Complainant Name:
Mr George Wilkinson

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Yorkshire Evening Post


Mr George Wilkinson of East Grimsted complained that an individuals claim that it would be fairly easy to convert Airsoft Guns to live ammunition was inaccurate.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the complainants letter making clear that the guns in question could not be converted to fire live ammunition, and emphasising that tricking out a gun was not the same as converting it. The letter also set out the complainants views on the Gun Control Network, which he considered to use exaggeration.

Report: 76
