Coalition to Stop Gun Violence

After the murder of John Lennon, Harry spent much of his time crusading for strengthening of gun control laws and raising funds for the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence: "The world is full of fear, I wasn't aware of how much fear there was, until this last couple of years — that the world is on the brink of chaos. Every human being at any given moment can go mad. And that's one of the reasons we've got to get rid of the handguns. I think that the President should write an executive order declaring a national state of emergency, 24,000 handgun deaths every year, and actually, physically, ban handguns. Give everybody six months to turn them in. When they do they get a tax credit. The remaining handguns are to be collected— Now, that will leave only the bad guys with the guns, but now we will know who to identify. You have the right to self-defense, but you don't have the right to carry arms if you're not in the militia. The Second Amendment says, 'A well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state ' well, we have that. It's called the National Guard, established in 1912. So if you want a gun, join the National Guard and you'll get to shoot their guns. Another alternative is, if you have a gun then you must keep it at the gun store and only use it for target range shooting."

Robin Cruikshank

Robin Cruikshank redecorated Harry's London Apartment. "Robin Cruikshank was Ringo's partner at the time, and he did interior decorations, furniture and stuff. I said to Robin, 'Just do whatever kind of decorating you want to do with it. I'll sign a blank check, you fill it in. Have you ever had a dream design you wanted to do? Use this place, 'cause I'm only going to be using it six months out of the year.' So I came back to London six months later and it was all done. There was a ribbon on the door there to welcome me, they had fresh fruit in the fridge. I looked around and I said, 'This is incredible.' This flat had felt wallpaper ... bright, royal blue with yellow, red and green felt stripes. It was like, 'Wow! Where am I?' It was all steel, chrome and glass. Everything was purchased for the space.

"I went to check out the bathroom, and there was a beautiful glass tub with a design of scenery of trees and bushes cut in. But then there were two sinks and two mirrors. I looked into one and there was a picture of an apple tree, and the other one was a hangman's noose. I called Ringo and said, 'I don't think this is too funny. Do you mind?' He said, 'What?' I said, 'The hangman's noose in the bathroom.' He said, 'What? Hold on a second ... Joan, have someone go over to Harry's place and put up something else ... Don't worry, Harry, I didn't even know about it. Robin must have done it.' So I said, 'Thanks,' and he sent over a nice apple tree mirror to take its place. But ever since that day something struck me. It's like whistling in the graveyard, but ... then, when Mama Cass died, it was, like, wow. Then when Keith Moon died ... Those phone calls (notifying me) were devastating, you know?" -- Harry
