“Imagine this: It’s 4:30 AM. You are inside a Smoke Shop and all of a sudden three burglars with masks on storm into the store. You have a gun next to you. Fearing for your safety, you fire a few rounds at the would-be robbers. Then the police show up and drag you off in cuffs, and treat the burglars like the victims…He’s now fighting multiple criminal charges after being the victim of a robbery. And he’s still sitting in jail.”
In this crazy world, you can be arrested and charged and treated like the bad guy.
If that happened, how would you find a pro-Second Amendment lawyer?
How would you pay for lawyers’ fees?
How would you post a bond to get out of jail?
Watch this video about Kerri Anne McGrath, a woman who did everything right defending herself and still got arrested. In the video below, she says, “It threw me back how quickly I turned from victim to bad guy because all I was trying to do was defend myself.”
Fortunately, Kerri Anne had a membership with the US Concealed Carry Association. Her USCCA membership gave her access to a crisis response team. They put her in touch with a pro-Second Amendment lawyer and paid for her lawyer fees.
Her membership with the USCCA also would have paid for her bail bond and any defense expenses if she were formally charged.
USCCA was the first call Kerri Anne made after her gun incident, and you can tell in that video how grateful she was: “If it wasn’t for the USCCA, I probably would have been in prison.”
