A `Dunblane` father is disgusted at proposal for a shooting range in Falkirk


“A father of a Dunblane massacre victim said he was `disgusted` a new shooting range in Falkirk is using real  deactivated  automatic weapons.”

“Black Eye Reality is currently seeking a public entertainment licence from Falkirk Council to operate the range, which will allow customers of `all ages and abilities` to get their hands on rifles, pump action shotguns, Sig and Glock pistols and tasers, at Coasters, in Grangemouth Road. The firm’s website states it is the only shooting simulator in the UK using real converted weapons and similar systems are used to train police officers and military personnel.” 

“Doctor Mick North, who lost his five-year-old daughter Sophie in the 1996 shootings, heard about the Black Eye Reality shooting range through his work as a member of the Gun Control Network.” 

“He said: `I have to say I’m disgusted at the thought that anyone can take pleasure from this type of activity and that there are those who wish to make money from it. Looking at the pictures on their website it’s clearly being sold on the basis that people will get a kick from using real guns, and the presence of a child in one of the photos is particularly worrying`.”
