Gun group plans shotgun giveaway in Central Florida

Posted:

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- A gun group is offering free shotguns to residents in a central Florida neighborhood.

Member of the Armed Citizen Project say arming residents is a way to stop crime in the area. They've recently been handing out fliers in the Sunshine Gardens neighborhood near Orlando.

Florida program director Ron Ritter says his group hopes to work with gun manufacturers and dealers to provide free or discounted guns to homeowners. He says the effort is "perfectly legal."

But resident Robin McLaughlin tells the television station she's not interested. She has lived in the neighborhood for 25 years and sees no reason to arm residents.
