TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A Toledo city councilman is calling for a gun buyback.  
   
On Monday, mayoral candidate Joe McNamara unveiled more on his plan to fight the rising crime rate in the city. He is calling for his opponent, Mayor Mike Bell, to institute a gun buyback program.

"No one proposal or program is the solution to all of our problems, but we can't afford to do nothing. If this saves even one life it will be well worth it," said McNamara.

McNamara has also expressed disappointment in congress for failing to pass universal gun background checks.
