"ANTI-GUN campaigners in Manchester are demanding that sportswear giant Puma withdraw a shoe which "glamorises guns".
The company has produced a limited edition £60 fashion-trainer called "Bonnie and Clyde" which has a picture of a sub-machine gun on the heel instead of the Puma motif, and the words "I steal for a living" on the sock liner. Bonnie and Clyde were violent American criminals in the 1930s."
this is from the Manchester Evening News. First comment posted underneath the story is ....
"This is insane. THEY ARE JUST SHOES! There is no such thing as gun violence. Dead is dead no matter how you get there. This is why I will NEVER visit the UK. It's a shame because I always wanted to see real castle's & 221B Baker street. Guns are freedom. Guns are the best invention since cookies. Guns enable a woman to defend herself against a rapist, a father to protect his kids from being abducted, etc.
