The ever-helpful, Stand-Your-Ground-loving NRA has endorsed new  self-defense insurance coverage, offered as a rider to “excess personal liability,” for those facing legal battles after shooting someone on their doorstep who probably only wanted to, say, sell them insurance. Administered by Lockton Affinity exclusively for NRA members, it covers criminal defense and other costs under the tagline, "Are you covered if you're involved in an act of self defense?" Only about $165 a year. Forgiveness from on high extra.

THE LAST FIREWALL AGAINST THE LIES

Independent media has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies.   Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook.  Never before has independent media been more endangered.  If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support our critical Winter campaign now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing.
