...Although the same Victrix bolt-action rifle is marketed in the US as suitable for uses including “military” and “law enforcement”, in Australia the Victrix (and similar weapons) are categorised with firearms licensed for hunting and sport.
Gun control advocates have dubbed the Victrix guns “high-powered and
military-style”. They warn that an increasing range of these guns –
which still have design specifications that allow them to be classified
as sporting and hunting firearms – have hit the Australian market.
Gun Control Australia has called for a rewrite of weapons
classifications, which the group says are outdated and do not properly
codify modern hi-tech guns.
Because bolt-action rifles are just as bad to these clowns as semi-auto, and they want ALL of them banned.
