Civilian

Protecting yourself or your loved ones during a defensive gun use can result in a myriad of legal proceedings being made against you including civil liability suits seeking monetary damages, or criminal charges being filed against you. The justice system is filled with overzealous prosecutors seeking to further their own political agendas by bringing criminal charges against you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Doesn’t my homeowners insurance provide liability coverage for my use of a firearm?  

Maybe, most homeowners policies provide liability protection for accidental injuries caused by an insured. However, most policies exclude coverage for injuries and damages that are expected or intended. Some insurers provide coverage for reasonable use of force to protect your person or other persons, but determining what constitutes “reasonable use of force” is left up to your insurer. Courts interpret policy language in very different ways. Some courts interpret the exclusion liberally, while others interpret it literally. It can depend upon the jurisdictions that take a more liberal approach and look at the degree of injury or damage inflicted into consideration and whether the results of the act were expected or intended, not simply whether the act was expected or intended.

Your homeowners insurance will not protect you against alleged criminal acts. You will be responsible for funding your own criminal defense expenses to protect your freedom.

Will my homeowners insurance defend me for alleged criminal acts?

No. Criminal acts are excluded from coverage on homeowners policies.

If my homeowners insurance won’t cover me doesn’t my umbrella?

No. The umbrella policy only adds additional amounts of liability protection when the underlying policy coverage limit has been exhausted. If the underlying policy does not cover the claim the umbrella won’t either.
