Will arming citizens curb crime?

Posted: Updated:

Many cities are experimenting with gun-buyback programs to get weapons off the street and reduce crime, but a group calling itself the "Armed Citizen Project" is taking the opposite approach, according to a report on Foxnews.com.

The report says the group wants to help people in high crime areas get guns. The founder just trained a group of 10 women and gave them shotguns.

"As criminals have more reason to fear the citizenry, crime begins to drop as a result," said Kyle Coplen, the founder, to FoxNews.com.
