The Washington Examiner on Saturday reported that Australia, Australia and Canada have passed legislation that requires anyone with a firearm to register and be licensed by the government.
The United Kingdom, however, has been one of the only countries that doesn’t have a registry, according to a report from the Australian National University’s Institute of Public Affairs.
The U.S. has not passed legislation on its gun registry.
The law is based on an executive order signed by President Donald Trump, but its implementation is a work in progress, with a federal appeals court ruling that the president’s executive order doesn’t apply to the U,K.
While Canada and Australia have similar gun laws, Canada’s system is stricter and requires gun owners to get their licenses in person.
In Australia, licensed gun owners must show that they have a “good reason” to own a firearm, but the law has not yet been finalized.
The Australian Federal Police said it is “aware of reports that firearms may have been stolen from licensed firearms owners in Australia.”
Australia’s law is similar to that of other nations, including Canada, the U and U.N. members, where licensing requirements vary widely depending on the type of firearm used.
