I have been biting my lip in regard of your comments of Australian gun laws, I am always very forgiving in regard of ignorant people, you have no idea about law, the change in gun laws in 2002 was caused by a Chinese National after the monash university shooting (as I always say do not trust anyone you can blindfold with a shoe lace).
Your grasp of the law is very limited especially shown in your highlight, most law clauses have an either, or, and. Any dickhead in Australia can decipher it except you.

Most guns that were registered in 1997 their records have been lost so you keep 2 gunsafes one for the one before 2002 and one after 2002.
