Citizen group wants to make their city safer. Answer: give away free shotguns!

A non-profit group plans to hand out free shotguns to residents of Tucson, Arizona in an effort to show that more guns mean less crime.
Tucson rocketed to the forefront of the nation's gun-ownership debate on January 8, 2011, when college dropout Jared Loughner opened fire at a political meet-and-greet with former congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. Six people died and 13 were injured, including Giffords who was shot in the head with Loughner's legally-obtained Glock handgun. She later resigned from the House of Representatives to focus on her recovery.

The effort is locally supported by Black Weapons Armory, a gun shop that specializes in assault-style weapons. The shop will provide background checks and shotguns, said owner Tommy Rompel.

It will be a few weeks before the shop can get guns to residents, because a wave of "panic buying" followed the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings in Connecticut, which left 26 people dead, including 20 children.

Virtually every type of weapon the shop sells - handguns, shotguns and assault-style weapons - is on back order, Rompel said.

"After the Sandy Hook shooting, the entire nation basically went crazy buying guns," he said.

If you live in Tucson, PLEASE encourage every black man you know to dress up in Black Panther garb and get in line - also hand out Ché outfits for the latinos.

Hey did somebody say "patrol the neighborhood with a gun?" I'm in! (well as soon as I get out...)

A hoodie will be sufficient.

The whole idea is from goofball former mayoral candidate Shaun McClusky. The article makes it sound like the idea is being pushed by a "citizen's group" but that isn't so.

I sure wouldn't mind getting a free shotgun but I don't live in a high-crime area.

How many shotguns could I get? Am I allowed to turn them in at a gun buyback?
