Yesterday Michael Warren killed his gun.
The local attorney donated his Bulgarian-made AK-47 to the "Guns-to-Garden Tools" project. And according to the press release, the gun was chopped to bits, to be re-made in the spirit of Isaiah 2:4: "They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore."
Rawtools, the Pikes Peak Justice & Peace Commission, and Bike Clinic organized and hosted the event.
"I want the weapon destroyed," Warren stated in the release. "I don't want anyone to ever have the opportunity to use it again."
