This is a grand escalation of the “feel good” propaganda by the anti-gun folks. Not only are they “doing something” by removing 700 non-functional firearms from society, now they are going to melt them into “Peace Bricks” (or is it piece bricks?) and put them around the city, spreading messages of peace. And to make sure that they leave no emotional string left un-tugged, they are involving the children in creating those messages . . .
While this will probably make those involved feel good, the rest of the community is wondering why they are wasting their time. I’m sure criminals and evil-doers will stop, reflect and change their ways after coming across one.
