About Norton Shield

We help you feel confident and prepared to keep your loved ones safe through home defense and permit-to-carry classes.

Norton Shield Responsible Ownership & Carry, LLC is proud to offer up-to-date education and professional permit to carry (conceal & carry) classes.

Drawing a firearm in a defensive event is a very serious event. Norton Shield is dedicated to training clients to exercise proper restraint prior to an event and proper judgement during a crisis. Our primary emphasis is on avoiding having to use your firearm in the first place. We accomplish that goal by stressing situational awareness, conflict avoidance, de-escalation, and home preparedness. Of course, not every situation can be avoided so we delve deeply into the Supreme Court’s definition of a justifiable shooting. Plus answer the question, “What happens after a firearm is drawn and/or discharged?”
