Gun ownership laws work well in NZ. All firearm owners must be licensed, not the firearm so no limit as to how many can be held and no serial number linked to owner for hunting rifles,shotguns but a secure safe is required.The licence holder must first pass a police check .They will look into mental health criminal convictions for drugs and violence offending. A stricter test is required for MSSA rifles and handguns and a more secure safe. I have a collector licence which covers all weapons, with these licenses the serial numbers are recorded .It works well with very little gun crime from legal firearm owners.

Welcome from across the ditch.
Great that NZ never followed our lead on registration.

It sounds like a very similar system to Canada. We tried the registration for all guns, but it was a total disaster and eventually they changed the laws to only require handguns and certain semi auto military style long guns needing registration. There is almost no gun crime perpetrated by legal gun owners here as well, yet the current government seems to think if they take certain families of firearms out of legal public ownership, all gun crime will magically cease.
