Yoko Ono Tweets Anti-Gun Statement on Her 44th Wedding Anniversary

Today would be the 44th wedding anniversary for John Lennon and Yoko Ono. It is, of course, a somber day for artist and musician Ono; this December marks the 33rd anniversary of Lennon’s murder. To honor the occasion, Ono tweeted a pretty strong statement about rampant gun violence in America, incorporating the image of Lennon’s bloody glasses which adorns the cover of her first album following her husband’s murder, the fantastic Season of Glass.

Ono and Lennon were returning to their home at The Dakota following the recording of Ono’s classic "Walking on Thin Ice," on which Lennon played guitar. He was holding a copy of the final mix when he was shot in front of his home by Mark David Chapman. Take a listen below.
