Yesterday, we protested the 8 Brothers store and today we went by there to do a followup with the owner of the store to let him know that we mean serious business when it comes to selling BB guns in our community. We have a lot of work to do , but this is a start. Nakia Carr BouncetoThis Noveltee https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10152410931387736

On behalf of Nakia Carr , BouncetoThis Noveltee and myself , we would like to thank each and every person for coming out and supporting the protest at 8 Brothers Market today. Initially when we first talked about doing a protest a couple of days ago , we were thinking about just rallying and sending a message to the owners of the store and leaving at 2:00 PM. Well , with the help of some great community leaders , we set out in front of that store for 5 hours and encouraged people not to spend their money at 8 Brothers. At first , the workers at the store thought it was funny , but when they saw that we wasn't moving & that they were losing money , they ended up getting frustrated and closed their business for the day. While sitting in front of the store , we was able to identify at least twenty young boys , that was on their way to purchase a toy gun from the 8 Brothers store. Great work from the community today!We have to continue to hit them where it hurts and it's the pockets.#ella #Skeet #sheen #Donna #Tariq #rainbow #rfp #unityinthecommunity #iamsp #councilmanjohnson #dontshoot #rainbow #iamsp #pointbreeze #staterepharris #tcarpenter and many more.

When Sean and I confronted 8 Brothers about selling BB Guns to the kids in our community the other day , they flat out denied it , but the video shows otherwise. Why would they have BB Pallets on display , if they're not selling them? https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10152409020362736

Let's join Shawn and Nakia Carr today at the 8 Brothers Deli on the corner of Latona and Point Breeze at 1:00 PM to protest them for selling fake guns to the youth in our community...We need to send a clear message that this will not be tolerated in our community.We're already fighting the great fight by trying to get the real guns off the street , but we be damn if we allow these people to come into our community and send this negative message to our kids about guns. It's sad to see our youth run up and down the street with a toy gun acting as if they're going to shoot someone.What type of message are we sennding if we allow this happen?Remember it's a toy gun today , but it can be a real.one tomorrow. WE NEED TO SEE YOU GUYS AT 1:00 PM....We're going to use the Power of Social Media to shut down their business and send a clear message that this will not be tolerated.
