A seized 1996 Ford Thunderbird in good condition is a prize Roswell police hope will reduce gun violence in the city.
Police are giving residents until Jan. 2 to turn in a working, unloaded gun to police headquarters to get a raffle ticket for the car, which was seized during a drug bust.
The drawing is Jan. 4.
Aside from reducing violence, police are also hoping to reduce the danger from New Year’s Eve celebrations, where many fire their guns into the air. Those shots can come back with enough force to injure or kill people.
A similar raffle six years ago didn’t have much success, but police are hoping for a better turnout this year.
What a bunch of BS.
