3 The Jacksonville Sheriff's office is planning an event to get illegal guns off the street... Channel 4's scott johnson looks at these gun buyback programs that some say stop gun crimes while others say they just don't work. 00-10 :17- :35 :44- :48if you have a gun and simply want to get rid of it... on june 29th at the elks lodge on west duval street downtown you can sell it to cops... and channel 4 crime analyst ken jefferson says this can feasibly cut down on crime if the right gun is turned in.KEN JEFFERSON 6:03:31 - the good part about gun buyback is you are taking some guns off the streets that could get into wrong hands. I totally agree with right to bear arms... but to have these gun buyback programs is you have some people giving up that right for fear that it may get into wrong hands. but not everyone thinks this program does any good. Eric friday is lead counsel for a gun rights group called florida carry.ERIC FRIDAY/FLORIDA CARRY 5:58:35 - They are a monumental waste of public resources and private resources.Friday says the odds of police actually buying back a gun that would be used in a crime is miniscule.6:00:09 - the real problem is theres' no result achieved. If the stated goal of these buybacks is it saves one life. The statistics say the numbers you have to buy to save one life ... the math doesn't work out.this program is similar but not the same as the gun bounty program... where you can get $1000 if you report a stolen gun to police and an arrest is made... jefferson says while some may question the buy back program the bounty program is very important to stopping crime.KJ 6:05:14 - the gun bounty is a very valuable tool. Because most of the people that is given sheriff's office information about guns shouldn't have them themselves. So they're getting valuable information leading to arrest. 3 3 3 trunk of your car.
