What does my $85 membership fee buy me?
• An initial $5,000 fee deposit paid to the member's attorney by the Network if the member has been involved in a self-defense incident. The fee deposit gets the legal defense immediately underway, with representation during questioning, and arranging for an independent investigation of the incident.
• Network members defending against unmeritirious prosecution or civil litigation after a self defense incident occuring during their period of membership are also eligible for additional grants of financial aid from the Armed Citizens’ Legal Defense Foundation, a separate non-profit foundation.
• In addition, the Network is working to create a nationwide network of affiliated attorneys and legal experts upon which the member can draw in the event of a self-defense shooting. Members' attorneys can also request case review by one of the Network’s experts, paid for by the Network, with findings and advice forwarded to the member’s lawyer.
Other membership benefits include:
-DVDs by major players in the justifiable use of deadly force field sent each new member for their preliminary education; continuing educational DVDs are renewal premiums, with the 2009 DVD covering pre-assault indicators and how they influence the self defense decision-making process.
-Access to the Network’s expert witnesses.
-Discounts on books and videos sold on the Network’s web site.
