California Tells NRA To Stop Selling Insurance Policy

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – 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 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. The order carries a potential fine of $5,000 a day for violations. The NRA can request a review of the order. Messages to the NRA seeking comment weren’t immediately returned.
