Ray Carvell, pictured here in his Penrose gun shop, died this week. Ray was one of the good guys. The Carvell family and their shop hit the headlines in 2006 when a numb nut tried to attack the staff with a machete, and Ray’s son Greg shot him (the numb nut) in self-defence.
The resulting police persecution of son Greg, was very unpleasant for the family – as Free Radical readers will remember from Ray’s interview in issue 76. (You can read my posts on the shooting and subsequent prosecution here.)
I’d like to extend my best wishes and those of NOT PC’s readers to Ray’s family at this time.
