|Asinine, next is golf clubs and baseball bats.|
Why not?, politicians play golf, why not effect their hobbies and past times for a change, they are some of the least trustworthy people on earth anyway.
Reason for ownership,
Onerous licensing procedure
Mental health check( and as golf is known to cause frustration and anger, you fail if you WANT to play)
individual serial numbering of each club
individual serial number on each ball, your name and address to be permanently engraved on each ball.
Engraving MUST be done by an accredited and approved engraver.
Cant buy more than 1 ball at a time.
2 clubs only (no woods, they shoot too far)
Inspected secure lockup.
Double the cost of the golf club membership for the licence.
Massive water tax and huge safety zones around golf club areas.
Automatic gaol sentence for any miss use of any club, golf buggy, golf bag or Tee.
Automatic huge fine and public flogging for any damage done by your golf ball
Enforced public vilification via the media.
All the above to be administered by the current pro shooting organisations, NRA, SSAA etc.
Put me in charge, Ill sort it out.
