If you've lost someone to gun violence, you can text your loved one's name to xxx-xxx-xxxx and the Minneapolis Bench Project will put their name in a cast iron bullet placed on a bench in their memory.

Waste of guns that could be used to actually stop gun violence.

I wonder if Jerry Haaf, Melisa Schmidt, and a few others would be recognized if their names were to be submitted? I personally find the idea a little off putting but I guess some could find some sort of solace in it.

So just pretend that I have no idea of what's going on. WTF is the "Bench Project" and what are they doing?

I spent more time than it's worth going to their facepage and still don't know.
I will never apologize for being an American.
