TI Sets Up Coalition To Remove Guns From Urban Communities

Author: AkooEditor  //  Category: TI News


Approaching jail time, TI is really pumping up his good side and we couldn’t be happier to tell you that the King of the South and his K.I.N.G. Foundation have formed a coalition with the Political Swagger Foundation and C.H.A.N.G.E. Initiative to remove guns from urban communities.

Holla out to everyone in Houston, as of March 14, TI will host the “Resposibility Is a Lifestyle: Give Back Your Gun Day” event.  This event will be held at the Good Hope Missionary Baptist Church.  Any person with an unregistered weapon will be able to turn in the firearm without fear of questioning, fines or arrest that whole day.

This outreach program is held due to a recent sociological study by Northeastern University, where the result showed that from 2002 to 2007, the murder rate for juvenile African-American males was increased by a significant 31 percent.  Among these murders, there was also an increase of 41 percent in black male perpetrators.  And it’s only appropriate that this event is held in Houston because according to the Houston Chronicle, the city of Houston has reported a whopping 139 percent in the amount of young African-Americans suspected in gun muders.

TI who will be going to prison later this month expresses his reason on hosting the event to

“Instead of walking with guns, I now have to walk with God.”

So people, if you need to attend The Give Back Your Gun Day event, it begins this Saturday, March 14, 2009, at 11 am.   Just come down to the Missionary Baptist Church at 3015 North MacGregor Way in Houston.
