NEW YORK — A startup company wants to turn gun violence prevention into something beautiful.
Usually when illegal guns are seized by the police they are catalogued and then destroyed, but Liberty United has partnered with three cities with high rates of gun violence to take the guns and bullets and turn them into jewelry. It is currently working with law enforcement agencies in Philadelphia, Newburgh, N.Y. and Syracuse, N.Y.
“Every piece is made out of either a gun or a bullet that we’ve taken out of circulation and that the serial number of one of the guns that we have destroyed will be on the piece," said founder Peter Thum. "Profit from every piece goes back to fund programs to reduce gun violence here in the United States."
Jewelry made from the guns and bullets include rings, bracelet cuffs and necklaces. People who purchase one of the items online can choose which of the three participating cities they would like to receive the charitable donation.
