31 Year-Old Handgun Violence Ad Still Relevant Today

It ran in 1981, shortly after John Lennon was murdered.

The ad ran soon after Lennon was shot dead by Mark David Chapman. Chapman shot Lennon in the back with four hollow point bullets from a .38 special.

The handgun death percentages by-country are basically the same today.

This is not the time to discuss this, though.

But this is the time to blame the lack of God in schools and gaming for the Sandy Hook shooting.

Ad created by Advertising Hall of Fame art director Rick Boyko.
