Life Cycle Of Uselessness

It was over a year ago that we carried the story of the Pillsbury Foundation’s buyback fiasco.   Which doesn’t narrow it down much; while the buybacks last year in Minneapolis were very poorly organized, their effect on crime was the same as any other buyback program.


But this buyback was different in one way; unlike other buybacks that just sell guns for scrap (allowing criminals to dispose of crime guns without leaving a paper trail), the guns gathered were doing to be donated to “artists” to do “art” that was supposed to “raise awareness” about “gun violence”.

A friend of the blog writes:

more “gun art” that will never be displayed on anyone’s wall

The Pillsbury folks paid for this apparently

The only thing really on display (at least in the objects pictured) is the paucity of imagination in these “artists”

Look at the things that have created great art over the centuries:  Longing, anger, the search for justice, the search for God, the quest for beauty – lots of motivations.

“Spoiled, subsidized, entitled, Urban Progressive Privilege-sotted pseudo-“artists” barking like dogs on their political masters’ command” isn’t one of them.

  1. Worth noting is that the DEA is joining in on the fun by trying to get drug buybacks/give-backs going. As if people who understand the danger of undedicated drugs aren’t already taking steps to deal with it, and as if people who don’t care will suddenly start caring.

  2. Did you see the one called “Break Action”?

    A hammer style semi-auto pistol.

  4. I am submitting a proposal to The Pillsbury Foundation to build firearms from the pulp of rejected grant requests.

  5. “Artist and organizer Nikki McComb sifted through the boxes of firearms pieces and took out all the jagged shards before distributing them for artists to use in their pieces.”

    Because these “artists” cannot even be trusted with sharp objects.
