All of us watch closely this year as the legislators we vote into office attempt, once again, to do something about gun control. Much remains to be seen but hats off to one jeweler who decided to create pieces from seized weapons and ammunition:
The Caliber Collection is made up of metal from 250 guns and bullet casings seized by the Newark Police Department. The result is a series of pieces that embody the gun’s transformation from a destructive weapon to a powerful symbol of renewal. A portion of the proceeds from each sale is used to fund future Gun Buyback Amnesty programs in Newark. It is our hope that this will be a model that we can roll out in other cities across the nation.
