I can understand why people trade-in unloved and/or broken-*ss guns for cash money and gift cards. But a bible? Doesn’t anyone who want one have one? Anyway that’s what went down yesterday in Valdosta, GA . . .
The exchange will be hosted by Pastor William Morgan of Morning Star Baptist Church in partnership with the Valdosta Police Department.
Guns of all types may be handed over to Morgan and Morning Star volunteers, and in return, people will receive Bibles.
He said the guns that will be released to him are ones that are illegal, have no serial numbers or may not be registered with the state of Georgia.
Once received, the weapons will immediately be given to the VPD and entered into property evidence before being disposed, VPD Chief Brian Childress said.
If it’s discovered the gun is stolen, police will return the weapon to its rightful owner, Childress said.
Morgan said it is important to reassure that law enforcement will not be on the premises, and no one will be charged for the exchange.
“There will be no surveillance of law enforcement at all,” he said. “They will not be on the premises. They will not be patrolling. There will be no cameras. We will not take their names. We will give them a receipt for the ammunition.”
