Lever-Action Shotguns Headed For Australia?

posted on July 15, 2015

Australian gun-banners are in a dither about the Adler Lever Action shotgun. It seems a little overwrought that a 165-year-old design should cause such a ruckus, but that’s gun-grabbers for you. The problem remains the same for Australians who wish for an Adler: They can only hope the new shotty will find its way into a relatively less-restrictive classification of ownership. The jitters are based on the highly subjective notion of the speed at which firing can occur, and the obsession with instrumentality.

Pay attention, folks: Remember that Aussie gun control is well and widely lauded by the likes of President Barack Obama, and it’s hard to believe 2016 Demo front-runner Hillary Clinton is far behind with comments like these. (Listen for the nifty sotto voce lie at ~1:00, too.)
