Organisations including the NRA and Sportsman’s Association contacted the Sun to draw attention to the perceived falsehoods it had printed, centring on its assertion that guns such as a .223 AR-15 were legal in the UK.

The newspaper said in its correction: “We would like to clarify that these replica guns are scaled down versions of the originals, requiring .22 ammunition rather than the more powerful .223 calibre.”
