Rights and Responsibilities Video Training. Free For All NRA Carry Guard Members.

Learn About Membership

A Right. A Responsibility.

It takes more than a gun to be well-armed. This is training for those who understand that carrying every day requires discipline, education and a respectful appreciation of the magnitude of drawing the gun from the holster.

What You'll Learn In This Series

Once The bullet Leaves The Gun

Assuming you are legally justified in pulling the trigger on an assailant simply isn't good enough—it is essential not to exercise deadly force unless absolutely necessary.

The Totality of the Circumstances

Learn how to use the legal concept of the totality of circumstances to articulate the threats that you faced.

The Significance of Time

A question that will be asked of any self-defense incident is if it was immediately necessary.

Morals VS. Laws

When you weigh whether to employ deadly force, you must remember that you will not be judged on the morality of your actions but on legal procedural considerations that often have no apprehension of the realities of violence.

Understanding Self-Defense

Learn why it is crucial to be able to disconnect from your emotions and discern between true self-defense, as legally defined, and retribution.


Whether or not you live in a state with Stand Your Ground laws, you should abide by a four-step strategy: Avoid. De-escalate. Retreat. Engage.

And So Much More ... 

I urge you to take advantage of all that NRA Carry Guard has to offer, including the most comprehensive training curriculum ever developed for men and women who carry firearms.

- Wayne LaPierre, NRA Executive Vice President and CEO
