Gun proponents launch free shotgun program for crime-ridden neighborhoods in Arizona, Texas

A campaign promising free shotguns for people to protect themselves in Tucson's most troubled neighborhoods has divided some residents in a community still reeling from the deadly shooting rampage that killed six people in 2011.

Shaun McClusky says guns are the solution to Tucson's crime problem, and he's working with The Armed Citizen Project to give shotguns to single women and homeowners.

Donors have committed about $12,000 to the Arizona effort. It costs about $400 for each participant to receive a shotgun and weapons training.

The Armed Citizen Project based in Texas seeks to arm neighborhoods in 15 cities by the end of the year.

The group says that at least 13 single women in Houston have already received shotguns.
