I just Saw this on another (not gun related) sight

Sorry if this is old news or not a worry, but it looked important, & they asked to spread it around the gun owners.

I haven't even had time to read the link & have to go now.... If it is BS or not important, mods, please feel free to remove this thread

The link to look for is in the OP's post

Geez Dingo, where's the link? You're giving us Aussies a bad name. Go easy on the rum mate. I've just had a skinful of good ol' Aussie Beenleigh and I know what it can do to you.

Sorry Fox

Was sure the link was there.... too much Pepsi Max I think

I was in a rush before, just had a quick look at it {the link in the first post of the thread} & it looks pretty ominous

They want folks to identify all their guns on their tax forms....

In general, it seems to be they are going to ammend a few things (aimed at handguns & parts of handguns) & the meaning of 'handgun'

Also, by the looks of it, slug every handgun produced with a $50 tax

How sleezy! I would be lookin' into this one if I were you guys. I am sure the NRA have their eyes on it tho.... still, take a look

The guy in the last post said it is something old, but 'has a grain of truth' so it is prolly dealt with, but worth takin' a look. There is a good link to a couple of sites dealing with 'rumours' in emails etc

It's absolute, 100% BS.

It's been discussed, and refuted, here numerous times.

Closed.
