This piece is number 17 in the Dead Feminists series, created in memory of the victims of gun violence-and in hopes of enacting strict controls to prevent future violence. The bullseye represents the golden target of sanity amid the scatter-shot opinions and half-cocked sniping of those on the extremist fringes. At the center of the debate is the precarious balance of right and responsibility. While we personally find it difficult to support private gun ownership outside of registered, legal hunting rifles, we also recognize that our beliefs represent just one side of our divided culture. In hoping to understand the love of guns many in our country share, we turned to legendary sharpshooter Annie Oakley, whose words pierce the heart of the matter.
A portion of the proceeds were donated to Demand a Plan, in hopes of enacting better gun control legislation.
