Richmond, VA drastically cut gun violence back in the 1990's with Project Exile. They did a deal with the Feds to have them charge felons in possession of a firearm under Federal Statutes. The offenders got 5 years per charge, consecutively, in a Federal facility (not near friends & family) at no charge to the locals.
Did an outstanding job for years until some activists noticed a disparate impact on "the community".
