Australia: Lever-Action Shotgun Ban Might Lapse

posted on March 10, 2016

A ridiculous Australian ban on a shotgun that utilizes 165-year-old technology might be off the books by this summer.

State and federal governments are considering whether to extend a temporary ban on the seven-round Adler lever-action shotgun, and it could be considered as soon as April 8.

But Liberal Democrat Sen. David Leyonhjelm recently told AAP that extending the ban is unlikely. “It will probably be overtaken by election events and the ban is likely to lapse,” he said. “My feeling is that the state police ministers realize that there is no problem to be solved; that the availability of lever-action shotguns for the last 20 years has not presented a problem, so there’s no need to alter their categorization.”
