11-year-old California boy sells gun art in New York City
June 25, 2013, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

NEW YORK — A Los Angeles boy who hopes to get people talking about gun violence made $2,500 in New York City selling his art made from toy guns and tape.

According to the Daily News (http://nydn.us/17wYcoA ), Charles Gitnick sold 17 pieces on Prince Street and West Broadway this weekend, where many artists sell their wares to wandering pedestrians.

The 11-year-old says he wraps toy guns in multicolored tape and then splatters the canvases with paint.

His parents tell the newspaper they came to the city in March and Charles sold 20 pieces and made $2,000.

Charles says he feels that guns are scary and dangerous. He hopes his art gets people talking about gun violence.

He also says he wishes guns were only in art galleries.
