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.
WESH-TV reports 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.
