What's this rumour about banning lever action rifles in Oz, or restricting them to 5 rds max?

I guess my 1860 Henry with 14 .45 CAS shells is out of the question?
But ain't it fun here in Texas especially loaded with real Gun Powder.

death of a 1000 cuts, in the interest of "public safety" lever action shotguns (not rifles YET) with a capacity of 5 rounds or less have been reclassified from category A to cat B, over 5 rounds they go to cat D, which is virtually impossible to obtain. this place is truly FUBAR. anyone want to adopt a cranky old aussie?

Back in the 90s I knew someone who immigrated to Australia because he was worried about his loss of rights in the US. I wonder how he's feeling these days?

Back in 2006 I began importing Chiappa (Armi Sport) 1892 rifles. First one I sold I quickly got a complaint that it would only accept 5 rounds. Turns out they had a rod in the magazine to restrict the capacity. It was easily removed.
