An art installation named "Metro Gun Share Program" is on display in Chicago's Daley Plaza until Wednesday.

The installation, commissioned by the Brady Center, a gun control advocacy group, was presented by the Escape Pod, a Chicago advertising agency.

The installation is equipped with 10 replicas of the AR-15 semi-automatic rifle, aiming to raise awareness of how easy it is to obtain a weapon.
