For a few years, the NRA has offered program called Carry Guard, billed as ‘the most complete product available for those who carry firearms, offering training and education resources’. Their training use real-world occasions where it is necessary for someone with a concealed carry license to use their weapon for self-defense or the defense of others,

Carry Guard was offered through a contract agreement with Lockton Companies. However, after the Valentine’s Day school shooting in Florida, Lockton has come under attack and was sued by New York and ordered to pay a $7 million fine. Consequently, Lockton has notified the NRA they are discontinuing their NRA endorsed insurance programs including Carry Guard, so the NRA has filed a lawsuit against Lockton for breach of contract.

(Bloomberg) – The National Rifle Association is suing Lockton Cos., alleging the insurance broker breached its contract with the firearms lobbying group. Lockton administered the NRA’s Carry Guard insurance program, which was advertised as the nation’s “most complete self-defense membership program.”

Last week, Lockton was fined $7 million for unlawfully providing liability coverage to gun owners in the event they were charged with a crime involving their firearms, according to the New York Department of Financial Services…

In the NRA lawsuit, they contend that the recent lawsuit and fine levied against Lockton was politically motivated and driven by Everytown for Gun Safety, the ultra-left anti-gun group that is largely funded by Michael Bloomberg and that by suddenly discontinuing the NRA sponsored Carry Guard program, Lockton has violated the term of their contract with the NRA.
