    texas law shield, armed citizen or similar

    Has anybody used them? Are you members? I read the story of Mr. Hickey on the armed citizens website and I think what happened to him could have been avoided with money or their help. What makes me almost want nothing to do with the armed citizen is the statement I am about to paraphrase because I dont remember exactly.

    " Mr. Hickey is a trainer at a school that we offer instructors free membership, but because he didnt sign up we are not going to offer the funding to help him out"

    I think thats complete BS, I understand the arguement that because he wasnt signed up he dosnet derserve the benefit. But because he was a teacher and supported their product it should have been allowed. I know with the way society is going that some of us will end up in court over protecting ourselfs, family and complete innocent bystanders. My vote in the poll is I will join a network similar to one of these or maybe one of them after I have contacted them for my wife and I.

    In the meantime, I'd kindly ask that you contribute something useful 'round these parts, or pick up and crawl back to the hole you snuck out of. I'm frankly okay with either one, just pick one please

    Evidently no one seems to know what you're talking about.

    A basic rule of insurance is that if you don't apply or pay, you don't get covered. You kinda have to meet them half way. He missed step one. Texas Law Shield is a prepaid legal service program. It is a for profit group and they only work for members. Mr Hickey made a decision-no coverage-and the lawyers have no duty to pay for his legal fees. Mr Hickey is an adult. He makes his own decisions, then lives with the results.

    I am not a member of a Law Shield but I can sure see where having someone/or some outfit in my corner should the need ever arise would sure make me feel better, especially when I had my day(s) in court.
    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    I think it is better to know the law, know your rights and have an attorneys contact info available.

    Steve, I am interested in some clarification on your quote here because I am not clear about which site you have taken it from. You mention the 'Armed Citizens' site, yet the quote does not appear anywhere there that I can find. I do not believe that Mr. Hickey is a member with us. Could you please link to it so I may address it more specifically?

    I think thats complete BS, I understand the arguement that because he wasnt signed up he dosnet derserve the benefit.

    I'm glad that you understand that someone who has not paid for a service has no claim to, or right to that service for free.

    But because he was a teacher and supported their product it should have been allowed.

    Any business is grateful for support and kind words from potential customers, yet that does not constitute giving their services or products away. I like the car dealer near my house and I say nice things about them, but they aren't going to give me a Buick. I know that you see the logic here.

    I know with the way society is going that some of us will end up in court over protecting ourselfs, family and complete innocent bystanders. My vote in the poll is I will join a network similar to one of these or maybe one of them after I have contacted them for my wife and I.

    Personally, I have memberships with two legal 'shield ' companies, and I am on staff at the Armed Citizens Legal Defense Network, as noted in my signature. I find the products to be well worth the money and completely honest i their representation of the benefits of membership. Of course, every individual must make that determination for themselves.

    As a member of USCCA, I am automatically covered by a shield, and have a lawyer of record in case I need it.

    I keep getting emails from them ( USCCA). Must have clicked on something. Have not looked at it much, but can you find out how much it costs. Before you sign-up? I'm just starting to look around for this kind of service.

    Assuming they will never raise the prices and you keep it for 20 years, you'll have given them $2628 that you could have used to buy guns or ammo or something else that is actually worth what you pay for it.

    Mr. Hickey is an idiot, sadly enough.

    He didn't enter into a contract, whether a service or insurance.

    Because he did not enter into a contract, he does not get the benefit of having done so.

    Mr. Hickey is an idiot.

    Consider the following: Employee A is a Teacher, and opts out of Health Insurance XX as Teacher A is covered by his/her spousal Health Insurance YY. Teacher A learns he/she needs a brain transplant. Teacher wants wants Health Insurance XX to pay for transplant because Health Insurance YY excludes brain transplants.

    Health Insurance XX laughs at Teacher A and Denies Coverage.

    Teacher A still needs a brain.

    Take responsibility and live with the consequences. Be a grown up. Stop asking someone else to hold the bag for self-inflicted problems.

    Mr. Hickey is an idiot.

    And this post is three years old, so Teacher A died already.
