I have an ar in my truck, I carry a 9mil or 45 on me and I can buy ammo at Walmart or at a hardware store for crying out loud.
But I need a permit to buy primers and then store them in a safe?.......wow


Yep, imagine California...except we can still own guns here :-)

You have to have legitimate reason to have a firearm or ammunition in your vehicle, en-route to or from the gunshop, range, hunting, etc. Each state has their own laws for securing your firearms and ammo in a vehicle. In Victoria, the firearm just needs to be unloaded and concealed from view, with ammo locked in a box separately.

Although the Police insist we keep ammunition and components secured, ammunition, powders and primers are covered by Worksafe, so Police have no authority to inspect your ammunition storage. But they can, and will, charge you if they find unsecured ammunition in your home or vehicle, or on your person (in WA that includes empty brass and bullets).

Queensland is the only state I know of that gives Worksafe authority to enter private residences to inspect ammunition storage, but I believe they would only do so if they've had a complaint.

So, unless somebody makes a complaint to the authorities that "He's got bbbbbbullets in his house!", it's very unlikely your ammo storage would ever be a problem.

Should we tell him about our self-defence laws :-)

Our laws allow us to use any reasonable means to defend ourselves, even a firearm, if the circumstances permit you to retrieve one from the safe, and find the ammo, all while in immediate fear for your life. But if you do use a legally-owned firearm, even an unloaded firearm, it will be a breach of your licence conditions to use it for a purpose outside of those listed on your licence - sport/hunting/collecting/etc - so you will be charged regardless.

I think you can be assured that we all regularly drool over the situation you have over there :-)
But Youtube links are fine.

This situation is quite recent, pre-'96 we didn't have any of this crap.

That's still 22 years of concerted govt demonisation, ably assisted by a rabidly anti media.
