Gun Buyback Program

Let’s do our part to minimize gun deaths…

Savannah Community and businesses we need your support to get this community initiative off ground and get more guns off the streets. Please consider donating anything you can to give our youth hope and rid our streets of illegal firearms and dispose of them properly. Without you, this initiative fails!

All in a day’s work…

Someone won’t get murdered.
Someone won’t get robbed.
Someone’s small child won’t accidentally get shot.
Someone won’t commit suicide.

“We’re not against the Second Amendment. We believe in it. However, it’s those who have illegal guns and those who otherwise should not have them. Working with Beverlee Trotter and Savannah Youth City, we’re able to engage them and say ‘there’s a better life, but we need to get the gun.’

So far we’ve done really well…We had to do something out of the box. We had to do something extraordinary. And this was an opportunity for us to do that.” –Alderman Van Johnson

How the Gun Buyback Initiative Works:

  1. Gun is dropped off or picked up.
  2. We don’t ask any questions. We don’t ask for ID. And we don’t check the guns.
  3. We disassemble and destroy the guns.

How You Can Help:

  1. Donate a gun.
  2. Tell a friend or share this on your social media pages.
  3. Make a donation* and save a life: www.GoFundMe.com/savannahyouthcity

Scott Stanton, aka Panhandle Slim, served a call to action: Young people, throw flower or tree seeds wherever there’s empty space, then monitor that space and see what grows…Life.
