Shepard Fairey and the NRA

Shepard Fairey and the NRA

Growing up in a small mountain town in Colorado, guns were everywhere. I myself am not opposed to gun ownership. The reason I like this photo however is because it portrays the contradictions of a belief in “pro-life” ideology and unrestricted use of guns. In refusing to consider even minor requirements like background checks, we do a disservice to those marred by gun violence.

Mostly, I like this photo because it will piss off a lot of Christians who think they can believe in war and pro-life sentiments. As I heard Chris Haw says once, “Our money says in God we trust when our economy is founded on the seven deadly sins.”
