On what would have been Yoko Ono and John Lennon’s 44th wedding anniversary, Ono tweeted out a photo of the bloody glasses her late husband wore the day he was shot and killed in New York City.

The former Beatles’ widow tweeted out the photo five times along with four different anti-gun messages.

President Barack Obama’s official Twitter account retweeted one of Ono’s posts Thursday, which estimated the amount of deaths from gun violence since the day Lennon died, the Washington Post noted.

After tweeting out this message twice, Ono tweeted out the photo again with the caption, “31,537 people are killed by guns in the USA every year. We are turning this beautiful country into war zone.”

On the third time she wrote, “Together, let’s bring back America, the green land of peace,” along with the image of Lennon’s bloody glasses.

Her final tweet on the subject read, “The death of a loved one is a hollowing experience. After 33 years our son Sean and I still miss him. Yoko Ono Lennon.”

The Obama administration has been pushing for stricter gun laws on universal background checks and limits on high-capacity magazines following a string of mass shootings in 2012.
