When a threat is in plain view in front of you, there is no confusion about whether or not you should prepare to defend yourself.
But how can you anticipate the threats waiting in the shadows?
The good news is you don’t have to worry because you’re protected with Gunowner Identity Theft Coverage.
In 2018, gun thefts increased significantly, and criminals used the stolen guns to commit crimes. Some of those guns could be traced back to law-abiding gun owners.
Despite taking precautions and becoming educated on the latest gun laws, gun owners are turned into victims from these situations, and most are left to face the consequences and the fallout alone.
You’re not like most gun owners. You have Gunowner Identity Theft Coverage.
If your firearm is ever stolen and found at a crime scene, your identity may be associated with that firearm through the serial number. But with Gunowner Identity Theft Coverage, an Independent Program Attorney will have your back and help you navigate the complicated legal system.
There are also things you can do to help yourself before you become the victim.
Start Preparing Now, Before Disaster Strikes…
There is no federal gun registry, and most states do not mandate registration or documentation of firearms, so it is imperative for members to privately keep track of their firearm information. This includes a list of firearms with their makes, models, and serial numbers. Additionally, the documentation should list where the firearm was purchased and when it came into the gun owner’s possession.
Storing Your Information
It is always a good idea to keep documentation of your firearm separate from the firearm itself, in case your home or vehicle is ever burglarized.
Should you ever need the information, keep a hard copy safely stored in a fireproof lockbox. An encrypted USB drive or cloud-based software is a good option for digital copies. If your gun is stolen and you can’t provide this information to law enforcement, the chances of you recovering your stolen firearm are slim to none.
