Free shotguns…right, who thinks that is a good idea

September 27, 2013

The Armed Citizen Project of Florida has been dropping leaflets on doorsteps in the Sunshine Gardens community near Orlando, Fla., offering to “arm volunteer households,” for free. Apparently a firearms retailer has agreed to gives the shotguns and ammunition and transfer ownership once the homeowner passes a background check.

You can make this stuff up. Read more.

    Hey, Sad State, guess what! Blind people can purchase cars too! Do you have something against the handicapped? Don’t you think they have the same rights as you?

    I don’t think Fl has begun allowing blind citizens to obtain gun permits, but Iowa has.

    If all it takes is to be a homeowner & to pass a background check then I guess they’d give a gun to a blind homeowner who didn’t have any criminal offenses.

    Rick, I don’t understand your point.

    What’s wrong with offering a free shotgun to a person legally eligible to possess a shotgun, as recommended by our Vice President???

    Let’s think about this for a minute. Your initial concern when you hear something like this is that criminals might get their hands on a gun. Well, they already do and they don’t need a background check. So, that leaves law-abiding citizens who aren’t getting a gun who want one most likely because they can’t afford it. The only other concern I could foresee someone having about this is that background checks don’t work. So, maybe instead of creating ineffective barriers and mass hysteria over gun rights, which drive up demand and cost, why not improve on gun safety and education?
