"Now they have invited folks around the country to donate their weapons. From each semi-automatic, they can make several garden tools – which will actually be fully functional and ready for use (not just to hang on the wall). They promised us a trowel and shovel made from the AK 47 we transformed today, which we can’t wait to use in the Potter Street gardens.
The AK47 we converted was fully functional and able to shoot or kill, and the owner wanted to end the patterns of gun violence haunting our country… so he donated it. We are excited to see this gun turned into farm tools, and are we can’t wait for many more weapon-conversions in the days to come. Let’s beat the tools of death into tools of life.”
“My people will beat their swords into plows… and study war no more.” –Isaiah 2
