Bans on specific types of firearms
All states and territories have either banned or restricted in accordance with the resolutions, the possession and use of automatic and semi-automatic longarms. The 1997 report noted that, contrary to the resolution, the Northern Territory permits the use of some semi-automatic firearms for sports shooting. This still appears to be the case.
With the exception of Victoria, all jurisdictions have banned the use and possession of fully automatic handguns in accordance with import ban.
