Guns for Art, Not Violence!!

America has a serious gun problem. It’s sickening. And scary. Why do these terrible shootings keep happening over and over again? I’m so sad for the all of the families who have lost their loved ones to gun violence. I don’t even want to imagine how it would feel if it happened to mine. Gun laws need to change, and the crazy people who try and protect them should share responsibility for the deaths of so many innocent victims. What is wrong with you, America??! There’s so much terrorism inside your very own walls.

I’m dedicating this Art Smoothie blog post to guns being used for art as opposed to violence. The act alone of putting guns in a different context, and suggesting that they don’t just have to be shooting machines, acknowledges that guns do not have to = violence.

On the reverse side, another interesting concept is to make guns from other, non-harmful materials..

5) Bone Art:

6) Crocheted Guns:

7) Seed Guns:

8) Bacon Gun:

9) Edible Guns Made of Ice:

What America needs to do, is recycle the old guns for art, and make new ones that are artistic, creative, interactive, and bring people together as opposed to tear them apart.
