  1. the government needs to do this considering the broke state of the nation

    * declare a gun amnesty and allow people to anonymously report those who they know have weapons

    *this would also include the pardon of those who turn their guns in willingly

    *non questioning of those who bring a gun which does not belong to them

    *ANYONE TURNING IN GUNS WILL BE REWARDED $1000

    JUST IMAGINE THE NUMBER OF BROKE PEOPLE WHO KNOW WHERE A GUN IS, WHAT THEY GOING TO DO
    EVEN ME
    I WOULD WANT THAT 1000 DOLLARS

    i think it would be a great investment towards the eradication of crime. please reach out to the necessary department with this info
