Peru’s Newest Playground Is Constructed From Melted-Down Firearms
Over 5,000 firearms seized from illegal markets and criminals were gathered and given to a steel company. And they were used to make something that children can enjoy.

Over 5,000 firearms seized from illegal markets and criminals were gathered and given to a steel company.
They were melted down and then fashioned into the playground equipment.
