Self-Defense Often Results in Arrest of the Victims
Firearms Legal Protection Protects Family, Financial Assets and Liberty
A violent crime takes place every 27.1 seconds, a robbery every 1.5 minutes and a burglary every 16.4 seconds in the United States, according to the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report for 2013. The Pew Research Center reports that there are 270 million to 310 million guns in the United States, and more than a third of Americans have a gun in their household. Firearms Legal Protection, LLC a member company of Risk Theory, LLC, launched this week in Dallas to offer prepaid legal services to U.S. gun owners.
Americans are accustomed to insurance – life insurance, car insurance, homeowner’s insurance; however, many do not know about legal protection for firearm owners. They are finding that legal services for firearms owners are becoming as important as proper training and maintenance of those firearms. Responsibly-armed citizens in self-defense incidents are investigated by police to determine whether the actions of the citizen were justified and are often arrested while this investigation unfolds. The assistance of well-qualified lawyers is imperative to streamline and guide the process from arrest to bail and additional representation in legal proceedings, criminal or civil, in the least traumatizing way.
