"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

I'm of two minds about this - clearly folks in the projects are in a lot more danger than most of the rest of us - but I'm not sure if allowing welfare funds to be used to purchase firearms is a really good idea.

Problem easily solved. Do away with "the projects" and with the welfare funds.

The reality of the situation is that more than a few receiving welfare may already have police records which would prevent them from legally acquiring firearms in the first place. This is certainly so for black males, who have involvement with the criminal justice system in numbers approaching 35-40% (or more in some areas).
