Imagine

This is the last known photo of John Lennon. Hours later he was dead. The other chap in the photo is Mr Chapman, the man who shot him. Thirty three years ago today.

  1. It’s sad how many crazy, violent, gun-toting people we have here in America. The country would be a better place if people weren’t armed to the teeth.

    1. I know that stats are…well, stats. But I read one recently which I felt was particularly profound. I haven’t bothered to look further into it, to verify its accuracy. But I suspect it isn’t off the mark.

      It went something along the lines of: More Americans have been killed by guns inside the US in the last 45 years, than Americans have been killed in every single war they have fought beginning with (and including) the War of Independence in 1776.
