Think about these farmers, minding their own business, when the Australian national government and their media decide to upend their world, 17 years ago. They did not register all of their guns. Some have said that they were storing some of the guns for neighbors and freinds. Who knows how much they will now have to suffer because of the ignorance of their urban cousins and the malevolence of their media and government.

Some of those are nice pieces. One looks like a Model 1887 lever action shotgun!

I’m amazed at how quickly Australia slipped down in national image, from this sudden anti-gun switch they did in the 1990s or whenever.
Australia went from wild, sexy and cool, to a shell of it’s old image, in no time.
Now they seem beaten and pathetic, tamed.

( Ben Bradlee-JFK told me that "he was all for people's solving their problems by abortion".)
The momentum and votes swung just at the right time to disenfranchise rural Australia. Fortunately, for now, the US is not quite so easily dismembered.
We are not far from it, though.
We must be ever vigilant and vocal.

Oh nose! Some ranchers in the outback have some Fudd guns. Why don’t they just leave these fellas alone?

Registration is about shifting burden of proof, just as any admition to authority ends up being used against the admiter. Before they had to prove you had guns in order to ask you anything. It is why NSA type spying is also illegal. Because it shifts the burden of proving good motive.
Liberals play that game by saying guns are evil.
Oh. And let us not forget that before government can confiscate those guns, most might end up being sold to criminals on the black market and reported stolen.
