Yes the laws are very different to the US... but there is no "Total Ban" as is often touted in the US. And we ar enot at all like the UK.
Semi rifles shotguns and pump shotguns are highly restricted (not totally banned as I have friends who own all three legally.
All other action types of rifle and shotgun are not difficult to own. All firearm are registered.
Handguns you need them either for occupation (security industry) or competition, I have mine for the later.
