The next time you’re stuck in traffic on an LA freeway, think for a moment about what’s underneath you. That concrete you’re not rolling on could be supported by the remnants of confiscated and turned-in boomsticks. “Nearly 5,000 handguns, rifles and other weapons were destroyed Wednesday as part of the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department’s 21st annual Gun Melt event, authorities said…Interim Los Angeles County Sheriff John Scott and other law enforcement officials were on hand for the annual event at the Gerdau Steel Mill in Rancho Cucamonga, which donates its furnace, equipment and personnel to convert the weapons into steel rebar to be used in construction of freeways and bridges.” There’s apparently no truth to the rumor that . . .
California’s senior senator was on hand for the actual melting process. If she had attended that little gun barbecue, no doubt she’d have danced around the molten firearms like a wild Injun. The flames could be seen for miles. Are you catching our drift? Or are we being too obtuse?
