Toy guns will have to be licensed in Queensland under new firearms laws

From the article:

Any item that looks like a gun will have to be licensed under several changes to the Weapons Act being considered by the Queensland State Government.

Even guns made out of materials as unlikely as soap or plastic may have to be kept under lock and key if they could “reasonably be taken to be a weapon”.

The draft act says an imitation is a “reasonable copy” of a weapon that is not capable of causing death or injury.

“If it looks like a gun and feels like a gun, it will have to be licensed,” said a government source.

“We just want to know where they are.”

It is unclear how the draft affects toy guns.

Failure to license an imitation weapon will carry a maximum $4500 fine under the proposals and incorrect storage carries a penalty of $750.

Come on Australia, how the hell are you going to enforce this?

I mean are you going to arrest kids just because they are playing police and robbers and using sticks as guns?

This is retarded.

WOG out.

    Isn’t it the most ridiculous thing that you have heard? But this is so typical of the QLD Labor Government, they keep coming up with these stupid laws, (for our own good of course) This Government really needs to get out amoung the people, and live in the real world.
