Fight for gun justice for Prestonpans man
A Braveheart re-enactor has been charged with firearms offences after his replica guns were seized by the police.
Adam Watters was wearing a William Wallace costume when he was detained in Edinburgh and taken to his home in Prestonpans to hand over the so called “blank-firers.”
The 44-year-old has vowed he will fight for justice in order to continue his educational work in local schools and his fundraising for the Battle of Prestonpans Heritage Trust.
Mr Watters’ weapons were examined and confiscated by police firearms officers last year following a complaint about “a man with a blue face firing a gun” during a street performance on the Royal Mile.
Despite his protestations that the flintlock pistols and short muskets used in his historical re-enactments were harmless replicas, he has now been charged with possessing guns without a licence.
