Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed and faith leaders are joining the NAACP in a gun buyback initiative.
“We decided to take action. More than just pray for it and go to sleep," said Rev. R.L. White, Jr., president of the Atlanta chapter of the NAACP.
At a Monday press conference at Atlanta City Hall, Brown condemned what he called America’s culture of violence and called for fewer guns on the streets.
“When we first initiated this buyback effort, it was out of necessity, not politics,” said Brown.
