Company follows in the footsteps of another insurance heavyweight

    I'M HAPPY TO HEAR LOCKTON CHUBB AND OTHER COMPANIES ARE TAKING A STAND AGAINST THE NRA'S MANIC DESIRE TO ARM AMERICA WITH NO CONSIDERATION TO SAFETY AND COMMON SENSE. WE ARE A DEMOCRACY NOT A COUNTRY BOUND BY THE MONEY AND INFLUENCE OF CORPORATIONS AND SPECIAL GREEDY INTERESTS. I WILL BE CHECKING THE AFFILIATIONS OF ALL COMPANIES I DO BUSINESS WITH GOING FORWARD.

      No consideration to safety? Are you serious? The NRA has many instructors and holds many courses in safety and proper handling, storage, and use of firearms. Please don't speak about what you don't know. Also, please never use all caps to get your point across. It doesn't work.
  • Confounded | 27 Feb 2018, 10:07 AM Agree 0
    I don't see the correlation here. An unstable teen shoots up a school so let's pull the insurance for the program that offers protection to gun owners that shoot in self-defense? One has nothing to do with the other...and if a teacher had a gun in this situation they could have probably saved lives.
    • | 27 Feb 2018, 10:51 AM Agree 1
      Exactly, for companies like Hertz and Avis, If a drunk climbs in one of your rental vehicles and kills someone, which it probably has been done thousands of times, how would you feel if Americans started boycotting your company for killing an innocent bystander?
  • Givenuponsociety | 27 Feb 2018, 10:19 AM Agree 1
    Confounded - You don't see the correlation because you are using common sense which unfortunately has flown out the window in our new "Safe Space" society.
  • Jen F. | 27 Feb 2018, 10:22 AM Agree 0
    Thank you Lockton as an industry professional, daughter of a teacher and mother.
  • Confounded 2 | 27 Feb 2018, 10:22 AM Agree 0
    I have to agree Confounded. I see no correlation between a troubled teen and the NRA or the legal gun owner. The NRA does not make the laws or establish protocol. And why are the legal gun owners being discriminated against again. If you want to see what happens when you remove guns from law abiding citizens take a look at the increased gun violence in Chicago, DC or any other city that has strict gun laws. The average citizen is following the rules but the criminal could care less and it makes his life a lot easier and safer because now he doesn't have to worry about getting shot when he commits a crime. Fix the mental issue in this country and leave the gun owners alone.
  • Patriot | 27 Feb 2018, 10:31 AM Agree 1
    Alcohol is illegal for underage persons but they get it routinely. Pot and other drugs are illegal but people of all ages get it routinely. Driving impaired is illegal but it happens routinely causing more deaths than guns. When we outlaw guns those that do the harm now will still get them routinely. Banning guns may make you feel good but when one is pointed at you, you will wish you had an alternative, one that too many law abiding citizens wish to surrender to the criminal.
  • Disgusted | 27 Feb 2018, 10:32 AM Agree 0
    This is obviously a political decision, not a moral or practical one. I will tend to do business with those companies that stay out of political debates which should be for private citizens and politicians, not corporations.
  • Calvin | 27 Feb 2018, 10:36 AM Agree 0
    Are you suggesting the teacher(s) should've been armed with the same type weapons as the deputies or with an AR15 like the criminal?

      A shotgun would be a better alternative. 20 gauge pump.
  • Brandon | 27 Feb 2018, 10:47 AM Agree 0
    So what you are telling me is that Chubb, Metlife, Delta, Hertz, Avis etc. That no one that works for these companies including the owners, CEO, Managers, employees don't own any guns. Did everyone of these people sell their guns and ammunition? BS. Hypocritical morons. Hey Hertz and Avis, if drunks are operating your vehicles, would you except a boycott on your business? Think about that. Stupid
  • Melissa | 27 Feb 2018, 10:48 AM Agree 0
    Happy to see more companies discontinuing affiliations with the NRA. It is past time that we take steps towards positive change for our country and gun violence. Thankful companies are doing their part to bring change to the conversation.
  • Surprised | 27 Feb 2018, 10:56 AM Agree 0
    A correlation is a relationship between two or more things and/or connections. You have stated just two, however, many things/connections have occurred to have led to this point. Studies have shown that the a big majority favor some sort of gun restriction(s) which is completely contrary to the stated beliefs of LaPierre and the NRA leadership.
  • Doug | 27 Feb 2018, 10:59 AM Agree 0
    Wrong!! We are not a Democracy, we are a Constitutional Republic. The NRA has not once advocated for the arming of criminals and lunatics but for the arming of responsible American citizens to be able to protect themselves and their families from these very dangers, including a tyranical government who for whatever the reason would willingly take away our God given rights to own a firearm. If you don't want to own a gun that is your choice, but owning one is my right, and there are a whole lot more of us common folk than there are of you sell outs. If you want to stop this horrible wave of mass shootings start with the way we have been raising our children, teach them some real values, right from wrong, and that life isn't always gonna go your way, teach them responsible gun handling, and the meaning of the word NO! Stop allowing them to play violent video games and watch violent TV shows...it all boils down to parents actually being parents and taking a hard line and this crap will stop. We didn't have this problem when I was a kid and we had just as many guns then as we do now and we never has a problem.
    • bja | 28 Feb 2018, 10:31 AM Agree 0
      Thank you, sir. The problem is not the NRA or the guns. It is a society that has been raised on the La La Land idea of " I am ok, you are ok, we are all ok". And parents too busy wanting to be their children's friend instead of being THE PARENT.

