Recent reporting of an air rifle accident, involving toddler Rashid Rullah in Birmingham, has prompted BASC to brand the BBC’s coverage of shooting incidents as “one-sided”.

“It is surprising that we were not asked for any input, whereas the Gun Control Network and others opposed to shooting were allowed significant access to airtime,” said BASC’s Dave Harper.

He added: “We are deeply concerned by the apparent one-sided approach to this story and the issues that surround it.”
