Los Angeles area law enforcement officials donated 10,000 seized weapons, ranging from a small Derringer handgun to an AK-47 assault rifle, to be recycled into a product that will be used in the retrofitting of San Francisco’s Bay Bridge, the construction of San Diego’s new baseball stadium, and for Southern California freeway improvements.

The Los Angeles Times reports that at yesterday’s public recycling, L.A. County Sheriff Lee Baca, LAPD Assistant Chief Jim McDonnell and several police and city officials watched bulldozers carry five truckloads of weapons, including a grenade, to a 3,000-degree electric furnace.
