Corrected to burst the alderman's political bubble.Alderman Van Johnson plans to speak about the effort, and says he will have more details on how a new community based gun buy back initiative has been created to get
illegalnon-functioning, crap, POS guns out of the hands of young people.
"Alderman Van Johnson helped spearhead with a local non-profit to buy back guns from young people across the community.Can someone pull some quotes. http://m.wtoc.com/wtoc/db_350145/contentdetail.htm?contentguid=0FaBpYGY
â€œGet the gun, call us weâ€™ll come and get it,â€ adds Johnson.This one seems to say the opposite for this sale at least. http://wsav.com/2016/11/15/city-of-...l-guns/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter
There is a new gun buy back initiative in Savannah headed by Savannah Youth City, itâ€™s a community effort to buy illegal guns.
Already the program has bought back five guns totaling more than $700 provided by groups like funeral homes and Alderman Van Johnson himself.
These guns will go to law enforcement, but they cannot destroy them according to state law.
But eventually, the program could lead to weapons being destroyed if that was handled by a private organization.
For now, Johnson asks the community to step up, provide funds and spaces to receive these weapons from those they may harm.
â€œWe are also asking that all houses of worship in our community offer to serves as safe places refuge for anyone wishing to turn in a gun,â€ says Johnson.
Because this is all private based, the alderman and Savannah Youth City have launched a GofundMe account that will be used to buy the guns. We have links to it on our Facebook page.
I asked them who is running the serial numbers for them. If I get a response I'll post it.
My question stands from a week ago - how do law abiding citizens buy illegal guns? Which begs the question - are they illegal or merely guns that the Alderman and others don't like?Yada yada yada .....private.....no government money......dont have to sell......private property can do with as we please......change 2012 law....not likely.....get illegal guns off street.
My question is this - how do you, as a private citizen, LEGALLY but illegal guns? Just wondering.
