There is no guarantee of the right to hold weapons in our constitution as there is in yours. So if “The People” i.e. the voting joe schmoe thinks it is reasonable and they are happy that each gun held should be registered then I see that as the height of Democracy - I know plenty of gun owners and they do not find it burdensome.
The only part of the Law I find draconian is the right of the Police to come and see how your guns are stored without warrant - I don’t think owning a weapon should give them that right - I have a knife block that I store my kitchen knives in and they can’t come in and check that - I think that part of the law should be challenged.
It is not so hard to sell a gun off either - a form and some ID to show how and to whom it was disposed - I have to do the same when I sell my car.
Alright I oversimplified it takes 28 days to transfer one as a check of license is needed.
The rule of thumb is that a K9 unit coming to sniff around have their dogs muzzled while the owner’s dogs can freely eat their food. Thus this places a controled jurisdiction of the police and the owner has his rights and properties respected.
Sadly nowadays they have the guns and we have to make precautions or have no gun when they come knocking. Under the Queen’s colony the enlisted like life given her protecting the business is understandable. Such quartering would be acceptable. However if independent or settling independently, new jurisdictions should be respected. This was not applied in places like Rhodesia and the rule on the British was delegated to alienating powers that turned it into Zimbabwe. The guard was changed.
Places like Australia need not go from one master under the Queen to another under the guise of strange legislations denying the right of self settlement or divorce from said links and services to said powers. When England surrendered Honk Kong to mainland China, a sort of domino precedent effect was established. How can there be free trade without recognition of sovereignty? The isolationists are those importing isolationists, not those protecting themselves from outfits like Islam or the communists who refuse to reciprocate the right and recognition to unique sovereignty.
