On June 6th, USCCA (United States Conceal Carry Association) will be adding an additional membership benefit of an insurance policy which would cover someone who legally defends themselves using a firearm. This would potentially do away with the financial concern with regard to defending yourself and your loved ones. It is not unusual for someone to be bankrupted by court costs, legal fees and in many cases, civil cases brought about by family members of the criminal. I have often wondered if there would be a way to have some form of an insurance policy but there have always been road blocks. Looks like USCCA found a way to do it. I'll copy and past the email I got from them below. I would strongly advise anyone who plans to get a CC permit to get involved and enrolled in this!

Dear Fellow Responsibly Armed Citizen, I can NOT get these words out of my head. What words? I just spent four days training with a group of ten USCCA staffers and members. Our instructor had been a cop for 25 years. He said something that I just CAN’T get out of my head. “... Justice goes to the highest bidder in America.” Unfortunately, there’s only one way to win in a court system that has long forgotten the meaning of the word “JUSTICE.” I’ll give you a little hint: $XXX,XXX Well, I’ve decided to do something about it. I figured out how we’ll beat the crooked, unscrupulous fat-cats that want to see you and me go to prison for responsibly defending our families. Justice going to the highest bidder? Not anymore! ---> USCCA Self-Defense SHIELD<http://links.mkt3804.com/ctt?kn=2&ms=MTA3OTkzMwS2&r=ODcwNjEwMDMwS0&b=0&j=Mjc1OTE2NjkS1&mt=1&rt=0><--- Check out this amazing new member benefit and let me know what you think. -- Tim Schmidt Founder U.S. Concealed Carry *P.S.* - Think you’ll get a fair trial when you defend your loved ones with your handgun?
