    Hope this is not a repeat. Can anyone validate the facts in this email? Sent to me by a friend, not sure if it is real or Memorex.

    Actually guns there aren't banned per se... but rather highly regulated following several rampages that took place in recent years.

    The emphasis is towards prohibition of carrying and towards guns sports, hence why most weapons are of the target variety (long slides and barrel models, comp versions etc).

    Then again there is the mandatory registration.

    But when you look at it, UK laws are far more restrictive than australian.
