Re: Comparison: Bushnell elite 4200 - Nikon monarch
South Africa - Here a firearm is not considered to be property. All gunowners now have to re register their firearms, write competency tests and motivate each and every differnt rifle they apply for. Let me say outright that my figures are not 100% acurate, but only about 25% of all legal weapons was succesfully relisenced over the past 3 years. New firearm licences are almost unheard of and loads of gunshops went bancrupt. You are limited to 2 rifles, unless you obtain dedicated hunter status (more tests and compulsory membership of clubs and hunts) allowing you 4 rifles.
Quoting someone from another website:
By 2010 the government would have suceeded in making 75% of guns illegally owned, and they would probably call that a victory of sorts.