    Wrong thing to do! Caving to a political whim is not good business when you have people and clients on the other side of the issue. There are two sides to every issue, and this was a wrong choice!
  • I Get It | 27 Feb 2018, 11:03 AM Agree 0
    I don't understand why you don't see a correlation here. The NRA has stood and continues to stand against sensible gun laws. Laws that can prevent future massacres. They don't want to raise the minimum age to own guns. They are against banning bump stocks. They are against enhanced background checks. They are the biggest lobbyists by far to go against what the majority of Americans want concerning firearms. Corporations can't vote. So they are doing their part to make their voices heard. NRA members are close to 5 million. The other 295 million of American citizens have a voice as well. This is a prime example why powerful special interest have no place in Washington. I applaud this decision by Lockton and Chubb and Delta and anyone else that wants to fall on the side of the majority of Americans.
  • Charlton Heston | 27 Feb 2018, 11:06 AM Agree 0
    @Linda Operle, no, we're not a democracy. We're a republic. A republic is governed by the rule of law, not the whims of men. And, in the republic known as the United States, our Constitution specifically protects the right to keep and bear arms. That's what the NRA exists. And, thank goodness they do. Because if people like you had their way, every answer to government incompetence (how many times were the local sheriff and even the FBI warned about Cruz's likelihood of violence?) would be to restrict the rights of law-abiding citizens simply because it "feels" like you're doing something. Most people would support reasonable security enhancements (upping the purchase age from 18 to 21, better mental health screening as part of the background check process, etc.) but nonsensical ranting and irrational vilifying like yours just turns people off completely. As much as you may hate them, all you're doing is making the NRA's job that much easier.

  • Grounded | 27 Feb 2018, 11:17 AM Agree 0
    It has to do with the unhealthy fear mongering that's embedded in the cultural delusion that you need more guns to protect against guns. It's terrible to think that people want more guns around kids, when this was the issue that caused the problem in the first place.
    If a teacher was armed, what's stopping them from being mistaken for the shooter and killed by the police? What if they accidently shoot an innocent student? What if a student gets ahold of their gun and kills someone? Clearly, this is not thought through. Every major country in the world has renounced wanton gun ownership except the US and it has an exponentially higher number of child gun deaths than the rest of the world. See Australia's response to gun control.
  • Roger | 27 Feb 2018, 11:29 AM Agree 0
    I am absolutely amazed at how quickly we cast the blame for these outrageous events on a piece of metallic hardware. I doubt that at any time a pistol, a rifle, a BB gun, or an Army tank has caused harm to one person without the guidance of a human mindset controlling it. The devil with which we are dealing is one of a demented mentality- not a piece of cold metal. We will not find a solution to the random mass murders by trying to ostracize those who elect to manufacture or sell these weapons. And, in case you wonder, the only weapon I own is a broken BB gun!
  • Joe Harrington | 27 Feb 2018, 11:32 AM Agree 0
    There's some irony here. The firearms insurance programs sponsored by the NRA and other organizations actually do what public safety advocates proposed after the Newtown shootings: establish a third party (an insurer) with a big financial stake in seeing that a firearm was used lawfully and carefully.

