Pennsylvania Minister Takes Guns off the Street

An inner-city Allentown minister offers an unusual service to his parishoners: He takes their guns and turns them over to the police without disclosing their identities.  ''I don't want to be viewed as a servant of the police or a snitch,'' he said. ''I'm a sanctuary.''  He's also accepted drugs, which he destroys.  The neighborhood is plagued with crime and gun violence.  [Jack Chin]
