Arm the Homeless Coalition.

…the Phoenix New Times ran a story announcing the formation of a new charity to benefit the homeless. There was just one catch. Instead of providing the homeless with food and shelter, this charity would provide them with guns and ammunition. It was named 'The Arm the Homeless Coalition.' The story received coverage from 60 Minutes II, the Associated Press, and numerous local radio stations before everyone realized it was a joke. The Phoenix New Times's joke was actually a reprise of a 1993 prank perpetrated by students at Ohio State University. -More-

Not a good idea for an organization, too much liability. But when you think about it, who needs to be armed more than someone who spends all their time outside, and has to sleep outside as well on occasion?

What's wrong with them? Don't they have a left and right arm and isn't that enough?

Well...the fact that many homeless are on the street because of mental issues is a start.

They are armed--with a homeless superfunk! :uhoh:

Chased one of them out of the hallway leading up to my office suite on Wednesday. Good thing it was a nice day, I could air out the hall.

Zero, the Left's dismantling of the mental health care system was deliberate. By putting more unstable individuals on the streets, you create potential for greater violence, violence that can only be "solved" by the government--for the children, of course. :rolleyes:

I am in favor of reintorducing wolves to Central Park, not just Yellowstone. That would take car of the homeless problem.

Bear, excellent idea! That would cut down on the number of animal rights activists as well.

A couple of packs let loose in the subway would be cause for abolition of the Sullivan Law. :D

yeah REALLY!. i have been homeless myself, but you know i always found a ssink and a stick of deoderant, no matter what. i dont get it with a lot of these people. you cna't get near them they smell so bad.

ps- arm them? URG! pass them all guns at 2 am , get them back by six, we'll have a lot less homeless! .

other than that, HA!. a homeless person without a ccw can almost never load their piece
haha.
sure , give em guns, just dont give em ammo.
