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 this, my argument will be that it`s not “commercially manufactured” and I`m following Victorian law as it is WA: slingshots are illegal in Western Australia and cannot be sold. WA Weapons RegulationsNT: Slingshots are illegal in the Northwest Territories and cannot be sold. Arms Control OrdinanceNT TAS Legislative Database: Slingshots are legal in Tasmania as long as they are used on private property (Confirmed by contact at www.customs.gov.au/webdata/resources/files/ImportingWeapons-PoliceCertificationTest.pdf) TAS Weapons ActImitation of firearmsSA: Slingshots are considered a dangerous item and an exception must presented.SA Weapons ActSA Weapons RegulationSA Police – List of Prohibited weapons The laws around Slingshots vary depending on the state or territory you live in. You can legally buy a slingshot in Queensland, ACT and Tasmania, but not in New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia or the Northern Territory. (The only exceptions are approved toys designed specifically for children.) Thanks Michael for the analysis. Another question for you that leads to this topic. Many individual units of the SSE are in possession of a tree sling that is locked so that members do not have access to it. What are the legal consequences for units in possession of these prohibited weapons? Should they be handed over to the police? It does not look like we will get a licence in the future, so what are the options? New South Wales Police are warning community members against illegally importing and possessing banned weapons such as the RS-X7 “Doomsday” Slingshot crossbow. The law is not directly applicable, so I don`t think there is a real risk that “armed criminals” (or anything similar) are about to raid the local SES unit. Possession refers to having control, so if I were the controller of the unit, I would at least give the keys to the closet to someone at the region headquarters so that the local unit can say they are not “possessed”.
The slingshots remain the property (even if they are illegal) of the SES, so instead of giving them to the police, I would ask the Region to pick them up (I would not deliver them) to take them out of the unit, and then the question of how they store them and what risk they are willing to accept that they are given to the employees. 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! 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. 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. Why are the slings I buy abroad confiscated by customs? And how do I create my own? Thanks, Slingstar Similarly, it is illegal to own 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. Tasmania: Slingshots and coins can be legally used on private property. A font certification test is required for import.
Only slingshots with braces are banned in South Africa. 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).
