NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) – Metro Nashville Police are taking their fight against violent crime to local churches, enlisting their help to retrieve unwanted or stolen guns. Starting Tuesday, eight churches around Nashville will have lockboxes where guns can be turned in, no questions asked.
The program, launched by MNPD’s Office of Alternative Policing Strategies, is intended to get potentially dangerous weapons off the streets and out of unsafe hands.
Last year, more than 1,300 guns were stolen from cars within Davidson County, MNPD reports.
I can put a huge collection box in front of my house. Any gun that is found to be stolen, gets returned to the owners. Guns that are not stolen, I get to keep as form of payment.
Do you think they will go for it? Nah.
At least they are not wasting taxpayer’s money on dumb and useless “gun buy backs.”
