Armed Citizen Project

Postby Floridaclipper » Fri Mar 29, 2013 7:49 am

Just ran across this. Arm the single women and single homeowners living in crime-ridden neighborhoods with shotguns, teach them how to use them, and post signs in the neighborhood that the neighborhood is armed to reduce crime. One city in AZ is giving away free shotguns. Thoughts? I am not sure I like the signs telling people the neighborhood is part of the program. Wouldn't that open them up to being targeted when no one is home? A good gun safe to keep it secure is expensive. You've got to love the comment by the neighborhood president putting this in the catagory of vigilantism and suggesting that money that isn't hers be used to pay their mortage or for food.

I like it. Of course, in my neighborhood it wouldn't be necessary, as the majority of the neighborhood is already armed...lots of current/former military/LEO folks. In fact that is the majority of the "makeup" of the neighborhood. Pretty much goes for the whole town, in fact. That's what happens when you live in a "military town".

So they are giving weapons to people without the motivation to do it for themselves? Really how much does a used shotgun cost and how many Americans could not save up and buy one if they really wanted to own a gun? In six months they will all be sold, used in a crime, or hocked. Swamp

This is an interesting idea... I will be curious to see how it turns out. I read a similar report in a police blog.

I saw a post on the same topic yesterday on a different forum. In always trying to think positive verses negative I think it is a welcoming project and deserves support both financially and spiritually as well, especially for those who believe in the 2ndd AmEnDMeNT. They are training those individuals who receive their weapons and that too should be applauded.

We are not responsible for the actions on what happens after they receive their weapons in terms of whether they will be on the street or not. The recipients to have to pass a background check and again this is a positive aspect of the program as well to a certain extent as it shows that the project it trying to ensure that legal guns are going into "Legal" homes.

Hoping for the best from them and I will be keeping any eye on their progress.
