Mayor Finizio was right on the money with his gun buy-back program. Who are we to assume that, when it comes to gun violence, there is a difference between a middle-aged unassuming person compared to a young person with a look of potential trouble?

Countless times accidents have occurred because of someone getting a hold of a gun a father, uncle or mom has for protection. It's not unimaginable to think that the gun buy back has in some way altered a potential tragedy. Who cares where the gun came from.
