Not only is Newark, New Jersey Mayor Cory Booker something like a super man who goes into burning buildings to save stranded families, but turns out the guy is pretty darn stylish as well. He may be fresh off a challenge to live on food stamps for a week, but that isn’t stopping him from seeking new ways to make changes.

In an effort to keep guns off the streets of Newark with the city’s new gun buy-back program, Booker started up the Caliber Collection, an innovative attempt at keeping guns out of the hands of the wrong people, and on the wrists of the right ones.

Booker appeared on the “The Rachel Maddow Show” and gave the details about his new initiative “The Caliber Collection” that has raised $20,000 for gun buyback programs by melting down weapons recovered by police and sending them to Jewelry For A Cause, a company that takes the liquidated firearms and fashions them into silver and brass adornments valued at up to $375.

The details on the jewelry even include the serial number of the gun that was used in a crime…Uh, wear a part of grim history for a good cause, all proceeds from the sales goes toward more gun buy-backs in Newark. 

We think the bracelets are actually pretty dope.
