MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -
Montgomery city leaders are planning what they consider an 'aggressive' approach to combat gun violence. This comes on the heels of 5 murders in the last 10 days in Montgomery.
It comes down to this. "We've got to get back to the sanctity of life," said Mayor Strange at a news conference in Montgomery City Hall.
Now the practical part.
Police wouldn't talk about details in terms of strategy but authorities have already doubled the size of the Directed Area Response Team or DART for short.
So far the surgical strikes in the community have taken 38 illegal weapons off the streets. WSFA 12 News has learned most of the weapons were handguns. The weapons will eventually be destroyed.
The other tool in combating gun violence relies largely on the public. City leaders are practically begging residents to call police if they know of someone who has an illegal weapon.
Montgomery Area Crimestoppers is offering $300.00 to anyone who turns in an ex-felon with an illegal gun, the tip must lead to an arrest before the money can be collected.
