Yoko Ono tweets picture of John Lennon's bloody glasses

Yoko-tweet

We'll not clutter your thoughts here with a bunch of words. Yes, that's a picture of John Lennon's bloody glasses Yoko Ono tweeted on Wednesday to her 3.6 million followers.

Ono's accompanying message says simply, "Over 1,057,000 people have been killed by guns in the U.S.A. since John Lennon was shot and killed on Dec. 8, 1980."

She added: "The death of a loved one is a hollowing experience. After 33 years our son Sean and I still miss him. Yoko Ono Lennon"

This, on the heels of news the Democrats are retreating now in their legislative effort to ban assault weapons in the wake of the killings at Sandy Hook
