    Good idea until the free shotgun doesn't come with a free safe and is subsequently stolen and potentially used in another crime....

    Hopefully they will go to the ones that can use them.It's good they will get some training if they aren't familiar with them.

    I'm a fan of this idea but Stoveman brings up a good point. They're arming people in mid-high crime areas, which to me, means higher chance of break-ins. Especially if this program is receiving attention. Remember, the thugs keep up with the news, too.

    A police report for the stolen weapon is all you're required to do in FL to absolve yourself of criminal liability. You may be sued by the victim's family if they're gold diggers, since people can sue you for emotional distress for giving them a funny look (whether or not they win depends on if you get an activist judge or not); but you won't be going to prison because some subhuman thug broke into your home and stole your shotgun, only to turn around and use it in the commission of a crime.

    If I won the lottery, this is the type of program I'd set up. Arm and train people left and right.

    Until then, donations to causes like this it is.

    You had to go there? Sounds like a Dianne Feinstein Sarah Brady fan. A evil black rifle Assault Weapons ban advocate. Why are anti self defense fanatics so fear driven? If that is a real concern simply provide all gun owner a $1200. rebate for every gun safe they buy.

    And what possible "civil" liability is involved for the owner of a stolen gun? If a firearm is in a locked house or locked car--it is legally secured, requiring forced entry to steal it.

    Local station has already made the usual gloom and doom report saying there will be blood in the streets and shoot outs over arguments plus the usual fear mongering.
    When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

    Im all for it. A lot of good people here live in bad areas and could use the help. The more houses that are armed the more criminals will rethink breaking in.
