The power of images

Got the most part, I stay away from the political here. Yet this image, seen in the Seattle PI books blog, really struck me with its message. It is very powerful and could suit either a gun control or censorship campaign:


The organization it promotes, Moms Demand Action For Gun Sense In America, was formed following the Sandy Hook shootings. I don’t know who it is using for creative direction for its material, but it also has a rather impressive video on its site.

England, where no one has guns: fourteen deaths. United States … twenty-three thousand deaths from handguns. But there’s no connection and you’d be a fool and a communist to make one.

    No matter what your position is on either,it seems to me that both are choices. While I respect the views of others I do not surrender my right to make those choices for myself. The world would be a much better place if people quit trying to impose their choices over my rights.
