Enough is Enough!
On February 14, 2018, a messed up kid went to his old high school in Parkland, FL, and shot a bunch of people, killing 17 students and teachers. He used an AR-15 semiautomatic assault weapon capable of shooting 30+ rounds per minute. Those rounds have the energy and velocity to decimate internal organs. He legally purchased the weapon.
Easy access to assault weapons like these needs to stop.
We all know the lists of tragedies.
Enough is Enough — it’s way more than enough at this point.
As artists and printers, we created this print exchange to visually address the issue of gun violence, the sale of assault weapons in the United States, and the devastation and fear the problem has brought upon the citizens of this country.
Ellen Knudson of Crooked Letter Press, Gainesville, FL and Lisa Beth Robinson of Somnambulist Tango Press, Greenville, NC organized this print portfolio collaboration to benefit Everytown for Gun Safety.
