Careful sunshine appearances can be deceiving LOL!
There has been no news of how the cops found out about these guys but I suspect as so many of their weapons were unregistered and Queensland is currently cracking down on bikie crime that they may have been selling guns and ammo to what amounts to our organised crime syndicates here in Aus. If that is the case I have no sympathy for them. It really is not that hard to register and possess a weapon - only legal ones though - otherwise ya better hide ‘em good!
Somebody has put them to the Police I would imagine in exchange for leniency on a larger crime!

If they were storing guns for neighbors, then it is likely that quite a few knew that they had unregistered guns. The more people that know, the more likely that someone is to talk.
I am sorry, but between surrendering guns to a criminal inquisitive government shifting burden of job proof on the citizen and selling them to criminals, most people cannot be blamed for selling them thus.
This is why gun control backfires.
