Does anyone believe gang members and criminals are going to sell their guns to the NAACP? This sad display just furthers the idiotic notion that guns are the problem and ignores the real reasons for gun violence:
FOX ATLANTA – The Atlanta branch the NAACP announced they are starting a program to buy back guns on Monday.
Officials with the group say Project Rescue Atlanta is a community based program designed to get guns off the streets of Atlanta, and they are inviting other organizations to join the program.
NAACP president Dr. R. l. White was surrounded by members of law enforcement, including Fulton County Sheriff Ted Jackson when he made the announcement.
White says the program is about raising awareness in the community on the issue of gun violence, but they also want to get guns out of the wrong hands. He pointed to the tragic mass shooting in at a Mother’s Day parade in New Orleans on Sunday as a reason for the community to do something about it.
