Group Offers Free Shotguns

The Armed Citizen Project of Florida, an offshoot of a Texas group that promotes crime deterrence by offering free shotguns and ammunition, has focused on a neighborhood in Orlando and is passing out fliers, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

The flier says the guns are provided by a local firearms retailer and only after a background check.

One resident of the targeted neighborhood, which is not known as a high-crime area, said she's never felt unsafe there. She added, "I just feel like they're preying on people's fears."
