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.

A.D.R.E.

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

Become A Member And Get This Series For Free

NRA Carry Guard members receive free and immediate access to the Rights & Responsibilities video series, featuring an expanding body of instruction that will prepare you for the modern reality of self-defense.

KEY MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS
Benefit for benefit, NRA Carry Guard’s protection program for responsible Americans is the finest available. No other program even comes close.
$1,500,000 OF CIVIL PROTECTION WITH $250,000 IN CRIMINAL DEFENSE
NRA Carry Guard gold members receive up to $1,500,000 of civil protection and $250,000 in criminal defense, with up to 20% of criminal defense costs available as immediate supplementary payments for expenses. Be wary of any provider that claims to offer full criminal defense funding up front: not only is this likely unnecessary, but such policies would be void in the event of a conviction. Most criminal defense attorneys will not require payment of final bills until after your case ends - at which time the rest of your criminal defense protection is available if you were acquitted or the case was dismissed.
 
INDIVIDUAL INSURANCE PLANS
Each NRA Carry Guard member receives individual insurance protection up to the dollar amount indicated by their membership level. Unlike plans with shared limits, NRA Carry Guard members receive their own individual limits of insurance — so you will always receive full and complete coverage, regardless of how many claims are made by other members.
 
IMMEDIATE ACCESS AS NEEDED TO SUPPLEMENTARY PAYMENTS
Instant access to payments for bail, bonds, legal retainer fees, and legal referrals. NRA Carry Guard will also provide payment for the lawful replacement of your seized firearm, property restoration for your primary residence, loss of earning while in court and psychological support.
 
24/7/365 ACCESS TO NRA CARRY GUARD FOR EMERGENCY HOTLINE ASSISTANCE
In the moments following the most stressful situation of your life, no gun owner should be asked by a recorded message to “press 1 for help.” Our 24/7 members-only hotline offers immediate assistance. NRA Carry Guard members receive immediate, expert instructions on how to handle the next steps, report the incident to the insurance carrier, and begin immediate access to supplementary payments.
 
YOUR SPOUSE IS AUTOMATICALLY INSURED AT NO EXTRA CHARGE
The spouses of NRA Carry Guard members are automatically insured inside and outside the home at no extra charge. Your spouse will receive his or her own individual membership card. Plus, for acts of self-defense that occur in your primary residence, NRA Carry Guard protection extends to all resident family members, subject to the limits purchased by member.
 
ONE-YEAR NRA MEMBERSHIP WITH FULL BENEFITS
Every new NRA Carry Guard member receives a full one-year membership to the world’s most effective defender of gun rights: the NRA. If you’re already a member, you’ll get a one-year renewal, and if you’re already a Life member, you’ll be able to give a free one-year membership to anyone you choose.
