Nas and R&B group members Jagged Edge have signed on to promote antigun PSA's for the state of Connecticut, as part of the Bush Administration's Project Safe Neighborhoods.
The project aims at getting guns off the streets of neighborhoods plagued by violence. During the first year, there was a 30 percent increase in federal firearm indictments in Connecticut alone, according to the Kevin O'Conner, the state's U.S. attorney.
Transit buses will carry antigun messages throughout the state's major cities. People are also being asked to dial 211, a hotline designed to answer various questions about guns.
Officials in New Haven, Bridgeport, Stamford and Hartford said they were pleased with the results of the program last year and O'Conner said that $650,000 has been earmarked to take the message outside of the four cities.
"We're working together like we never have been before," O'Connor said at a press conference. "The collaboration is unprecedented, and the resources are unprecedented."
