As a law-abiding gun owner, you keep your firearms safely away from young children, you follow the rules of gun safety at all times, and you know when to draw your weapon in self-defense or defense of others.
Doesn’t that mean you should be safe from unjust attacks and threats against you and your family? Unfortunately not.
With over 100 million gun owners and over 15 million cases of identity theft, you could potentially become the next victim…
But, that doesn’t mean you need to worry, thanks to your Gunowner Identity Theft Coverage.
What This Means for You
In 2018, the ATF discovered a startling static–robberies of Federal Firearms Licensees (FFLs) increased by 64% over the past 4 years. And even though most gun owners aren’t FFLs, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be concerned. If you purchased any firearm from your local FFL, your identity is at risk of being stolen.
Many gun owners purchase their firearms from their local gun store or even a big box store like Cabela’s. If you’ve purchased a gun from an FFL like these, what can happen if that store was robbed or burglarized? It would be more than just a local news story. It could impact you directly…
Because FFLs are required to keep their sales records for 20 years, the thief could now have access to your:
– Full name;
– Place of birth;
– Birth date;
– Social Security number; and
– Other personal information.
And if the robbers take these records, your identity is at risk of being stolen.
What can happen to your gun rights if your identity is stolen?
– Your firearms could be wrongfully confiscated because of misidentification
– You could be denied the right to purchase a new firearm; and
– You could lose your carry license
That’s where your Gunowner Identity Theft Coverage steps in.
