Yoko Ono marked what would have been her 44th wedding anniversary by launching an anti-gun protest and sharing a photograph of the bloodied glasses her late husband John Lennon was wearing when he was shot.

The Beatles star was murdered in New York City in 1980, and Ono remembered the tragedy on Tuesday (20Mar13), exactly 44 years after she married the musician on 20 March, 1969.

Ono posted a poignant photograph of Lennon's blood-spattered spectacles with the caption, "Over 1,057,000 people have been killed by guns in the Usa since John Lennon was shot and killed on 8 Dec 1980... 31,537 people are killed by guns in the Usa every year.
