The National Rifle Association is firing back at California and defending its decision to offer insurance policies to its members.
The NRA says it did nothing wrong by selling insurance that covers legal costs for injury or damage from legally using a gun.
On Tuesday, the State Department of Insurance issued a cease and desist order charging that the NRA sold the product without a state license.
The order demands they stop selling what they call a "self-defense insurance policy" called Carry Guard.
If the NRA refuses, it could face a fine of $5,000 a day for violations.
So far, about 2,400 Californians have the policy.
