Controversy over Raheem Sterling's tattoo of an M-16 assault rifle on his leg

I think it is really bad judgement on Raheem Sterling part to have this dire tattoo carved on his leg for all to see.
Particularly at a time when he is likely to play football in The World Cup.
What say you?

The picture was taken at England’s training ground in Staffordshire as players assembled to start preparations for the World Cup, which begins in just over a fortnight.

Critics promptly condemned it as provocative and irresponsible, pointing out that more than 60 people have been killed by gun and knife violence in London this year alone and that similar weapons have been used in countless recent mass shootings in the U.S.

Branding it ‘sickening’, ‘disgusting’ and ‘totally unacceptable’, the lobby group Mothers Against Guns called for him to be dropped from the England side.

Lucy Cope, whose son was shot dead outside a London club, said: ‘He’s supposed to be a role model, but chooses to glamorise guns.’

Last night, her words were echoed by the father of Damilola Taylor, who was stabbed to death in a street attack aged ten.

Richard Taylor told The Sun: ‘Young people look up to footballers. Sterling hasn’t displayed the discipline we expect. He should be reprimanded and made to apologise to victims’ families.’

Iffat Rizvi, who runs the Starr anti-guns campaign, said: ‘This is disrespectful to young people who lost their lives.’

Those people frothing at mouth because Raheem Sterling is "glamourising weapons" with his discreet tattoo will have a coronary if they ever visit the Emirates Stadium...... their logo is a cannon.

They think with their feet, Nom. They don't need common sense or tactful thought.

Try reading the link in the OP, and the mail have ran a campaign on several occasions in the past.
