Is Shooting People Causing You Legal Problems?

Abby Zimet

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.


Never Miss a Beat.
