Anyone interested should take a look at some of the things Australia has banned.
Some literature, video games, films, Websites they had even banned Wikileaks for a while.
Yo-Yo Water Balls, Inflatable toys, novelties and furniture containing beads, Miniature motorbikes (Monkey Bikes), Novelty cigarettes (Puff
Cigarettes), Pools and spas with unsafe design features, Sky lanterns, ■Sunglasses & fashion spectacles Regulated, Tongue stud (no holes)Regulated,
■Contact lenses (novelty & cosmetic),■Dummies (flashing imitation dummies)Regulated, ■Toy guns & other projectile toys Regulated,
This is a small list of regulated or banned items. Nanny state indeed.
Looks like the government and the nannies have all the power there. Did you notice Yo Yo was on the list? It is funny but I am not laughing for some
reason maybe because it is kind of sad some of it is just ridicules. It looks like even toy guns are banned. There is a huge culture gap between us
even more stuff. And yup throwing
stars are on there.
Even those oh so dangerouse laser pointers.
Some laser pointers are now a prohibited weapon
On 17 April 2010 a regulatory amendment to the Summary Offences (Dangerous Articles and Prohibited Weapons) Regulations 2000 SA will come into effect
making hand-held laser pointers designed or adapted to emit a beam greater than 1 milliwatt (mW) a prohibited weapon.
Should you need to surrender your laser pointer, you can do so at any police station without fear of prosecution.
It is an offence to possess or use, manufacture, distribute, sell, supply or otherwise deal in prohibited weapons. The penalty for this offence is up
to two years imprisonment or a fine up to $10,000.