    Sadly, we have far more guns than we have firearms insurance policies. We cannot begin to control gun violence until our culture comes to view commerce in firearms as entailing responsibilities as well as rights.
  • | 27 Feb 2018, 11:38 AM Agree 0
    If u don't see the correlation between guns that should be limited to war and what happened here and in Vegas and on and on , then you clearly don't have children or if u do then u have still not awaken to the reality . The fact that u are " confounded " is amazing to me . Please WAKE up ..
    • marathonman17 | 05 Mar 2018, 05:03 PM Agree 0
      Are you placing yourself in charge of deciding which guns "should be limited to war". The average non-gun-owning feel good voter would include all semi-automatic weapons in that category. Thus banning virtually all legitimate self defense weapons.
  • Kevin | 27 Feb 2018, 11:47 AM Agree 0
    Guns are here to stay. It is naïve to think that you can take them all away. Try and only the criminals will have them. I think you should do all you can to support the NRA. Seems to me, you would do every thing possible to support any organization that encourages responsible gun ownership. That is just good risk management. Insurance companies should be all about risk management. I don't think we would discontinue drivers education just because someone uses a vehicle to commit murder.
  • TexasAgent | 27 Feb 2018, 11:49 AM Agree 0

  • Compassion | 27 Feb 2018, 12:21 PM Agree 0
    Let's stop blaming everyone but the cause of the root problem. So typical! That is why we have these problems. Someone cuts you off and pretends not to see you - not taking responsibility. This starts with the example set at home. Start taking responsibility for you own actions, including compassion for others. Wake up, we are raising a society of people who don't care about anyone but themselves. If they want to take themselves out, why not others with them. it means nothing to them. The NRA is NOT the problem. Start taking responsibility!

    For years, anti-gun people have pushed for gun owners to get more training and to carry insurance -- sometimes (as we saw in NY in 2013, truly ridiculous levels of insurance).

    Now they are busy trying to put training and insurance companies out of business.

    Can't have it both ways, folks.
  • Great Equalizer | 27 Feb 2018, 01:03 PM Agree 0
    What I love about this is Chubb and Lockton are only hurting themselves by being weak. This is the great Capitalist equalizer and Shapiro outlines it best. Capitalism has no prejudice, no political opinion. If that business was profitable, someone else will quickly step in and swoop it up. The NRA won't skip a beat. Chubb and Lockton will probably alienate an equal if not greater number of people that support the 2nd amendment then they've served here and life will go on. Other than a few headlines this will have zero impact on anything. The answer to the problem is moving closer to the second amendment, not further away from it. Protect the schools like they are federal buildings, let people that are licensed carry guns and the problem will next to disappear.
  • Fed up | 27 Feb 2018, 01:09 PM Agree 0
    A kid goes on a mental rampage and we get screwed because of it? Talk about knee-jerk reactions. They continue to throw the blame around. What is wrong with today's society? No respect, no honor, no truth. It's all about the money.

    Why don't you point the finger at the company who built the school? Why don't you blame the parents for sending the kids to public school? Why don't you blame the principal for not arming the teachers decades ago? Why don't you take away all the steak knives in the country, furnaces, space heaters and swimming pools? These items cause more death that firearms combined. Look it up, know the facts and stop being sheeple.
  • Robbo | 27 Feb 2018, 01:23 PM Agree 0
    The FBI dropped the ball by ignoring valid tips that the murderer was unstable, violent and had access to a gun. The Broward County Sheriffs Office ignored tips that the murderer was unstable, violent and had access to a gun. The Broward County Sheriffs Office visited the murderer between 23 and 36 times in the prior years in response to complaints that he was unstable, violent and had committed domestic assault.
    The government's background check FAILED.
    The federal system (FBI) negligently ignored complaints. The federal check FAILED.
    The BCSO visited the murderer for violent behavior, yet did nothing- ignored its own history with the murderer. The county check FAILED.
    Every step of the way, the "something" that all the anti-gun people insist be implemented- and was in place in this case- FAILED.
    Don't dare ask for greater restrictions on our civil rights if you won't even use the restrictions that are already in place.

    Why is it EVERY time there is a major school shooting THAT LIBERALS and the uneducated gun haters blame the NRA and GUNS. I'm 70 years old, a combat veteran and I have never seen a gun of any caliber shoot one human being. Nor have I ever heard of the NRA advocating any school shooting or the murder of all person. If you are worring about gun violence then remove the GUN FREE ZONE signs and other signs that say "you can murder anyone you want here."
    The NRA teaches gun safety, the history of guns, marksmanship of gun and so many other programs.THEY DON'T THEACH ABOUT MURDER. So why DON'T you see what the NRA really is about. Remember the NRA hasn't murdered 500,000,000 lives thru ABORTION as have the LIBERALS.

