Well well. I wonder what clueless bureaucrat decided the firearms laws needed a bit of tweaking, all for our own good of course... From the 'Proposed amendments to the Firearms Importation Regime' Not only proposing a .50cal ban, but as a consultation paper seeking input as to which other military rounds should be considered. And who exactly is likely to be 'consulted'...wouldn't be the same Gun Control Australia who was instrumental in designing the 1996 laws, would it? "Calibres previously designed for military use"? Where is this likely to end? .223...308 etc Of course any chambering greater than .22 could be used to 'snipe' with. Note again the insinuation that these calibres need to be controilled lest they be used for "criminal or terrorist activities"....and by definition the only people who would be affected by these legislative changes would be the licensed, law-abiding shooter Here we go again.
