PASTOR TROY ORGANIZES ‘GUN BUY BACK’ TO KEEP ATLANTA STREETS BULLET-FREE: ‘THAT’S GANGSTA’
Written by Nate Matthews on October 14, 2021
D.S.G.B. (Down South Georgia Boyz) vet Pastor Troy is trying to give back to his community in South Fulton, Georgia by making the streets a little safer for its residents. According to The Atlanta Journal Constitution, 2020 was Atlanta’s deadliest year in decades with homicides surging by 58 percent.
So on Saturday (October 9), the 43-year-old rapper hosted a “Gun Buy Back” event in conjunction with the City of South Fulton Police Department and District 2 councilwoman Carmalitha Gumbs.
As explained on the flyer, anyone willing to turn over a rifle received $100, while handguns and broken weapons fetched $75 and $25, respectively. The event also had a “no photos, no IDs, no questions, first come, first serve” policy.
Similar actions were taken in St. Sabina