    Have to agree, but not with Linda. The NRA, like them or hate them, argues from a Constitutional instead of an emotional position. Their lobbying cash is a statistical peanut, but not their loyal members, who vote AND resent the Democratic Party piggybacking on murdered students rather than seeking solutions.
    Obama era gun-control hysteria made the AR-15 the most purchased gun in US history (displacing an inexpensive .22 plinker)so that genie is already out of the bottle. But the same carnage could have been caused with 1897 firearms technology.

    OK, Guns don't kill, people do. Well, insurance companies don't sue for shooting people, lawyers and the injured do. Insurance companies help cover your exposure to losses. When insurance companies see a risk too great they will either stop selling a policy or raise te rates. If another insurance company feels they can make money, they will start offering the policies. The insurance companies are not the bad guys here, they like every other business need to make money to pay their expenses.

    @ I Get It
    I m afraid you don't get it. In 2016, there were under 13,000 murders in this country. Firearm were responsible for under 9000. 396 for ALL classes of rifle, an AR15 is a subset so its less than that. In 2016, over 6000 murders were committed knives. Please explain why you are willing to ban a guns and not knives? As far as anyone knows there has been only 1 crime (with many multiple counts) committed with a bump stock. I do believe the genie is out of the bottle with the bump stock. The trouble is there are thousands maybe a million of bump stocks out there and no one knows who owns them. They were never registered. The NRA wants them registered like an automatic weapon. Its a huge practical pattern. The NRA is not against enhanced background checks. The have been pushing for enhanced background checks for 30 years. They want civil and criminal penalties for governmental agencies who fail in their duties. In the last 2 mass shootings, multiple government agencies failed in duties. While it maybe true that a majority of American are behind some form of gun control, you loose them on the detail. There are about 300 million people in the country and gun ownership that we know about is 1.1. with 3.1 million guns that means there are many more gun owners than the NRA's 5 million. The 2nd Amendment gives Americans the right to own firearms. This was a guarantee that the citizen has resources if the government tries to enslave them. If you want to ban guns then you need a constitutional amendment. This has never been attempted because the gun control people do not have the support. All these companies who take this type of stand are going to take in on the chin. Those other 150 million gun owners will make them pay. As for my sources, crime stats came directly from the FBI, gun ownership is an average of what different research organization predict.
  • GM | 28 Feb 2018, 01:26 PM Agree 0
    I think decisions like this will come to haunt Chubb, and all those other companies. They were being threatened by boycotts by the anti bots. The gun owners, estimated to be close to 50% of the country, they wont argue, kick up a fuss. They just wont ever use those companies again. Very short sighted.

    I'm sure we all wish we could stop mass shootings by passing stricter gun laws, or cancelling insurance plans, but most Americans realize that's not going to fix the problem. Businesses like Lockton should stick to the business at hand, and remain out of the political realm. It just hurts your business.
  • | 03 Mar 2018, 02:02 PM Agree 0
    A knee jerk reaction providing no solutions. Punishing the members of the NRA makes no sense as they committed no offense. One question needs to be asked... why are schools the only public access buildings with no form of security? Why can’t medical professionals report unstable people to authorities for gun removal. Guns dont kill people without very disturbed people behind them. Tantamount to removing cars from drunk or drugged drivers. No... corporations making reactionary moves such as Lockton d9 not provide solutions and will have no impact. Half the people will think it’s great and the other half will stop doing business with them....
  • Ins Agent - NRA Member | 03 Mar 2018, 02:08 PM Agree 0
    Absolutely brutal knee-jerk reaction of evidently closet Libtard management teams. Through this reaction, Chubb, MetLife and others are now "outed". Like other contributors, my agency will be leveraging this fact against Chubb, MetLife and their ilk. After 33 years in the business, I am focusing our commercial marketing on likely "middle" or "right-wing" clientele, as our experience with the left-wingers is marginal at best. This is both in daily interactions and to a lesser extent, loss experience. Look forward to seeing how this pans out in the marketplace with these pandering corporations.

    Absolutely ridiculous. Those who obtain insurance are responsibly armed citizens who take the right to own, carry and potentially is a gun in self defense very seriously. The insurance is to help them cover the overwhelming legal expenses involved in proving their actions were justifiable. Just imagine the outcry if auto insurance companies withdrew coverages for those owning and driving sports cars like Farraris or Lamprguinnis (sorry about the spelling)! Nothing but uniformed and politically motivated strong arming of law abiding citizens who think differently than they do. Eventually, the boycotting of such organizations will be impacting.
