YouTube Tuesday: Many sons and a lot of guns

VBS.tv visits the largest illegal gun market in the world in Darra, Pakistan in the Khyber Pass between Pakistan and Afghanistan.

This is a fascinating look into the the culture of gun violence in this area of the world. According to the reporting, scrap metal from the many wars and invasions into Afghanistan is recycled into firearms. Deaf men and children work in stone hovels making 1,000 guns a day by hand. For the past 70 years.

That's a lot of guns.

  1. It's really cool to see Vacation Bible School branching into multimedia. Much more useful than those making all those wallets and key fobs.


Your turn to riff...
