NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
In early 1999, the Northern District of Alabama established "Project Isolating the Criminal Element" ("Project I.C.E.") to address the high level of gun homicides in the City of Birmingham. Project I.C.E. includes vigorous prosecution of substantially all federal firearms violations, identified through a partnership with the Birmingham Police Department, ATF and the Jefferson County District Attorney's Office. Project I.C.E. also provides for intensive training of local law enforcement officers on federal and state firearms laws and procedures. A community outreach component of Project I.C.E. has included television, radio and billboard advertisements, as well as bumper stickers and yard signs. See Figure 7 of the National Strategy. Project I.C.E. will expand to cover the entire district, with an appropriate balance between federal and state prosecutions. A coordinated referral mechanism, including a designated prosecutor in the local District Attorney's Office who will participate in the referrals, and may be appointed as a Special Assistant U.S. Attorney to try cases in federal court, will be critical to this expansion. The cities of Birmingham, Gadsden, Huntsville, Talladega, and Tuscaloosa within the Northern District of Alabama have entered into agreements with the ATF to enforce a comprehensive crime gun tracing program under ATF's Youth Crime Gun Interdiction Initiative (YCGII). Project I.C.E. is complemented by Operation Safe Home, a cooperative federal, state and local initiative which targets violent crime in public housing complexes.

This is awesome!!
No conviction needed.
Step 1. buy cheap pistol, many out there for $100 new.
step 2. call police and get gun picked up.
Step 3. get your thousand dollars.
Step 4. Go buy a Sig Sauer and take the wife out for a 400 dollar dinner and movie!!!
No conviction, all he wants to do is get the illegal gun off the street, so I guess any gun is illegal in that city?
Funny how guns could be illegal ANYWHERE in the US...edit on 9-1-2012 by g146541 because: spellar broken

How would your neighbor know? It sets a very dangerous precedent. Now when the cops say they are there because they got a call.... it could be true. We have gone from a nation of laws in to a grey area where its a judgment call. History has shown that allowing those with guns to rule over those with out only leads to more suffering.
Along with millions of Kindles, Angry Birds and gift cards, Santa left a record number of guns under Americans' Christmas trees, especially in Kentucky, according to FBI statistics on background checks. In the six days before Christmas, gun dealers submitted nearly half-a-million names for checks on criminal records and mental health issues, with 20% coming Dec. 23, according to news reports. That was the second-busiest gun-buying day in history, topped only by firearm purchases on Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving,
