Victorian police have banned the use of T-shirt cannons at AFL matches after it was deemed they are too dangerous to be operated without a license.
The cannons are classified as a category E firearm which would require a special license that police have said they will not be granting to AFL clubs.
Other weapons in this category include shotguns, bazookas and mortars.More words like that even more offensive to liberty, pursuit of happiness, self expression and fun at Sports News.
T-shirts will be distributed in an orderly and safe fashion.
This isn't the first such incident. In looking for the item I noticed other cities in Australia busting this same move by the same reasoning. They went prostrate for actual firearm confiscation, they'll do the same for this. It's like the old aborigine saying goes give 'em an acacia and they'll take a eucalyptus every time and it always boomerangs back and bites like a dingo.
They're testing to see how far they can go.
