NY regulators investigating NRA insurance for gun owners

An insurance policy offered by the NRA is under scrutiny by insurance regulators after gun-control groups raised questions about how it’s being marketed. Carry Guard insurance was launched earlier this year by the nation’s most powerful gun lobbying group and is being promoted to gun-owners as needed coverage to help cover civil and criminal legal costs in cases when they shoot someone in self-defense. Gun-control advocates have called it “murder insurance,” because they believe it would lull gun owners into a false sense of security and encourage them to shoot rather than try to avoid confrontations.
