Houston nonprofit Armed Citizen Project is giving away guns -- and training -- to area women and residents of high-crime neighborhoods.

"While many cities have tried gun buybacks and other tactics in the ongoing national debate on gun control, the nonprofit and its supporters say gun giveaways to responsible owners are actually a better way to deter crime. The organization, which plans to offer training classes in Dallas, San Antonio, and Tucson, Ariz., in the next few weeks, is working to expand its giveaways to 15 cities by the end of the year, including Chicago and New York." -- Juan A. Lozano, Associated Press
