Australians and Guns?

[youtube width=”560″ height=”340″][/youtube]

Any Australians that could provide some insight into how he has some of those guns?

I thought guns were highly restricted and auto ones effectively banned in Australia after the 1996 Port Arthur massacre, but then I saw that music video.

Wikipedia lists all the Australian firearms categories, notably this one:

Category R/E: restricted weapons: machine guns, rocket launchers, assault rifles, flame-throwers, anti-tank guns, Howitzers, artillery, .50-calibre BMG weapons, etc. (Collectors in some states only, weapons must be comprehensively deactivated. Deactivated firearms are still subject to the same storage and licensing requirements as ‘live’ firearms in many states.)

The Sporting Shooters Association of Australia (SSAA) makes no mention of the R/E category anyone on their website – HERE

Another thing that I found odd in the music video was that Steve fly’s somewhere, presumably in Australia (because of the Right Hand Drive car) to purchase that car to shoot up.  But he pays with US currency… is that commonplace in Australia?  Maybe that last part with the automatic weapons and the rocket launchers was filmed here in the U.S.?

  1. To film those sections, he went to Cambodia, where a lot of automatic weapons are left over from the war.

      Great info, thanks Ernest!

      Looks like a real pain in the ass there. I definitely wouldn’t want to live there for anything but the nice weather.

  2. Restricted weapons here in Canada include most of the hand guns. Prohibited weapons include some models of hand guns and just about everything you fired in your video. Wish we had more rights to arms than we have. Loved the video though.
