    Another Wrongfully Accused Gun Owner Protected By Firearm Legal Defence Insurance

    Hello Everyone!

    We're happy to share another recent example of Firearm Legal Defence protecting another wrongfully accused gun owner. Also click here to watch her interview with our friends as TheGunBlog.ca: https://thegunblog.ca/2020/10/24/red...away-her-guns/

    After a few years of dedication to her craft as a sport shooter, Kassandra (name changed at clients request) passed her IPSC Black Badge Safety Training Program with flying colors, allowing her to compete in sanctioned IPSC matches as a full-fledged member. Kassandra was overjoyed to be progressing in her sport and was looking forward to some upcoming IPSC matches. But her joy and excitement would quickly succumb to fear and anguish.

    It was just a few days after passing her Black Badge Course when Kassandra heard an aggressive knock on her apartment door late in the evening. Dressed in a nighty, she opened the door to two police officers who barged into her apartment along with two Paramedics. The officers immediately put Kassandra in handcuffs, restrained her on the Paramedics’ stretcher, then proceeded to search her apartment for anything they could find to lay charges. Feeling violated and vulnerable and in a state of complete shock, Kassandra was forced to provide answers to the police officers’ aggressive line of questioning. “Where is your other ammunition stored?” and “Where is your other gun?” they demanded, trying to catch her up and find a way to lay charges. That night, Kassandra’s firearms were seized and her firearm licence was revoked under the criminal code. In a matter of minutes, Kassandra’s life was turned upside down, she was made to feel like a criminal, even though she had been following Canada’s firearm regulations by the book.

    So why did the police show up at Kassandra’s apartment in the first place? It turns out that Kassandra’s ex-husband, in an attempt at revenge, made a false report to police that Kassandra was struggling with depression and severe mental health issues and had firearms in the house. Unfortunately, that’s all it takes to turn someone’s life into a living nightmare. Kassandra was shattered, she didn’t know where to turn or how she would ever get her property returned and her firearm licence back. The sport shooting community was such a big part of Kassandra’s life and she wanted it back.

    Remembering that she was a policy holder, Kassandra called Firearm Legal Defence and explained her situation. She was assigned to a lawyer who immediately provided Kassandra with legal advice and began work on her case. Kassandra felt an overwhelming sense of relief, knowing that someone was on her side and was there to help her navigate through the legal system.

    Kassandra was apprehended under Canada’s Mental Health Act. It took months and many meetings with the crown attorney for Kassandra’s lawyer to persuade the crown to drop the application against her. Citing physician reports, a stack of personal references, and demonstrating the history of Kassandra’s accuser, her lawyer proved that Kassandra was mentally fit to possess firearms. With the evidence now stacked in Kassandra’s favor, the crown attorney dropped the application, paving the way for Kassandra’s firearms to be returned and her firearm licence reinstated.

    Kassandra’s Firearm Legal Defence policy appointed her a qualified lawyer with experience handling firearm related cases and covered all her legal expenses, totaling over $11,000. Had Kassandra’s case proceeded to court, her legal costs would have been substantially more.

    “Accessing help when I needed it through Firearm Legal Defence was easy. My calls were responded to promptly, everything was done in a timely manner and the customer service was excellent. In times of stress under those circumstances, there was such a sense of relief knowing that someone was in my corner” said a greatly relieved Kassandra.


    With no accountability put on an accuser, a phone call is all it takes for a disgruntle partner, co worker, neighbor or family member to turn your life upside down. Go to www.firearmlegaldefence.com and purchase protection today.

    Will the insurance company be suing the ex-partner to recover the legal cost and seek punitive damages?

    In relation to this, I’d be curious to know a few things:

    a) what charges were laid against her? You state that the cops were trying to find reasons to charge her. If non were laid, how do you come to the conclusion that they were doing that?

    b) what application was filed by the crown you guys got dropped? A firearms prohibition?

    Just curious, thanks

    Good job Zach. I actually put your site as a favourite just a short while ago.

    Look around is there someone you can introduce to shooting because that’s the only way we will buck the anti gun trend sweeping Canada! "tigrr 2006"

    The call made by the EX should be treated as a "Swatting" call. And I am glad I joined FLD.
