Southend rapper Sonny Green, 23, who led Saturday’s march (Ed: Yup, this dim bulb...) said: “I just don’t understand the need for a gift shop to be selling all different kinds of knives, as well as air rifles and other recreational firearms such as paintball guns.”Is it not implicit in the name 'gift shop'? I mean, if it was a hairdressers or a florist, you might have a point.
“These aren’t gifts, at least not to to me. While we have crimes like these happening on our streets, I don’t think there’s a place for them to be seen as a bit of fun.”Paintball guns shouldn't be seen as 'fun'? What on earth...!
The owner of the shop, who did not want to be named, said that they had been selling many of the knives and air rifles for around 40 years.
He also pointed out knives and potential weapons could be bought at a number of supermarkets and DIY stores, and that they always carefully asked for proof of identification.This attention-seeking moron doesn't care. He just wants to get his name in the papers. And the papers are happy to oblige.
