John and Jayne Atkinson lost their 13-year-old son George in 1999 when he was hit accidentally at close range by an air rifle shot by his cousin.
Ever since the tragedy, they've been campaigning for the laws relating to these sort of weapons to be changed changed. But 17 years down the road, John and Jayne have made little progress.
In December a programme will be introduced in Scotland which will force anyone with an air rifle to have licence - would this be a good start for England and Wales? George's parents definitely think so, saying that current laws are inadequate.
They joined us on today's show to tell their story. Plus we get the thoughts of Mike Eveleigh, Senior Firearms Officer at The British Association for Shooting and Conservation.
