How 'bout this one (same AP article):
http://www.washingtonpost.com/nation...9de_story.html

http://thinkprogress.org/justice/201...-gun-giveaway/

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2013/03/29...ghborhoods-in/

One of those should work. Should also be interesting to see what the Think Progress folk are saying about it

Think progress mentioned nothing of the training that's involved with the program. But of course fox did

I gotta think one or three criminals will get a slight bit nervous when they hear of this.

There is a project like that here in Houston. Started last year by a guy at U of H downtown.
They will train living in high crime areas to shoot the shot gun and then give it to them with a box of ammo.
It is called the armed citizen project.

I think that program is an excellent idea. Gets people otherwise wouldn't afford firearms to be able to protect themselves and they get training. Love how the only ones *****ing are liberals.

Same project, same person, transplanted.
