Dallas Communities Eye Free Guns For Protection Via Armed Citizen Project

04.02.13 01:05 PM

Last week, we told you about the expansion into Tucson, Ariz., of the Armed Citizen Project (ACP), a private, Houston-based gun distribution and training program for residents living in high-crime areas.

Now the program is set to launch in North Texas, where receptive residents in and around Dallas can qualify to receive a free shotgun for personal protection after they’ve completed a safety course and demonstrated they’ve lived at the same address for at least a year.

In addition to providing a free shotgun for qualifying citizens, ACP also hopes to keep track of crime statistics in areas where the free guns have been in use — and then use those numbers to compare crime in gun-rich areas with crime in areas where gun-control restrictions prevail.

ACP has gained in popularity as news of its mission has gotten out, and the organization’s website states the free gun program is establishing a footprint in other cities — ones where the outcomes could make for some very interesting comparative studies. In addition to Houston, Tucson, Dallas and Indianapolis, ACP is also working to deploy in Detroit, New York and — perhaps most interestingly — Chicago.
