All of the above guns are illegal in Australia. A few types are legal if registered with the government which costs a $20 fee. Currently, there is an amnesty period during which Australians can surrender their guns without prosecution.

We Americans seem to be the only citizens in the world who can own these "horrible, destructive weapons." Yet, some (most) liberal politicians want us to be "Just like them."   Evil or Very Mad

I have a good friend that lives in Australia six months out of the year, the rest of the time is here in Utah, off shore oil guy.  He said the papers make it look like everyone lost their guns, that's not true. If you look at what was collected, most are war surplus, old broken or wore out firearms. The good firearms were just hidden or moved out of country like my friend did. Like he said "Who's going to give the government an expensive firearm that will end up in a private collection, then moved to another country."

I believe that they cannot legally have a firearm capable of multiple shots without reloading, although double barreled shotguns may be legal but not those 'dangerous' pump shotguns that can hold 3 or more shells.

Hiding guns doesn't make them legal, so hunters are at a disadvantage. They may still have their guns but can't get caught using them.

The high quality collections drove sporting goods stores nuts for a period with firearms being sent to kin here and other parts of the world for safe keeping. They have loosened up on their requirements now - what they thought would work didn't - crime is busier than ever.

Chris (my friend from there) said they could still legally keep SXS's and now can have pump shotguns with a (fixed) magazine that will only hold (4) rounds, (5) counting one in chamber. The (fixed) part is just a plug with an end cap coated with a bright color so its easy to see.
