RANCHO CUCAMONGA, CA – JULY 12: Steel workers look over a pile of more than 4,300 confiscated illegal weapons about to be melted down during the 14th Annual Gun Destruction program, overseen by Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca, at the TAMCO steel mill on July 12, 2007 in Rancho Cucamonga, California. The weapons were confiscated throughout Los Angeles County over the past year and must by law be destroyed. The guns make ideal scrap metal for making concrete reinforcing bars, or rebar, because of their typically high nickel and chrome content and will ultimately be used in the construction of California freeways.

    It should be a felony to destroy perfectly good guns! How sickening and stupid.
