California Orders NRA To Stop Selling “Carry Guard” Insurance
California. The Land of Liberal nutbirds now has decided that Carry Guard, an insurance policy for gun owners, can’t be sold in their state because it is an “unlicensed” insurance product.
“California has ordered the National Rifle Association to stop selling an insurance policy that covers legal costs for injury or damage from legally using a gun.
The state Department of Insurance on Tuesday issued a cease and desist order saying that the NRA sold an unlicensed insurance product in the state. The order carries a potential fine of $5,000 a day for violations.
The order refers to the Self-Defense Insurance Policy included in the NRA’s Carry Guard membership program. The policy covers some legal costs from criminal cases or lawsuits that arise when a gun is used for self-defense, recreation, hunting, or when a weapon fires accidentally.
About 2,400 Californians are policyholders, which gun control advocates have labeled “murder insurance.”
The National Rifle Association says it believes it did nothing wrong. NRA legal counsel William Brewer II says the organization relied on assurances from the insurance broker, Lockton Cos., that the program met California regulations.”
The snarl seems to be with Lockton Cos, who recently paid $7 million in settlements in New York over the same problem – selling an unlicensed insurance product.
But is Carry Guard actually unlicensed? Lockton still brokers the plan in other states. And the libs at Vice actually said insurance should be a requirement for gun owners. CBS claims that the NRA sued Lockton last year after the Parkland shooting when they supposedly said they were dropping their relationship with the NRA.
Obviously they haven’t done so:
Let’s go back to California: is this action really about “unlicensed insurance?” Or is it about harassing the National Rifle Association? Gun Control advocates hate the NRA and have been after them for a long time. The Parkland shootings gave them a bigger platform…or those who back David Hogg gave them that bigger platform.
