  • NSW Prohibited Schedule April 2013 Update

    I found this while looking on the web. You guys have it bad in NSW, cant even own a revolving rifle

    First from St. Mary's:

    St. Marys Banning Pistol Stocks

    And I thought they must have changed the laws and then I found the new and updated schedule of prohibited weapons for NSW:

    NSW Prohibited Weapons Schedule

    A quick run down of what is scary in NSW

    Schedule 1 Prohibited Firearms

    propelling projectiles in rapid succession during one pressure of the
    trigger.

    elsewhere in this Schedule).

      I guess NSW is going to need to get rid of all their fire extinguishers!

    Utter stupidity

    If I wish to take my 40mm black powder cannon with it's 110cm barrel to Vic for a shoot, I would have to travel via NT and SA or risk prosecution. Which begs the question, if a licensed firearm is legal in Qld and there are recognition of interstate licenses then would it be legal to shoot a firearm that is registered in Qld suddenly become illegal across the border?????
    Hold still varmint, whilst I plugs ya!

      Yep, sure would. Seem to remember a Queensland member on the old forum asking about bringing his Remington pump-rifle with collapsible Magpull stock to NSW for a hunt and he determined after sending off enquiries to FAR etc that it indeed would not be legal. Same thing with your QLD-legal Rossi Circut Judge or 30-round AR magazine; all a big no-no here.

      That's the joke about Howards "National Firearms Agreement"; it promised uniform gunlaws across all the states but delivered nothing of the sort. Still, as bad as things are here I wouldn't want to live in WA & be interested in owning firearms anytime soon.
