It’s like AAA for gun owners


Lee’s note: This just in from the brand new Second Defense Alliance. I will be interviewing the group’s chief operating officer Monday, for an in-depth story we will publish next week.


Americans Who Protect Their Families Face Severe Financial, Legal and Emotional Risks If They Shoot a Home Invader

New membership group aims to educate them, provide legal, financial support, mental health counseling in the case of a shooting.

 Gun sales also have surged since the Newton shootings. A recent Pew Research Center study shows new gun owners cite protection as the primary reason they own a gun. The same study says 65% of women listed protection as their top priority.* But what happens when a homeowner uses their gun in self-defense? Efforts to protect loved ones and property have led to the arrest of homeowners. Some are sued by the home invaders; some have had to pay burial and cleanup costs. The Second Defense Alliance wants gun owners to realize they are at risk if they use their firearm during a home invasion. But what many gun owners don’t know is a gun is not the last line of defense.

The Second Defense Alliance is a new organization that protects gun owners who protect themselves. Membership benefits cover multiple aspects in the immediate aftermath of a home invasion shooting, including legal support, financial support for medical bills, clean-up, bail bonds, mental health counseling for members and their family and, if necessary, funeral costs. Many gun owners believe their home insurance policy protects them it doesn’t!

Similar to AAA, Second Defense Alliance provides immediate, comprehensive “boots on the ground” support. In the event of a home invasion shooting, members are given a script to show police officers, members will have immediate access to an attorney and SDA will pay bail bond and emergency medical expenses. SDA’s financial resources and services are designed to protect their members, their children and their home so that they can begin the healing process as soon as possible after a home invasion shooting.
