Former AZ Mayor Launches Program to Hand out Free Shotguns

Shaun McClusky wants to target high-crime neighborhoods

|

A former mayoral candidate in Tucson, Ariz., is drawing heated criticism from Democrats after he launched a program this week to hand out free shotguns in high-crime neighborhoods. 

Shaun McClusky, who kicked off the program Monday, financed it with initial donor commitments of $12,000. He told FoxNews.com that with those private donations alone, he can arm and train 36 people—and hopes to begin that process in 60 days.
