While gun nuts sink a little deeper into madness with each passing day, Seattle is turning guns into bricks.
The Seattle Police Department collected more than 700 guns during a buyback in January, and now city officials have a plan for what to do with them.
Mayor Mike McGinn is expected to announce Tuesday that they’ll be melted into bricks carrying messages of peace, and the bricks will be placed around the city.
The buyback program was announced a month after last December’s elementary school massacre in Newtown, Conn., by city leaders sick of hearing about gun violence.
Private sponsors including Amazon.com contributed tens of thousands of dollars so that people could anonymously turn in their weapons for shopping cards worth up to $200.
Some 716 guns were turned in. With support from the charitable foundation of famed glass artist Dale Chihuly, they’ll be turned into bricks.
One thing about the gun crazies, they’re well organized and quick to mobilize. Check out the comments section of the story above to see what I mean. The anti-gun law kooks are in mad frenzy mode regurgitating the crap they’ve heard on Fox and hate radio from NRA types.
“Only from the minds of Seattle’s leadership can you get an idea to turn a perfectly good weapon into a chunk of hippie scrap…”
“Only liberals, who want gov’t to control us, believe that gun laws work. [...] As far as ‘Peace Bricks’, MORE liberal garbage. Our children need to be raised to be better people.”
After reading what these people have to say, I can only say – long live the Peace Brick!
