As the pace of reconstruction in New Orleans slows, the crime rate in New Orleans has increased. Rather than focus on addressing the horrible conditions facing the region’s residents, right-wing pundit Glenn Beck offers an alternative solution: give them guns. “There’s not enough guns in New Orleans,” Beck claims. He said he envisions “an exchange program” where willing donors pay for guns for poor people in New Orleans. “You come on my program, say I’m poor, I am a law-abiding citizen, I don’t have a record, blah, blah, blah, I’ll match you with a donor that will buy a gun,” he said.
