• NRA Sells Insurance Covering Legal Costs of Shooting People

    There's a good chance that sometime in the next few weeks, the Supreme Court will invalidate the American Care Act, leaving millions of Americans without health insurance coverage. Doubtlessly, some of these people, newly discarded from the insurance rolls due to rescission or pre-existing conditions or the inability to afford unsubsidized insurance premiums, will want to take out their anger on their fellow Americans.

    A few will go too far, but with a little foresight, gun-toting Americans will be able to indemnify themselves from the crippling costs of civil and criminal prosecution, thanks to a National Rifle Association-endorsed insurance plan that covers the costs of a "self-defense" legal strategy…

    Provides coverage up to the limit selected for criminal and civil defense costs.

    Cost of civil suit defense is provided in addition to the limit of liability for bodily injury and property damage.

    Criminal Defense Reimbursement is provided for alleged criminal actions involving self-defense when you are acquitted of such criminal charges or the charges are dropped.

    It's a perfect synergistic strategy. A new study from that bastion of anti-gun nanny-state liberalism, Texas A&M University, found that in states with "stand your ground" laws, which the NRA strenuously lobbies for, murders and shootings went up. Researchers found states with the laws had between 7% to 9% increases in murder, while states without the legislation had no increase. The numbers are startling and threatening enough to warrant buying a gun, an NRA membership and an NRA-backed liability policy — for self-defense.

    Because remember, guns don't kill people. People with guns who think they can act on ill-formed suspicions with indemnity thanks to NRA-backed legislation and insurance policies, kill people.
