In today’s “This Won’t End Well” news, an Ex-Tucson, Arizona mayoral hopeful thinks it’s a pretty good idea to give FREE guns to citizens in high crime areas. Shaun McClusky is raising money to purchase shotguns and provide training for anyone who lives in a mid- to high-crime neighborhood and can pass a background check. McClusky said the shotguns will be single-break-action guns that can hold only one shell and each gun will cost $205, which includes a box of ammunition. With the training and background checks included, McClusky estimates it will cost about $350 to $400 per person.
“We need to take back our city, and it needs to come back to the citizens and not the criminals,” [Shaun] McClusky said. “Right now, the criminal element is winning.”
Over the next couple of weeks, McClusky and others will begin spreading leaflets and posting fliers in Midvale Park, Pueblo Gardens and a yet-to-be-determined midtown neighborhood to induce residents to sign up for the program.
McClusky feels that guns don’t kill people. He compared that notion to spoons making people fat.
“Saying guns are responsible for killing people is like saying spoons are responsible for making people fat,” McClusky said. “If someone wants to bring me the publicity for free and sue me, bring it on.”
The Tucson initiative’s website claimed that budget cuts have negatively impacted the Tucson Police Department’s ability to respond to emergencies, suggesting that residents take self-protection into their own hands.
Protecting your family and your property is a personal right, the way you do it is up to you as the individual. Many choose to let the police do it for them but in this current environment that is becoming less and less realistic each day. With that being said myself and several others in Tucson have decided to join Kyle and the Armed Citizen Project and begin to identify areas in Tucson that can benefit from this program.
Free guns. There you have it folks.
