Thoughts from Our Detroit Shred

In a welding shop in Detroit, sits this amazing old car. It is a powerful reminder of the great legacy of Detroit auto manufacturing, a time when jobs were abundant, quality was king and there was pride in America.

Members of our team were there to witness the destruction of illegal guns for the Raise The Caliber™ initiative for Detroit.  Among the hundreds of guns, was a rifle with a bayonet attached to its muzzle. This kind of knife on a rifle is used to stab someone in close combat in wartime. However, the illegal guns that we were destroying were premise guns; guns removed from crime scenes and home raids by the Detroit Police.

The great dichotomy of that beautiful car and this violent weapon in the same place speaks volumes of just how deep the challenges are to raise the caliber of America’s poorest and most violent cities today.

We are so very proud to join forces with the Detroit Police Department and Rock Ventures, LLC to help their tireless and innovative efforts to bring Detroit back to greatness.
