In other words, if your child makes a sling with court sticks, he will not commit a crime. But if you buy a slingshot or give someone other than a child a homemade slingshot, you could be charged with possession of a prohibited weapon and face a maximum sentence of 14 years in prison. I was told that we might not get a new licence because of legal risks or liability to the licensee, and I was wondering if you could explain what that might be? In New South Wales, a slingshot meets the definition of a prohibited weapon and is therefore illegal to use or possess. All slings with wrist clips are prohibited by customs. Wrist splints increase accuracy and power, some say by 20%. Check your state or territory regarding your right to own one, we are not free, we are slaves. Wage slaves in Australia are pathetic and I wonder what would upset us enough to rage against the machine. No Saturday night footy? Idiots! I bought a sling abroad and bought it at ok customs (at Perth airport). I declared it (it was carved from an animal horn, so declared as an animal product – not as a weapon). The customs officer who inspected my bags went to get his supervisor who asked me if I had an armrest for it, and I only had the 1. It was only the 1 and no hugs, so I was allowed to put them on. I think the fact that it was not commercially produced was the reason it was let through. Similarly, it is illegal to possess a laser pointer in New South Wales if the laser pointer pen consists of a battery-powered handheld device with more than 1 milliwatt of power and is designed or adapted to emit a laser beam and can be used to aim, aim or align.
Current state laws and gun laws for each Australian state, so you can determine if your knife or slingshot is legal in your state, for example. We also highlighted some points where we identified limitations. While we regularly review current laws and regulations, they are complex and subject to change. Any summary or information below is never intended to be legal advice in any way. NSW: Slingshots are illegal in New South Wales and cannot be sold (with the exception of the Pocket Shot Slingshot, as it is not a Y-frame). NSW Weapons ActSchedule 1 – Forbidden WeaponsSlingshot (a device consisting of an elastic band attached to the forks of a “Y” shaped frame)” You`re right, the safest legal option would be to ask the police to come to the unit and pick it up, but that wouldn`t be without problems, as regional and state employees would no doubt say: “We didn`t want you to do that, we`re a government agency and we`re working with the minister and the police to find a solution.” And whatever the merits, you risk a setback if you do not address the subject as described in the Operations Bulletin. The answer is wrong and far too long. The right answer to why you can`t import slingshots is that they`re fun. And as we all know, any form of pleasure is forbidden in Nannyalia. ACT: Slingshots are currently available for sale, but you must be over 18 to buy them. CWA Prohibited Weapons Act – Schedule 1VICTORIA: Commercially produced complete slings are considered prohibited weapons.
VIC Weapons ActControl of Weapons Regulations 2011 Do they really need a hunting slingshot, they could use a homemade one for their purpose, a poorly performing sling they don`t have, which makes a hole in the iron corrected. Since August this year, New South Wales Police have received information about the illegal importation and possession of RS-X7 “Doomsday” Slingshot crossbows from the United States of America (USA) to NSW. “Specialized detectives are currently investigating the possession of ejectable crossbows across the state. Initial reports have identified several individuals who recently purchased these weapons in Las Vegas, Nevada. “We are asking community members who have a crossbow or other prohibited weapons in their possession to immediately hand over the items to the police – otherwise detectives will soon be at your door to seize them,” Detective Watson said. NSW: In New South Wales, any device consisting of an elastic band attached to the forks of a Y-shaped frame is classified as a prohibited weapon. Homemade slingshots for a child during the game are allowed. SA SES is looking for a pneumatic launcher for the throwing bag. Like many states, the slingshot is a controversial device, and the person should be the licensee to use such a device. The air gun is a much safer and less dangerous device, and while the pressure for launch is about 100 more psi, the pressure device is made via a manual pump.
By using a ball valve trigger, a weighted throwing bag can be easily directed to the desired location. Bendon Clarke is the contact person for more information. the ban on slingshots in Victoria applies to a sling that is “commercially manufactured and intended for distribution.” I have a sling of a piece of tree with which I hunt small game. If I ever get caught with that, my argument will be that it`s not “commercially made” and that I follow Victorian law as it is. As we recently noted in an Ask LH on airsoft weapons, Australia has pretty strict rules when it comes to projectile weapons.
