Experiment: Free shotguns and training, to study effect on crime

Quote:A former mayoral candidate in Tucson, Ariz., is drawing heated criticism from Democrats after he launched a program this week to hand out free shotguns in high-crime neighborhoods.
Shaun McClusky, who kicked off the program Monday, financed it with initial donor commitments of $12,000. He told that with those private donations alone, he can arm and train 36 people -- and hopes to begin that process in 60 days.

Quote:The program, though, is actually the brainchild of a master's student at the University of Houston. The student, Kyle Coplen, launched what he calls the Armed Citizen Project, a nonprofit that is handing out "defensive shotguns" for free in certain neighborhoods of Houston and studying the effect on crime rates.
Error 396: Signature cannot be found.
Considering everybody who receives one would still first have to go through the background check, I am pretty anxious to hear the results of this.
