Gun ownership, Concealed Carry Licenses and recreational shooting have seen a dramatic increase in the last decade but many Gun Owners don’t know their insurance policy may not cover them for Self-Defense."
Verona, WI (PRWEB) February 01, 2013
According to the Small Arms Survey in 2007 by the Graduate Institute of International Studies in Geneva, there were an estimated 270 million firearms in the US, and that number has increased since then. Most own multiple guns and it is estimated the number of Gun Owners is between 170-200 Million or more in the US today – many of whom have no idea they may not have the proper insurance coverage in place.
Gun ownership, Concealed Carry Licenses and recreational shooting have seen a dramatic increase in the last decade but many Gun Owners don’t realize there is another side of the equation – “What happens to you afterward if you have to use your gun for Self-Defense?” Most states have either “Stand Your Ground” or Castle Doctrine laws in place but they vary greatly and many of these laws have gaps where you can be charged with a crime or be sued in civil court for your actions in a Self-Defense shooting.
Says Monge “in Wisconsin we have the Castle Doctrine but it only goes so far. In this state the law protects you against being charged with a crime or sued in civil court if you are in your home, car or in a business you own or occupy in a Self-Defense shooting. If you are out in public and happen to be involved in a Self-Defense shooting you could face legal charges and civil suits by your target or bystanders, so be sure you have the right insurance coverage in place before it happens. I wrote the Guide so Gun Owners can see their options all in one convenient place. Civil suit protection varies from $250,000 to $1,000,000 or more and I have it broken down by available programs with coverage amounts to choose the best option for your needs.”
