Yesterday was the 44th anniversary of Yoko Ono's marriage to John Lennon, and she marked the occasion by offering a personal—and graphic—statement on the gun-control debate: She tweeted a photo of Lennon's bloodstained glasses. "Over 1,057,000 people have been killed by guns in the USA since John Lennon was shot and killed on December 8, 1980," reads the text accompanying the image, which she rapidly tweeted a total of four times.
