Free Legal Representation Offered By Two Organizations For Gun Owner Members In Legal Hot Water.

Free legal representation is now offered by several organizations to their members who are involved in self defense shootings and other legal gun woes.

After the George Zimmerman case, legal liability for self defense shooting has become a concern for gun owners. One company, Texas Law Shield, offers legal representation for members who act in self defense in Texas. There is no cap on legal representation costs to members.

The monthly membership fee is $131.40 for concealed permit holders and $89.00 a year for those without carry permits. A couple who both have carry permits can get protection for $240.00 per year. They also offer Texas members multi-state coverage at an extra charge.

According to the company, if you have to use a firearm in self defense, the program provides legal representation including all attorney fees for both civil and criminal firearms cases. They also provide 24 hour emergency access to your attorney on an emergency hotline.

The plan covers police investigations, Grand Jury proceedings, and Criminal and Civil trials. Company attorneys are also available to answer firearms legal questions.

For $27.00 a month, The U.S. Concealed Carry Association (USCCA) offers up to $500,000 civil suit and damages protection in civil firearm lawsuits, reimbursement of up to $100,000 in criminal defense for self defense charges, grants up to $10,000 to help you retain the attorney of your choice, immediate bail bond cash up to $10,000, and up to $500.00 daily lost wages compensation while in trial. These benefits are available to all members regardless of the state of residency.

They also have a 24 hour attorney hotline and refer a local attorney within 24 hours.

There are also lower priced plans priced at $12.00 and $18.00 monthly which provide less dollar amounts in protection. Other perks are available for all plans. 

Both alternatives are worth looking into.

Kahr Firearms Leaving New York And Jobs Behind Because Of The State's Oppressive New Gun Laws

The State of New York is losing many jobs as a result of the "unintended consequences" of the New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act of 2013 signed into law in New York State in January. 

According to information that has updated the company's press release, Kahr Firearms Group is moving to  Blooming Grove Township of Pike County Pennsylvania, to open a new manufacturing site and relocate the Kahr corporate office from New York to Pennsylvania. 

Kahr’s corporate offices are currently located in Rockland County in Pearl River, New York. 
Kahr’s plans include the purchase of 620 acres of commercial real estate from the Pike County Industrial Park Development Group/Business Development Corporation. The first step in the multi-phased plan will begin with site preparation and office construction as early as late this year. 

This will be followed by the relocation of company corporate offices and the research and 
development department. In the second phase, manufacturing operations will be expanded to the Pike County location to meet the increasing demand for its Kahr Arms, Thompson, 
Auto-Ordnance, and Magnum Research product lines. 

The Kahr Group of manufacturing plants, operating at full capacity, will continue production in 
their current locations in Worcester, MA and Pillager, MN. 

“We are grateful for the warm welcome and the business opportunity extended by the Pike 
County Industrial Park Development Group/Business Development Corporation to expand our 
company and relocate its headquarters office,” stated VP of Sales and Marketing, Frank Harris. 

“The Pennsylvania group has demonstrated tremendous support of our operations and Kahr looks to move forward with the project without delay. It’s good for our business and also for other businesses in the area as we build a long-term mutually beneficial relationship with the 
community. We anticipate generating significant numbers of revenue and jobs for the local 
Northeastern Pennsylvania economy with the construction of facilities, expansion of 
manufacturing, and need for local vendors.”
