Yoko Ono, the widow of slain Beatle John Lennon, has weighed in on the issue of gun control by tweeting a photo of the blood-spattered eyeglasses worn by the legendary musician when he was fatally shot by a deranged fan more than three decades ago.
Her tweet, on the 44th anniversary of the couple’s marriage: “Over 1,057,000 people have been killed by guns in the USA since John Lennon was shot and killed on 8 Dec 1980.”
Her comments came a day after a hotly debated assault weapons ban was officially dropped from Senate gun control legislation prompted by the Newtown, Conn., school shooting. DA comment: john lennon was not put down with an assault weapon but message both loud and clear. very disappointed, and hard to believe, a majority of public officials afraid and incapable of re-crafting a dangerously broad gun control issue. who is protecting the people?
