Arms Disarmed – Candy
About the artwork

But another, even darker, possible meaning emerges, at least for viewers in the US, a nation where, according to CNN, school shootings are nearly sixty times as frequent as in the other major industrialized nations combined. How is it that young people are getting access to guns seemingly as easily as they buy gumballs?
