Houston, Texas –– U.S. LawShield®, industry leader and America’s foremost provider of educational resources on self-defense law and safe firearm ownership, announces President Kirk Evans as a guest on the popular National Police Association (NPA) podcast, the NPA Report. The podcast interview will air beginning on Sunday, June 5 at 10 AM ET and is available to watch on YouTube.com/NationalPoliceAssociation.
“Speaking with Sgt. Betsy Brantner Smith, the host of the NPA Report podcast, was an honor,” said U.S. LawShield President Kirk Evans. “Whether people are new to gun ownership or have lawfully owned firearms for a lifetime, we recognize there is confusion around gun laws. Our conversation provided an opportunity to describe our educational programs and how they help folks learn the ways that the laws and regulations affect them as responsible gun owners.”
According to Sgt. Smith, “As the law enforcement community deals with the evolving permitless carry laws across the country, now is the perfect time to address questions about how U.S. LawShield coverage works for legally armed citizens in the aftermath of a deadly force situation,” she said. “Kirk offers suggestions for how those citizens should consider interacting with police and what they can do to protect themselves legally. U.S. LawShield also offers protection for on and off-duty police officers, an important distinction in an increasingly litigious society,” Smith added.
"We are committed to building safer communities through education,” said Evans. “With 14 million reported new gun owners over the past two years, it is crucial they have access to firearms education and information on how existing laws affect them as responsible gun owners,” he added.
U.S. LawShield coverage defends individual law enforcement officers, security personnel, and other first responders. Plus, affordable options are available for law enforcement departments and agencies, including all U.S. LawShield benefits.
About the National Police Association (NPA)
The NPA brings attention to the anti-police efforts challenging effective law enforcement through mailings, national TV and radio public service announcements, legal filings on behalf of police officers and agencies, original articles authored for the NPA by law enforcement experts, book publishing, and our podcast. Additionally, the National Police Association Report can be seen Sundays at 10 AM EST online at PlutoTV CH 244, on TheFirstTV.com app, and anytime on our YouTube channel.
In addition to education, the NPA uses a dynamic combination of assertive legal filings, in-depth investigations, and clear communications to advance a mission of combating the influence of anti-police activists and helping to hold them accountable. We use the law as a method to highlight abuses by anti-police elected officials, change behavior, and seek corrective action. In addition, we promote policies that encourage public officials to work with police in the public interest, not for the benefit of powerful special interests.
