    background check, so it's not fair to suggest they will be handing them out to people who are prohibited from own guns.

           The Armed Citizens Project was created recently by a master's student at the University of Houston as a way to measure whether more guns result in less crime. The plan is to have diverse cities across the nation implement the program in specific neighborhoods and then track those neighborhoods to see if crime is reduced.
        So.... sad to say, every experiment needs negative controls, and with something as lethal as a gun, no one can ethically do blind controls.

        Any experiment involving human subjects has to meet high standards for informed consent. How subjects are recruited / selected also has to meet standards.

        We should be pushing back against the University of Houston and find out which department approved this project.

        BTW - congrats on posting from your phone!
