Daily Mirror And Arsenal Support Gun Crime

by | 11th, August 2008

GOOD news indeed that Arsenal football club have joined the Mirror’s anti-knife campaign.

The paper features pictures of Arsenal footballers Theo Walcott, William Gallas and Cesc Fabregas in anti-knife crime T-shirts.

The Mirror is against glamorising violence and last months brought news of how weaponry had been appearing on a T-shirt on open sale in London’s Oxford Street.

The paper was appalled and the offending items were removed from public view at the Selfridge’s department store.

For readers not au fait with Arsenal FC, they are nicknamed “The Gunners” and were founded by workers at armaments manufacturer in London.

That’s their club crest on the left – the one with the cannon symbol. It should be banned…
