WMD Revealed: Poodle and Toy Guns, oil on canvas, 10 x 20"

Out of the mouths of babes/youth!

I'm so proud of the young people for standing up to the adults in our country! This is what democracy looks like! Speaking up and changing the world! How sad that some of the adults are caught up in their fears or tangled in their purses provided by the NRA, that they are not listening to these very intelligent students who are making smart demands. "The NRA is a major campaign donor with five million members and an annual budget of more than $300 million" (The New York Review, April 15, 2018 P. 4)



Gun violence is a public health issue and should be treated as such:

1.Fund gun violence research and prevention

2. Eliminate absurd restrictions

3. Universal Background checks no matter where gun is purchased

4. High capacity magazine BAN

5. Limit Firing Power on the street
