"Time to Pick Up a Gun!?!"

"Time to Pick Up a Gun!?!" | Poster | Wisconsin Historical Society
Handmade poster alluding to a statement from American social and political activist Tom Hayden, in which he allegedly asked, "[Is it] time to pick up a gun!?!"  A long-haired man with a peace-symbol necklace stands atop a rifle.  The meditation on the bottom addresses its reader directly, discussing the quote as it pertains to social revolutions and Christianity.  The additional scrawls were presumably added by readers while the poster was hanging for public consumption.
