Refuse to be a Victim

NRA Refuse To Be A Victim®

NRA developed the Refuse To Be A Victim® program in 1993. Today, hundreds of law enforcement agencies, along with thousands of civilian instructors, utilize this award-winning program across the nation to facilitate personal safety and crime prevention.

Firearm training is not part of the Refuse To Be A Victim® curriculum. This program neither encourages nor discourages firearm ownership but does support an individual’s constitutional right to choose whether to own a firearm.

These seminars are designed to heighten awareness of what can and should be done to stay safe. Topics in this 4.5-hour seminar include:

  • Mental Preparedness: Don’t ignore your instincts. If something feels wrong, it probably is.
  • Home Security: Ensuring that your home is properly secured inside and outside.
  • Cyber Security: Avoiding vulnerability in a digital age.
  • Physical Security: Preparing yourself for any situation that may arise.
  • Travel Security: Making sure you are safe no matter where you are.
  • Automobile Security: Equipping yourself with the necessities for any type of situation

As an NRA Certified Refuse To Be A Victim® Instructor, I am pleased to offer the seminar to both public and private groups. Please contact me for special group rates.

Join the NRA

Every responsible gun owner should also be a member of the National Rifle Association (NRA). As such, I encourage you to join the NRA, the oldest civil rights organization in America and our chief defender of Second Amendment Rights.

I am proud to be an Endowment Member of NRA. This classification used to be known as “Life Member” because it meant that you had paid your dues “for life.” While it still means “for life,” it now means that one has made a lifetime contribution to the endowment of the organization.

The NRA offers outstanding benefits to its members. Every month I look forward to receiving my copy of American Rifleman. In its pages I continue my education on firearms as well as keep up with NRA efforts to support and protect our Constitutional Right to keep and bear arms.
