In 1989, the National Coalition to Ban Handguns changed its name to the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, in part because the group felt that "assault rifles" as well as handguns, should be outlawed. The photo was originally taken circa 1982/3, for ABC TV or TV Guide, for a series on gun safety. The US Govt then asked to use it for a commitee for Gun Saftey, and used it for 25 years. Then appeared without permission in 2 of the Lethal Weapons films, in police station. Only political poster made with a photo by Wood. He worked for Life Magazine for many years, took over 9,000 photos for them.
