If legislators have their way here in New York, our gun shows will start to look similar to yours. It seems odd to have a "gun" show with only two gun dealers, neither of whom have much to offer. What are the laws in Australia regarding purchasing or selling firearms?

Default gun laws in australia

don't get me started on that subject il never get of the computer the laws on gun licenses is really strict you have to go to 6 pistol club comps per year if you don't.......no pistol and autos that word is only ever used when describing what kind of car you drive you drive its sad what our laws have become the guy at show wouldn't even let me touch or look at the 9mm because i didn't have my pistol license on me,.........what a joke you even have to pass a carachtor test and you had better not have a conviction for any crime or you will never have a legal pistol

Wow - that sounds really crazy.

Here in Pennsylvania, you get a background check and can walk out the same day with a rifle, handgun, AR, etc... To get a CCW so you can carry a handgun, it took a week to get mine back.

I'd still like to come visit Australia at some point.
