Ongoing History of New Music Daily: Kurt Cobain’s suicide gun

This may sound like a gruesome question to ask, but whatever happened to the gun that Kurt Cobain used to commit suicide back on April 5, 1994? 

It was a Remington Model 11 20-gauge shotgun purchased at Stan Baker’s Guns Shop in Seattle for a little over $300. He got his friend Dylan Carlson to buy it. Courtney Love had the gun for a while after the police investigation finished with it.

But then she donated it to an anti-violence group.  The gun went to Mothers Against Violence who made make sure that the shotgun was melted down.
