Georgia gun owner Kimberly Wright was involved in a road rage incident in August 2021 where an aggressive driver followed her to a Walmart parking lot and attempted to attack her with a hammer. When Wright, who had a permit to carry and was also a member of U.S. LawShield, removed her firearm from her purse, the assailant fled the scene. Matt Kilgo, an Independent Program Attorney for U.S. LawShield, answered Wright’s call following the incident, and with her attorney’s guidance, she spoke with the police and an arrest warrant was issued for the driver who attacked her.

The suspect was subsequently arrested, charged and indicted for ag­gravated assault with a deadly weapon, but not before filing a warrant request against Wright for allegedly starting the confrontation and point­ing a pistol at her. Kilgo was successful in defending the member from the suspect’s accusation, however, and the warrant request was dismissed. Wright’s attacker pleaded “not guilty” to the charge of aggravated assault and, at the time of this writing, is still awaiting trial. For Wright’s part, this was a clear case of the advantages of having some type of personal protection insurance that will cover you legally should you find yourself in a defensive legal jam.
