    I was surfing the web and came across this information, I found interesting.

    Project Ceasefire

    Project Ceasefire, launched in October 1999, is a cooperative initiative by federal and
    local law enforcement and the Kansas City Crime Commission that targets persons who
    unlawfully use or possess firearms for federal prosecution.

    Project Ceasefire has resulted in
    federal charges against 400 defendants, and convictions against 339 of those defendants,
    including 316 who pleaded guilty and 23 who were convicted at trial. A total of 288 of the 339
    convicted defendants have been sentenced, and 49 currently await sentencing hearings.


    This C&P came from the link below

    If this program were followed to the tee by ALL agencies, especially those in large cities like NYC, DC, LA, to cite a couple of the worst offenders of not only non-enforcement but non-trial if one is arrested, it would make it clear to all that taking these offenders off the street goes a long way toward helping the overall crime picture.

    Richmond, Virginia is another city where this program has almost been a miracle worker on the city's crime rate, along with the growing factor of citizens being armed.

    Amazing. Actually call to task criminals and take them off the streets? And this reduces crime? Whoda thunk it.
