TODAY: Advocates Fly Banner Over Lockton Headquarters Demanding It Drop The NRA’s Murder Insurance Policies

February 26, 2018

Guns Down, a bolder, broader movement calling for dramatically fewer guns in America will fly a banner over the headquarters of Lockton Affinity in Overland Park, KS TODAY, MONDAY FEB. 26 demanding that Lockton end its work with the NRA’s Carry Guard Insurance.

The policies, which range in cost from $14 to $49 a month are administered by Lockton Affinity and insured by Chubb. Last week, Reuters reported that Chubb has decided to drop the program.

Introduced last year, the program covers NRA members who shoot someone with a firearm, offering up to $250,000 in immediate payments for criminal defense, and payments for what it calls “cleanup costs,” a replacement firearm, bail, bonds, and psychological support.

A program like NRA’s Carry Guard would have provided up to $1.5 million to George Zimmerman, who was found not guilty by a jury in the shooting of 17 year old Trayvon Martin in 2012.

The campaign was organized by Guns Down, a bolder, broader movement calling for dramatically fewer guns in America, and for making them dramatically harder to get.
