D&C Pizza

Free pizza is an extremely persuasive argument.

One Indianapolis pizzeria is trying to slow the rate of gun violence one free pizza at a time. D&C Pizza — located on the East Side, one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in Indianapolis — is offering its version of a gun buyback program. If you bring in your gun, you can get one extra-large pizza pie for free.

"You know, I said, 'Maybe I could have helped them. Maybe I could have gotten that gun off the street,'" owner Donald Dancy told The Indy Channel. “Every one of these crimes, mainly with these kids, I said, 'If I could reach them with a pizza, I could save a life.’ I've got that in my heart, in my mind, that I could do it."

Dancy explained his policy, stating anyone can bring in a gun in exchange for a free pizza, no questions asked. Dancy will then hand the gun over to police. The Indianapolis police department and the Marion County sheriff’s department have confirmed they’re working with Dancy to make sure what he’s doing is legal.

Dancy hopes his gesture will inspire other local businesses to do the same.
