Podcast: Inside a Nationwide Gun-Carry Group’s New Political Efforts (Ft. USCCA’s Katie Pointer Baney)

This week, we’re taking an in-depth look at a new player in the gun politics space.

Although, the main reason this group is worth paying attention to is that they aren’t new to being an influential gun group. The United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA) has been a significant presence in concealed-carry insurance and firearms training for a decade. They created a Super PAC two years ago as their first foray into organized political activism, and now they’ve followed that up by forming a new 501(c)(4) non-profit.

Katie Pointer Baney, the head of the new Action Fund, joins the show to give us insight into what she has planned.

The decline of the NRA has left a sizeable hole in the gun-rights movement, but Baney said calls from USCCA members to get more involved in politics were the main motivator for creating the new group. She said the plan is to focus on training activists rather than buying ads or filing lawsuits. Targeting millions of Americans of all different stripes and backgrounds who have become gun owners in the past three years is how the Action Fund will try to differentiate itself from other efforts.

Plus, Contributing Writer Jake Fogleman and I talk about a federal judge finding braced pistols are “in common use” and protected by the Second Amendment.
