Just a few days ago (on Monday of this very week) the NRA announced a new groundbreaking training program they have dubbed: Carry Guard. The NRA claims that this new program is intended to be the “most comprehensive training program for those who carry a firearm.” Lofty goals for this new training program, but it appears to have serious backing from several of the heavyweights in our illustrious industry!
The NRA supposes that this new program will allow members to learn legal rights and responsibilities when carrying firearms for personal protection. The program is also designed to train shooters to perform effectively under duress, and will give members the needed information to analyze self-defense situations from a legal aspect. The program also boasts protection administered by Lockton Affinity, LLC and fully is insured by Chubb (one of the worlds largest publicly traded property and casualty insurance companies). On top of that, members also have access to a heft of emergency support services in case of a defensive situation (access to a supreme consortium of legal representation included). Supplemental benefits are also included and spouses are automatically covered (in the event of a defensive situation at the home of the insured party).
The developers of this program include members of the U.S. Navy Seals, the Army’s Green Berets, and the NRA’s own superior instructors. This program was developed with responsible civilian firearms owners in mind, and appears to be quite the comprehensive program. Several training videos are offered to members that detail a myriad of techniques to be used to preserve safety and life during defensive situations.
*****Here is a snippet of the press release:
“ATLANTA – On Monday, the National Rifle Association of America announced the launch of NRA Carry Guard, a program created to provide America’s most comprehensive insurance and legal coverage, as well as best-in-class training for those who carry a gun. NRA Carry Guard members can access many great benefits including legal assistance and the ability to select their own counsel, as well as immediate access as needed to supplementary payments for bail, legal retainer fees, compensation while in court and more. NRA Carry Guard is the only membership program for self-defense insurance and training developed and supported by the National Rifle Association, representing the next evolution in freedom’s defense from the most powerful civil rights organization in American history.”
