  • Kramer has the authority to grant amnesty if it’s a murder weapon? If a convicted felon brings in a gun
    For a visa gift card, he better get arrested! Hey Kramer, what you’re doing is called selective law enforcement.
    Your business is prosecuting bad guys, not letting them
    Go. You think this is going to stop black on black
    Crime? “ a visa gift card will be given to each Neighbor that participated in the event”… so neighbor can
    Also mean bad guy convicted felon with a gun that
    You let go..is the letting go of the criminal in the name
    Of equity? I want to know how this is going to stop burglars from stealing guns and black youths from
    Doing drive by shootings…I’m all ears…these toys for
    Guns and gun buys haven’t stopped any crime!
    Show us the proof!

    • And we also have not heard anything from the last one on how many were stolen and whether they had been returned to their rightful owners.
