It would be a shame to see this piece of military history melted down to become part of some sentimentalist hippie anti-gun propaganda.
Their actual plans are to melt this piece of history into scrap for a useless hippie art project.
When complete, the trash recovered filled the back end of a Parks Department Flat Bed Service truck. Content were mostly litter, cans and bottles but also included a few unique finds recovered from under the water. That which included half a wooden boat; a complete lawnmower; plus a Browning 30 caliber machine gun acquired adjacent to the fishing docks at the public park.
The police were dispatched to investigate the find and although the gun was no longer in working order, regulations required that the officer recover the weapon with claims that it would be included in the Peace Brick Program where confiscated guns are meltdown into bricks.
Yes, it appears that Seatac’s very important peace brick program—designed to mimic Seattle’s program, which “feature(s) quotes from Seattle children about gun violence and how it affects them,” is the best use this bunch of savages can think of for a piece of American military history that somehow ended up in the depths of the lake.
