform Firearms Act, PA gun owners and the Right to Bear Arms has been under attack. From 'registering' gun owners with the Record of Sale form to cities like Philadelphia and Pittsburgh trying to ban firearms in defiance of law; the 'only' thing standing in the way of this socialism is the proudly defiant PA citizen.
Tim Schmidt attended Michigan Tech University where he earned a B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering in 1994.
In 2003, Tonnie Schmidt and Tim Schmidt founded Delta Defense and the United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA) and began publishing a self-defense magazine that focused on responsible firearms ownership. This magazine grew into a national association providing self-defense education, training and legal protection to its members.
The USCCA has more than 285,000 members and 1.8 million newsletter subscribers. Delta Defense employs over 170 people in 12 states and was named to the Inc. 5000 list of America’s fastest growing private companies in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017.
Cam Edwards is the host of Cam & Co. on NRATV and SiriusXM Patriot 125. Since 2004, he’s provided the latest 2nd Amendment news and information from across the country for three hours a day, five days a week. Pennsylvania features prominently in that coverage, dating back to the days of former Philadelphia mayor John Street blaming concealed carry holders for the rise in Philadelphia homicides and continuing on through today’s efforts to defend against sweeping semi-auto bans and to push for statewide firearms pre-emption laws with teeth.
Cam lives on a small farm not far from Farmville, Virginia with his wife and kids. When he’s not on the air you can likely find him caring for his “bacon seeds”, goats, chickens and garden.. unless he’s plinking or taking aim at clay targets.
