http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/national-plan-to-outlaw-fake-guns/story-e6freuy9-1225800867507 NEW national gun laws will outlaw imitation firearms unless shooters hold a special licence to own them. The move follows a series of attacks using replica guns. A 10-year-old boy allegedly robbed a Hunter Valley video store with a replica gun two months ago. Two masked men with replica firearms robbed a fast food outlet in Padstow last month and a 77-year-old driver was robbed of his wallet in Manly by a teenager who was also brandishing a replica gun. Criminals have been importing imitation firearms from other states, modifying them and using them to commit crimes in NSW. NSW Police Minister Michael Daley said new national minimum standards affecting the possession, penalties and safe storage of imitation firearms were at a meeting in Perth yesterday. Mr Daley said ministers were now pressing the Federal Government to consider introducing an offence covering the unlawful trafficking of imitation firearms across Australian borders.
