NRA Refuse To Be A Victim®



FBI says 1 in 5 homes will be victimized by a violent home invasion or burglary.

There is a violent crime committed every 19 seconds!

You don't have to be a statistic. YOU DO HAVE A CHOICE.


Attend our REFUSE TO BE A VICTIM® Seminar and you can learn the personal safety tips and techniques you need to avoid dangerous situations and AVOID BEING A VICTIM.


Safety experts agree the single most important step toward ensuring your personal safety is making the conscious decision to Refuse To Be A Victim®. You stand a much better chance of preventing criminal attack if you develop a safety plan before you need it. That is why we are offering the NRA Refuse To Be A Victim® crime prevention seminar.

Considering the importance that most families place on smoke detectors and fire escape plans, it’s worth knowing that you are more than three times as likely to be the victim of a violent crime than you are to be the victim of a residential fire, and you are more than 58 times as likely to be assaulted than you are to be injured in a home fire.


The seminar includes classroom instruction on a variety of crime prevention strategies, from criminal psychology to automobile crimes to cyber crime. Seminars can vary in length, and may be modified to suit the needs of a particular audience. This is not a firearms instruction course, and does not include instruction in physical combat or self-defense. Seminars teach about common weaknesses that criminals may take advantage of, and teaches a variety of corrective measures that are practical, inexpensive, and easy to follow.


Strategies include home security, carjack avoidance techniques, cyber safety, and use of personal safety devices. A complete seminar may last as long as eight hours and include the entire lesson plan, but a modified seminar may be as short as 90 minutes and address specific topics. Students will receive the Refuse To Be A Victim student handbook, NRA Refuse To Be A Victim® brochure, Refuse To Be A Victim® Firearms Supplement, and a course completion certificate. In just three to four hours, you will get the tools you need to develop your own personal safety strategy.


Some of the topics discussed will be:

  • The Psychology of the Criminal Mind
  • Know what criminals look for in a victim
  • Situational Awareness and Avoidance Techniques
  • Internet and Cyber Safety
  • Home & Phone Security

"FBI statistics say 3 out 4 women (75%) will be a victim of a violent crime at some point in their life".

This NRA course focuses on proactive courses of action, rather than reactive. Criminals prefer easy targets. By making yourself more difficult to prey upon, you lessen your risk of criminal attack. That means having a personal safety strategy in place before you need it.

The information covered is appropriate for young adults, women, the disabled, parents, senior citizens etc. In addition, the Refuse To Be A Victim® program materials also include special teaching modules for parents which discusses tips for children ages pre-school to college, the handicapped and more.
