The symbolism behind the illustration is mostly obvious, but parts may be missed. The easy parts are the revolver buried like a seed, sprouting into life as a plant. The beginning of gun control would give way to peaceful societal life. However, the plant seen in the picture is based on the Gladorius flower, a flower known for strength... Getting it's name from the Gladiators, the plant grows with very sturdy and sharp looking leaves – almost like a sword. 

Now a couple other feelings may arise out of this... One is the view that gun violence may end, but other weapon violence would begin. The other could refer to the actual crafsmanship and say "The process may be ugly, but the result is beautiful."
