Q: It has been announced that Australia is to ban the unlicensed ownership of Replicas. Is this attempt to follow UK-Style Gun Laws based on an erroneous premise?

 

   Replica Guns To Be Banned?

The UK government has announced plans to ban the production, import and ownership of replica handguns. This new legislation is being drawn up due to a 66% increase in crimes involving replica handguns last year. The government has also announced they will be increasing the age to buy a knife from 16 to 18.

This ban is probably for the best as the number of crimes involving replica guns has risen dramatically in the last year.

It is sometimes very hard to tell wether a weapon is fake or not, so the ban will be a good way to calm Britains rising crime figures.
