A gun group is offering free shotguns to residents in an Orlando neighborhood.
Members of the Armed Citizen Project said arming residents is a way to stop crime in the area. The group said it has been handing out fliers in the Sunshine Gardens neighborhood.
According to reports, Florida program director Ron Ritter said his group hopes to work with gun manufacturers and dealers to provide free or discounted guns to homeowners. He said the effort is "perfectly legal."
However, resident Robin McLaughlin said she's not interested. McLaughlin said she has lived in the neighborhood for 25 years and sees no reason to arm residents.
