Firearms Explosion

Monday 6 November 2017

I’ve asked the minister for action to prevent gun violence HERE. The alarming report on gun regulation shows NSW has never complied with the 1996 National Firearms Agreement, with gun controls eroded further since the 2006 report. 

In two years, the number of guns increased by 65,000, with over 900,000 registered guns in NSW. The Sydney University School of Public Health report is HERE. The Greens have developed a website showing the number of registered guns and gun owners in local areas: www.toomanyguns.org. Support Gun Control Australia’s campaign at www.guncontrolaustralia.org.
