Artist makes 'guns' from antique typewriters
Éric Nado — the artist behind the guns — has a history of making sculptures from distressed and antique objects.

Nado says he remembers growing up using his mom's typewriter. When the keys were pressed, he says it reminded him of a gun sound.
That memory was later funneled into his latest collection. Each "gun" uses every part of the typewriter it's made from.
Guns are often used in art or to inspire art and can provoke emotion and political views.
But the typewriter guns aren't tied to a specific political statement, though they might reflect on history.
If you want your own gun typewriter, a Canadian gallery is selling Nado's work for just over $2,100 a piece.
