The Gun Totem in Providence, Rhode Island

One wonders why we haven't seen this one on The Truth About Guns, whose founder lives in the Ocean State.

Standing in front of Providence’s Federal Courthouse in Rhode Island is an unusual monument constructed out of steel, concrete and 1000 used handguns. Dubbed the Gun Totem by its artist, Boris Bally, the imposing obelisk was constructed in 2001 with guns from a firearm buy-back program called Guns for Goods, founded by Dr. Michael P. Hirsch.


  1. I took a dump this morning that was more aesthetically pleasing than that obelisk.

  2. My guns will not appear on something like this.
