(KTVI) - East St. Louis announces another community crackdown on rising crime Friday and Saturday. It consists of the cities first gun buyback effort, something the department tried in 2008. What separates this effort from others is that East St. Louis pastor Kendall Granger is behind it.  In his world, failure is not an option.
