Let’s face it:
There are people who HATE the fact that you and I carry guns.
They’re determined to teach us a lesson just for exercising our inalienable, God-given right to self-defense.
And unfortunately, sometimes they WIN.
In today’s climate, you may need to be prepared to face the justice system, no matter how clear a case of self-defense you think you have.

This true story is an important reminder why a gun is NOT enough…
Brian was well trained.
He had spent years learning and practicing the defensive use of firearms.
He had a concealed carry permit. And his gun was secured in his truck.
Brian was helping his ex-wife because a deranged man had attacked her and lit her home on fire the day before.
This attacker beat her up and lit her house on fire?
It’s hard to imagine such evil...
Here’s what happened next:
Brian went with his ex-wife and their daughter to gather some things from her burned home.
With their daughter in the truck, Brian did exactly what USCCA Training teaches members to do...
He placed himself between the angry attacker and his ex-wife and attempted to defuse the situation without violence.
You MUST think about where to place yourself in a variety of scenarios in order to keep your loved ones safe…
...even if that means putting yourself in danger to protect them…
You also must practice defusing potentially violent situations, BEFORE you’re in one…
Despite Brian’s best attempts, this deranged attacker became more agitated.
He angrily rushed toward Brian and his ex-wife.
But Brian refused to let him inside.
So he kicked him in the chest, sending him backward down the steps.
The attacker ran away.
Brian ran to his truck to get his phone and call the police.
Brian couldn’t complete the call.
His life (and the lives of his loved ones) were in danger.
Brian grabbed his legally concealed pistol and told the attacker to STOP.
Despite Brian’s verbal commands to back off…
Despite seeing Brian’s gun...
The attacker rushed forward holding the metal pipe above his head, ready to swing.
Brian had done everything he could to AVOID having to shoot.
In fact, the attacker was less than 5 feet from him when he pressed the trigger.
Can you imagine that?
Can you imagine a senseless, deranged criminal rushing toward you from under 10 feet away?
Metal pipe above his head, you’re the ONLY chance your family has to survive?
This isn’t just about what’s right in the eyes of the law.
We’re talking about morality - life and death.
I hope you never find yourself in this position.
I pray you’re NEVER forced to shoot in self-defense.
But if you MUST, then you must be READY.
You must act decisively.
Read on to discover how Brian did everything right, only to wind up in jail...
He administered first aid.
After the ambulance and police arrived, he complied with every request.
Yet, as confusing and emotional as this situation was…
He remained calm.
As he was handcuffed and put into a squad car, he really felt like the detectives were just doing their jobs…
The only way to be prepared for it…
...is to actually take the time to think through it and prepare for it.
That’s why USCCA has critical training on this topic.
Now, back at the police station…
Brian realized something was wrong.
Even though his ex-wife corroborated his story…
And even though there was little evidence to support it...
They locked him up.
The truth is, good people do sometimes get charged with a crime they didn’t commit.
The justice system is complex.
Particularly when firearms are involved.
Even in the most clear-cut cases of self-defense, people make mistakes.
That’s why it’s critical to know the concealed carry and self-defense laws in your state and have a backup plan in place if you’ve made the decision to carry a gun or have one for home defense...
While locked up in the worst cell block, which held the most violent criminals…
Brian remembered his USCCA Membership.
He was able to get a message to his parents, and his mom called:
That phone call changed everything…
Brian, who had been praying out of desperation, felt hopeful for the first time...
The Delta Defense Critical Response Team exists to help USCCA Members navigate the confusing aftermath of a self-defense incident.
They work with the thousands of attorneys in the USCCA Attorney Network to help USCCA Members get qualified legal counsel.
Reflecting back now, Brian wishes he had called them immediately after dialing 911.
The Critical Response Team immediately contacted a qualified attorney from the USCCA Attorney Network, who drove straight to the jail to visit Brian.
In fact, he launched his own investigation, connecting all of the dots the detectives had missed.
He worked diligently to get this innocent USCCA Member out of jail, home to his loved ones, and cleared of all charges.
Frankly, it took a lot of time.
It took a lot of money...
And it took a toll on the family.
Brian shudders to think what would have happened if he didn’t have a USCCA Membership.
In fact, he believes he would still be in jail awaiting trial…
...or in prison convicted of a crime he didn’t commit.
Now this is the most important part...
It’s incredible that this USCCA Member had access to vital resources to help fund his defense expenses.
And it’s incredible that USCCA Members immediately get self-defense liability insurance as an automatic membership benefit.1
However, let’s be crystal clear about...
The benefits that help you in the aftermath, while important, are not the MOST important benefit...
Let me explain…
This man protected himself and his family members from a deranged criminal.
He took decisive action.
He kept them safe.
He protected them.
This is SO important...
Do you know what really makes all the difference when it comes to self-defense?
The answer is how you PREPARE for it.
After all, the best way to WIN a gunfight is to AVOID it in the first place.
Being prepared means avoiding danger.
It means knowing how to de-escalate a potentially violent situation.
It’s about making the right decisions:
Knowing how to find cover.
Giving a verbal command.
Avoiding pressing that trigger at all costs…
And if necessary...
It means shooting accurately, under pressure.
That’s what makes all the difference.
And that’s what the USCCA is here to help you do.
When you’re under attack, you don’t have time to think through what you’ll do.
You need those decisions programmed into your mind in advance.
That requires excellent training.
It requires making informed decisions.
This is why USCCA Membership is so important.
The USCCA helps responsible Americans prepare for everything they’ll encounter before, during, and after a violent self-defense incident.
