The local “journalists” are lauding the turnout of a Trenton gun buy back program. The program was necessary . . . for the children.

The Trenton gun buyback surpassed one in Camden in December that netted more than 1,100 weapons. Mercer County residents received $25 to $250 for each firearm depending on type, condition and legality.

These thugs took the man to the edge, but the chef’s sharp thinking helped him get a handle on the situation, and probably saved lives.
