John Lennon bloody glasses photo: Yoko Ono tweets photo of Dec. 8 1980 glasses in gun control debate

Yoko Ono has entered the debate over gun control with a handful of tweets and one arresting image.

On Wednesday, the artist and activist posted a snapshot of a pair of bloody glasses, frames that her late husband John Lennon was wearing on the day he was murdered outside of his New York home.

"Over 1,057,000 people have been killed by guns in the USA since John Lennon was shot and killed on 8 Dec 1980," Ono said along with the photo.

"We are turning this beautiful country into war zone," she continued. "Together, let's bring back America, the green land of peace."
