Title from publisher's Web site

"This is a print. This is a book. Printed in Gainesville, Florida, after the massacre at Stoneman Douglas High School. We cannot keep living like this -- in fear and in fear-mongering. This piece is part of the Enough is Enough print exchange to support Everytown for Gun Safety."--Colophon
"Safety is Not Promised is a maze book addressing the unsophisticated views we, as Americans, hold regarding the abundance of guns in this country. When there are more guns, bigger guns, there is more death, bigger death. We have a problem and we are doing nothing to correct it. Printed as part of the Enough Is Enough Print Exchange done in reaction to the AR-15 gun massacre at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida."--Crooked Letter Press website, viewed on January 30, 2019
