Cleveland police destroy 350 guns

CLEVELAND

Hundreds of firearms surrendered to Cleveland police during a gun buy-back program won’t ever be used again as they have been melted at a steel plant.

The Northeast Ohio Media Group reports more than 350 firearms were dumped into a furnace with about 200 tons of molten iron Wednesday at the ArcelorMittal plant in Cleveland.

Cleveland police collected the guns in June in exchange for gift cards and other incentives. The firearms turned in to police included antique revolvers and sawed-off shotguns.

Police chief Michael McGrath says the steel plant has melted more than 8,000 guns in the last seven years.
