Connecticut Governor Applauds Anti-Gun Sculpture Made From Shredded Firearms

Kalish said it took him two weeks to touch the first gun. Pathetic!

An anti-gun organization has placed 2,000 pounds of shredded firearm parts in the form of a massive sculpture depicting a handshake in the middle of a Connecticut park in an effort to draw awareness to gun violence in America.

The sculpture, according to its creator Michael Kalish told local reporters, “[Is] about breathing new life into something that was part of something so tragic.”

Kalish reportedly partnered up with Jessica Mindich, CEO of Jewelry for a Cause and founder of Raise the Caliber, to collect the firearms used for the project via gun buyback events.

From CT news Junkie:

Mindich was able to deliver 2,000 pounds of shredded illegal firearms to Kalish to help him create the sculpture. Kalish said they arrived by police escort at his studio.

There are parts from Uzis, Glocks, sniper rifles, AK-47s, and pistols incorporated into the sculpture. Mindich said she worried that she would “scar him [Kalish] with the angry energy and the pain coming from this metal.”
