The night Buddy Sheppard was arrested, he was simply defending his family and property with a gun. As an Army veteran and former law enforcement officer, he was highly experienced and well trained with the use of a firearm. That didn't keep him from going to jail --- even though he never fired a single shot.

While shocking, Sheppard's story is nothing new to Tim Schmidt, President and Founder of the U.S. Concealed Carry Association (USCCA).
"Unfortunately, cases like this come up all the time. You know, the deck is already stacked against you as a responsibly armed American," Schmidt said. "But the good news is, there’s something you can do about it."
