This is almost too ridiculous to be true. The Arizona Teapublican party is spending $12,000 to give out shotguns in high crime areas in the Tuscon area primarily. They think it'll help "reduce" crime rates lol.
They are complaining about high crime rates... but Tuscon has tried to raise taxes to help fund police and fire fighting services. The problem is the tea party has opposed all those attempts to help increase revenues to pay for vital services. Now they think handing out shotguns can help curb crime... lol.
This is idiocy in its finest.
