If I’m “charged” in a shooting will I get Legal representation? The reason I as is because Kayla Gikes was denied coverage by USCCA.
OMG… She was charged with 1st Deg Murder. As in Premeditated.
@Perry14 Welcome back. You need to visit more often.
I’m extremely mindful that when I draw, it’s lawful self-defense.
She bought SD insurance as part of her plan to kill her husband in public. Period…
God this circular discussion just needs to go away or folks should search this topic so they can read the 4,000 posts on this before they start beating a dead and by now mummified horse.
Who’s Kayla Giles?
Kayla Giles committed murder.
Don’t commit murder, act in self defense (or defense of a third party, potentially)
Use the training and education to understand what justified self defense is, and even more importantly, what you can do to try and avoid it in the first place (when possible)
The membership benefit of being an additional insured on the self defense liability insurance policy the USCCA purchased is for any lawful act of self defense not otherwise excluded. Being an act of self defense is a pivotal aspect.
That is true research was done. She was denied coverage when she was charged."
It would benefit you to figure out the difference between charged and convicted.
She was not denied as soon as she was charged.
But, again, she committed murder. Don’t do that if you want help from USCCA membership benefits
@Perry14 It would also benefit you to figure out the difference between truth and lies.
I know it’s off subject but can somebody answer me I probably didn’t even ask this in the right place but is it true that if you do use your handgun in a self-defense situation and it truly is self-defense that uscca does not let you choose your representation? And if somehow found guilty because not represented properly and I’m asking I’m not trolling or trying to start a war on here I’m just curious of what I’ve been told by multiple people that if you are found guilty even though it was a self-defense incident somehow that you have to reimburse uscca as well as going to jail? Anybody know if this is true about the representation
@Joseph516 Heavy Sigh… Call USCCA, 24-7-365 help and answers. 800-674-9779.
Hey, What the Hell, This Popcorn is Ducking OLD!!??!?!
When you did not follow the 7 rules of deadly force. 7_Rules_Deadly_Force_Checklist_3-14-2022.indd (usconcealedcarry.com)
Let’s be real here, a self defense incident can costs hundreds of thousands of dollars, even millions. Lets say USCCA spent $5 million in your defense, you lost the case, you’re doing 10-15 years behind bars.
When you get out, lets say USCCA is going to sue you for $5 million dollars.
WHAT FRICKEN MONEY DO YOU HAVE??? YOU BEEN LOCKED UP FOR YEARS!!! File bankruptcy and they have no case. OMFG. USCCA coming after you is the least of your worries. Unless you somehow get $20 million dollars in the bank due to fraud, and then you’re only worried about losing $5 million of it. (At that point your priorities are wrong.)
You state the inconvenient obvious. But we see our government do it all of the time, sentence a person to 15 to life and a $250,000.00 fine…
It may be obvious, but my initial concern hasn’t been addressed.
