L.A. County Sheriff Destroys Confiscated Weapons
RANCHO CUCAMONGA, CA - JULY 15: A truck dumps some of 12,153 illegal guns and other weapons confiscated from criminals on the ground before they are carried by tractors to a furnace to be melted down and converted into steel rebar at the Tamco Steel mill on July 15, 2008 in Rancho Cucamonga, California. The reinforced steel bars made from the recycled guns and weapons during the 15th annual Project Isaiah, supervised by the Los Angeles County Sheriffs Department, will be used in freeway and highway construction projects. California law demands that confiscated weapons be destroyed. (Photo by David McNew/Getty Images)
