Last week we reported on the NRA dis-inviting the United States Concealed Carry Association as an exhibitor at this week’s NRA convention in Atlanta. The obvious reason: the NRA is getting into the USCCA’s line of business in a big way and didn’t want a direct competitor there. Fair enough…it’s their party.
This week, the gun rights org issued a press release officially announcing the new program:
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.

As RF found as he strolled though the Georgia World Congress center today, the NRA is pushing the Carry Guard program with all the nuance and subtlety we’ve come to expect from their pitches. What’s in your wallet?
