My kinda’ gun control

Oprah Magazine ( recently featured an article about a novel approach to gun control. The City of Newark, New Jersey joined forces with a jewelry designer to recycle the metals from guns collected during a paid gun amnesty program and create bracelets made from steel and brass gun parts. Each bracelet has the serial number of the gun inscribed on the edge. A portion of the profits produced from this program is returned to Newark to continue the program. The bracelets are available in three sizes for a custom fit and the one I bought fits perfectly. I currently have a steel one and plan to order a brass one as well.

In addition to bracelets, the organization has other jewelry and clothing.

The Caliber Foundation aims to offer support to victims and families of illegal gun violence.

When a community is affected by gun violence there are many unforeseen and unplanned for expenses, in the worst cases; funerals, and for those lucky enough to survive there are; medical bills, wheelchair ramps, and lost income. Churches and community organizations struggle to meet these needs, just as the Caliber Collectionâ„¢ creates opportunities for those who may never have walked the streets of Newark to participate in making the city a safer place, the Caliber Foundation connects anyone who donates with the organizations and people on the front lines of re-building lives one small act at a time.

Every day in this country lives are lost, and hearts are broken, the Caliber Foundation offers a helping hand when it is needed, acts of generosity on the parts of many, to help families and communities heal and work together to change their Caliber.

I encourage you to support this program.
