On Friday March 20, 2015 Larry Martin and Marty Miller once again demonstrated the art of forging guns into garden tools, this time at State College, PA. The event, hosted by Raw Tools as part of their Peacemaker Tour, took place in and around the State College Presbyterian Church just outside of the Penn State Campus. Shane Claiborne was the main speaker at the event which also included Terri Roberts, mother of the perpetrator of the Nickel Mines school shooting. During the service a video feed played showing Larry and Marty working at the anvil while the congregation sang and worshiped together.
Several of the participants, including the chief of police, tried their hands at forging garden tools. This event was also covered by local and national media.
