Self Defense Insurance Options

Although we are calling this Self Defense Insurance (because you sure hope you’ll never need it) we are really talking about the three types of plans that are currently on the market.

Open Carry versus Concealed Carry

Depending upon where you live the practice of open carrying may or may not be legal.  Always make sure you understand the laws before carry openly or concealed.  Some states like Ohio allow open carry without a license, in Tennessee you need a license, and in Florida it’s illegal completely.  Laws do change also so always double check.
