Yoko Ono took to Twitter yesterday to show her support for gun control. A series of tweets she posted was each accompanied by a photo of John Lennon’s bloody glasses, worn the day he was killed. The photo included the caption:
Over 1,057,000 people have been killed by guns in the U.S.A. since John Lennon was shot and killed on December 8, 1980.
A more personal tweet read, “The death of a loved one is a hollowing experience. After 33 years our son Sean and I still miss him. – Yoko Ono Lennon”
Yesterday also marked the 44th anniversary of Ono and Lennon’s wedding, in honor of which she also tweeted, “We decided that if we were going to do anything like get married that we would dedicate it to peace.” The post was accompanied by a link to her website ImaginePeace.com
