An old article but an interesting read.
Fire arm ownership is increasing - number of households with guns is going down.


Police gun data shows extent of private arsenals in suburban Australia

The NSW figures, which were only released after a protracted court appeal, show the total number of registered guns in NSW has jumped by 65,000 in just two years.
There are now 915,000 registered firearms in the state, including registered collectors and dealers.
"If this trend is allowed to continue, NSW will have over 1 million registered guns within just three years," Mr Shoebridge said.
The data shows fewer households own guns, but ownership has become more concentrated.
The highest numbers of gun owners are in northern and central NSW.
The Barwon region, which makes up most of north-west NSW, tops the list with 8,617 gun owners sharing 41,181 firearms. In the Northern Tablelands region there are 7,715 owners; while in the Bathurst area there are 7,423 gun owners.

Notice they have shown three "RURAL" based areas!

Figures are skewed up there!

Maybe they should have shown the figures for the entire Sydney basin area!  a much lower percentage there!

Selective data to promote the anti gun agenda! >:(

I would expect there would be more shooters in the bush than in the city. Who wants the hassle of having to attend ranges and club shoots unless you are a dedicated target shooter. Blokes in the bush have guns as tools, not toys or playthings.

What about individuals who had taken a weapons license and acquired a pistol/rifle etc, then after that they slowly ordered the spare parts for those so called registered guns and built second and third guns then let the license expire and sell the original guns....  so how do you count this as gun owners???

Strange and funny to use rural area,s , of course there would be more guns per capita up the bush , and as for spre part made and even homemade one,s who would know the extent of how many are out there ,have seen quite a few over the years at certain associates places  ::) , all I know that as shooters etc all our weapons are legal and above board , why take the chance at being branded and shit I done my time years ago , every one I know is legal I think :-X , but they must be if they come to the range etc cause you don,t get in if your not?.

I know a retired dozer driver who makes one 6 shot 22mag revolver every week as they do not want to pay him a pension.
The number of so called homemade pistols and rifles being made in this country is in the 10's of thousands every year.
And now we have the muslim gun makers being given visas to live here and access to quality machine
tools to spend things up!
And that is not even mentioning the 10's of thousands of unregistered pistols and rifles being smuggled into aus each year.
And now the new 3D metal printers are coming on line the bullshit with weapons licencing is about to fall in a messy heap. The qld police date base crashed a couple of years ago and they lost over 2,000 pistol owners and 1,000's more long rifles owners who just disappeared out of the system.
Yep she is working like a well oiled machine. :o

Those weapon numbers include air rifles and paintball guns!
AND any and all major gun parts are considered a firearm in itself!

If one looks closely at the statistics they will see it is all a crock of poo!

In actuality very few actual rifles/pistols are stolen each year and many are recovered!

The number of illegal imports are low and the number of home made firearms is also low

Someone I knew had a single rifle with two ten rd mags and a box of .22 ammo to suit.
It was reported as fifty three high power weapons seized.  go figure!

Can never believe the media even if they do report exactly what they have been told.

it's called "spin" and spin = bullshit.

All figures get twisted. A fella in gympie had 20 police around his house and it was standoff
because he was armed and dangerous. In the end after all the bullshit had cleared he had a non functioning
"Red Ryder" BB gun!
All the unregistered weapons are always under quoted as is imported/smuggled firearms because they
do not want to know the truth or have it reported. Members of the police force themselves repurpose
in particular handguns every year. The last batch that came out of weapons licencing in brisbane when I was in the loop was over 60 handguns. This also occurs with longarms. To think the numbers are "extremely
low" is la la land thought process. Even some interstate dealers have 2 sets of books, one for on ticket and one for off ticket. One crew working out of darwin bought in more than 500 uzi's in the 80's, but at
$2500 a go back then it was way out of my financial possibilities.
