“People who have seen what happened to Zimmerman began to consider their own circumstances and asked how would their life be affected if something like that happened to them,” said attorney Edwin Walker, co-founder of Texas Law Shield.
“There are about half-a-dozen crimes where a person can be charged if they simply display or discharge their weapon,” Walker said. “You don’t have to shoot someone to get in trouble.”
Mark Walters, a spokesman for the United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA), said interest in the company’s services has “phones ringing off the hook,” in the aftermath of the Zimmerman verdict.
The USCCA offers coverage to gun owners through its Self-Defense Shield plan. The platinum plus package provides $500,000 to gun owners who have to settle or pay any civil claims that arise from self defense gun uses. USCCA has about 60,000 members, Walters said.
“If someone’s carrying a firearm and they have to display or discharge their weapon and it is reported to police, they should anticipate charges being brought,” Walters said. If you make a decision to carry a weapon or have a firearm in our home, you should consider taking out one of these types of policies.
People are often surprised to find out their home owners policy or their liability umbrella insurance does not cover them for a self-defense shooting. Most insurance policies exclude coverage for intentional acts. And protecting yourself and your family with a firearm would be considered an intentional act.
I would recommend the coverage offered by USCCA (Untied States Conceal Carry Association) even if you don't carry a firearm. Here is their link USCCA Conceal Carry Association.

The state of Washington will no longer recognize conceal carry permits issued from the state of Florida.
Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson has revoked the concealed weapons permit reciprocity with Florida as April 25, 2013. This decision was based on Florida lowering the minimum age requirement from 21 to 18, for our men and women who have served in our military.
Options; if you want to carry concealed in Washington and you are not a resident of Washington, get a Utah carry permit.
In my opinion if you are under the age of 21 and have a carry permit. I would only carry in the state that issued the permit. My personal reasoning would be, even if a state recognized my permit, they probably have laws about persons under the age of 21 possessing a handgun. Anyway just my two cents.
Just another reason with our ever changing laws to have more than one permit, more overlapping the better.
As many of you know, I recently went to Lt. Col. Dave Grossman seminar, it was incredible!
Quote from Tim Schmidt;
“Most of the people in our society are sheep.They are kind, gentle, productive creatures who can only hurt one another by accident.” I mean nothing negative by calling them sheep. To me it is like the pretty, blue robin’s egg. Inside it is soft and gooey but someday it will grow into something wonderful. But the egg cannot survive without its hard blue shell. Police officers, soldiers, and other warriors are like that shell, and someday the civilization

The State of Nevada will no longer recognize conceal carry permits issued from Arizona.
On February 28, 2013, the Nevada Sheriffs' and Chiefs' Association voted to end the recognition of Arizona concealed weapons permit base on the changes to Arizona's permit issuing requirements. And stating the states (Arizona) arms training requirements aren't up to Nevada's standards.
Some of the determining factors was the removal of minimum training requirements and the removal of the statutory marksmanship.
Nevada started recognizing Arizona's permit on July 1, 2011 and has ended as of March 1, 2013.
