The goal of the "2150 initiative" is to keep guns out of the hands of felons and other people who are prohibited from having them, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Oklahoma.

2150 was Sgt. Johnson's badge number. U.S. Attorney Trent Shores, Tulsa Police Department and Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum announced more about the initiative on Tuesday.
