Currently, a new figure reveals that around more than a thousand of registered gun owners are dominating the weapon industry sales. This wasn’t expected more than five years later. The weaponry is used for pest control on the Lower North Shore through hunting and target shooting of wild pests.
Across the lower North Shore about 18,910 are registered with firearms,but only 4, 170 have licences since May 2015. Residential areas like those from Mosman, Hornsby, Turramurra, Roseville and Chatswood have nearly a thousand guns registered to their residents.
A reputable government spokesman said that there is a continuous buildup of firearms within the community, and for every nine residents in NSW, there is one owning a gun. People are now holding guns for no legitimate reason at all. And some of them are encouraging their own politicians to make laws to stop being fully armed and not to follow the dangerous path of what it’s like owning guns.
The main reason why Sydney people try to acquire their own guns is for pest control on the Lower North Shore to eliminate various feral pest infiltrations. They tend to scare the pests by pulling the gun and firing at them. In the North Shore area, there are several gun clubs and ranges opening. There are also those who travel the bush and on public land just to shoot these pests. They also buy firearms without acquiring proper documentation or licences and therefore, illegally own it.
Many stores in Sydney have extensive years of experience in selling guns. They say the reason why people buy the guns is for target shooting and hunting as a form of pest control on the Lower North Shore, specifically wild pests. People buying a gun have many legitimate reasons, especially if it’s aimed at killing pests. They may be used for clay pigeon shooting where they use it as a sport. People use the guns as a hobby by eliminating the feral animals.
However, a local gun club secretary noticed that there really is no increase in club members. They fear that such purchase is used for personal reasons to satisfy their wants of eliminating pests.
