On Saturday, June 3rd gun owners can give new life to guns they no longer want. Former Pastor Jeff Wild is spending his retirement dismantling firearms and transforming them into garden tools. He joins us on A Public Affair to talk about this work. Also joining us is Dan Elsass, a member of the First United Method Church in Madison who is helping organize the Guns 2 Gardens event.
Unloaded guns can be surrendered on Saturday June 3rd from 8:30am to 12:30pm at the First United Method Church Parking Lot (203 Wisconsin Avenue, Madison). A second event will be held the following Saturday, June 10th from 9am to 12pm at Midvale Community Lutheran Church (4329 Tokay Blvd., Madison)
More information about the FUMC event can be found here. The flyer for both dates can be found here.
