I live in the South where gun ownership is common. Hunting & recreational shooting are part of the culture where I live.  Gun control is a heated debate.  Do I believe there are responsible gun owners? Sure.  Do I think I have the capacity to be a responsible gun owner? Sure.  Would I give up my right to bear arms?  Today–this minute.  The epidemic of gun violence has to end.  Maybe there is an answer to that epidemic that still allows for gun ownership.  But, today, as of this minute, no one has found it.  Today’s AAAD Artist of the Day, Annie Hermes, puts the question of gun violence in your face, on an enormous scale, in surreal color.  Do we have your attention?
