Gun Owners Liability Insurance: What Is It, And How Does It Help Me?

2022-06-15T12:23:55-05:00June 9th, 2022|Tags: , |

Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Just as a bullet leaving the muzzle of a gun creates recoil, making the personal decision to be your own defender brings new challenges to consider. Gun owners liability insurance provides coverage for damages resulting from negligence with a firearm. This means that such a policy would exclusively cover damages from unintentional harm. While this may be a worthwhile investment against such an incident, it doesn’t cover acts of lawful self-defense, which is what many people are looking for when they think of gun insurance.

When the end of Spring approaches, many national holidays are on the horizon, and looming large among them is Memorial Day. As a holiday, it stands out for its traditionally somber tone—seemingly alone among a class of officially recognized days that are jubilant and celebratory, but it’s perhaps the most important of them because of this.

Colorado’s New “Vote Without Fear Act”

2022-05-27T17:01:45-05:00May 27th, 2022|Tags: , |

On March 30, 2022, Colorado Governor Jared Polis signed into law the “Vote Without Fear Act,” which generally makes it unlawful to openly carry a firearm at or near any polling location in Colorado during an election. Proponents argue this new law is intended to prevent voter intimidation at the polls and other locations where voters cast a ballot. Opponents argue the new law essentially requires law-abiding gun owners to forgo one constitutional right (the Second Amendment) in order to exercise another (the right to vote).

5.7x28mm vs. 9mm

If there’s one cartridge that comes to mind for personal defense use, it’s probably 9mm (9x19mm Parabellum). Odds are, you don’t immediately think of 5.7x28mm, despite its capabilities—and it might be time to change that. The 5.7x28mm is a newer cartridge by gun industry standards, but it’s done a lot to prove itself. Interested in learning more about a round that’s frequently considered a “boutique” choice? Trying to decide between 5.7x28mm and 9mm? You’ve come to the right place.
