The Dead Dreamers

They were Abraham, Martin, JFK and too many Johns. Four decades ago on 12/8/80, an assassin’s bullets killed Beatle John Lennon

I remember that fateful night all too well as a young journalist working for NBC News in New York City.  Assassinated: December 8, 1980, The Dakota, New York, NY

Following Abe, MLK JFK and John Lennon’s murder Congress did nothing to bring about gun control legislation and Americans continue to pay the price.

Legislatures have banned books, but not magazines and assault rifles continue to sell faster than ever. Ask your local representatives when will this national nightmare end.
