Why do the folks down under need ammo? The government destroyed almost all their guns anyway! No handguns allowed, only single shot rifle and shotguns. In Australia, you can only have a firearm (with government permission) if you have a genuine need. Self defense or protection, is not one of those needs. Australia gun ban has left their citizens defenseless against criminals! Ever wonder why Australia does not classify home invasion as a violent crime? Because their stats would sky rocket. The crimes against the elderly in Australia have increase dramatically because of their inability to defend themselves.
Nice going Australia.
