Group Begins Arming Citizens With Shotguns In Houston

Members of a Houston-based gun-rights group began handing out shotguns and training single women living in one of the city's high-crime neighborhoods as it plans to roll out the program to other U.S. cities.

The women completed a shotgun training course offered by the Armed Citizen Project on Sunday, and took away a scattergun at no charge from the group. The women live in the Oak Forest neighborhood.

The organization, which plans to offer training classes in Dallas, San Antonio, and Tucson, Ariz., in the next few weeks, is working to expand its giveaways to 15 cities by the end of the year, including Chicago and New York, reports the Associated Press.

The group announced the initiative in March.

There will be many accidental discharges in this area. I hope the training focused on liability because most people killed at home are family by family. I would rather they issued stung guns its safer all around for everyone. You cannot bring a bullet back once fired but a stun is a survivable if fired by mistake.
