There was even talk within the shooting industry about not advertising to women as women would not understand the mechanics of firearms nor the nomenclature.

Our combined influence can work to reshape American society. What do we want to accomplish and where do we want to start?"

The best options for your self-defense weapon
For many self-defense situations, the small sporting rifles in light to medium calibers have been proven over the years to be a solid option in this role.
In today’s litigious society, any civilian in the Burlington, NC area that has a concealed carry license, carries a sidearm constitutionally, open carries or uses any type of hidden firearm or ocular interruption in self preservation, is at great risk that they will face litigation, possibly even criminal prosecution if they use a gun or any gun for self-defense. Even if the use of deadly force was justified in your mind and possibly even legally justified, court costs are a true reality one must be prepared to endure.
In defending oneself during litigation, whether it be in the civil courts such as a wrongful death lawsuit or a criminal case where you are accused of the use of excessive force or even homicide, court costs in all reality will more than likely be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not more, even if found innocent and not guilty! Can you afford $500,000 in legal fees?
If you open carry or carry a concealed pistol you must have a plan, and with all the various societies selling different types of self-defense insurance and self-defense protection plans, you must do due diligence in your research. Did you know there’s a major difference between legal defense plans and self-defense protection plans? Several of the societies that sell true legal defense plans cannot offer their services in all 50 states because of the different laws concerning legal defense plans whereas societies that sell self-defense protection plans are allowed to sell their programs in every state, this would be exceptionally helpful if you are traveling with a concealed carry license under reciprocity with a neighboring state and then were involved in a self preservation shooting event.
If you’re tussling for your life in the criminal justice system in Burlington, NC, there are going to be out of pocket expenses that can equal or even exceed attorney fees.

Another major item you must take into consideration when choosing the association you want to work with is what are their limits of their defense in both personnel assigned to your case and monetary limits. There are actually some societies that are very limited and others that have no limits, so doing your homework and due diligence in researching the best association for your needs is of paramount importance.
One society that we have found with some of, if not the best and most comprehensive coverage in Burlington, NC, is the society “CCW Safe”.
