THE NSW Greens hope to reduce gun numbers in the state with new legislation it is putting before parliament.
"It is simply wrong that individuals can accumulate an unlimited number of deadly weapons with next to no scrutiny," says Greens MP and firearms spokesman David Shoebridge.
Under the legislation, registered holders would be limited to a maximum of three guns.

They’re not, but it’s a start.
They will whittle it down once they have it in place.
It’s that fourth gun tha’s the bad one.
He begins with a lie -- and goes downhill from there...
Okay, make mine a B.A.R., a 12-ga. pump and a .45 auto.
OK the first one is a Thompson 45 cal. w/50 round magazine, the second is an M-60 7.62 mm Machine gun, and the third is a 50 Cal. semi automatic sniper rifle with scope.
Will this new restriction apply to criminals also?
How many firearms can a person fire at one time?
It is simply wrong that individuals can be prohibited from accumulating an unlimited number of deadly weapons. Are there no real men in Australia?

I have maybe 15 guns and consider myself nearly unarmed.
Not in Australia. They have entirely too many Leftwingtards in government to be bothered with authentic criminals.
who the hell do you think you are.... lead nuts McGee
We had all our firearms taken...
Now, those that have them now have such limited ability too do so, restricted ownerships, totally locked down ownership.
Next time you open you yap, come talk with Me you mental midget, and I shall teach you about another country that is Not the USA.
You have hit the top of the list for being a Burke... look it up.
That sounds like a challenge to me :)
Seriously, the issue is having the right gun for the right job. I don't consider I have a large arsenal, but I have half a dozen guns. A semi-automatic ex-military rifle, a shotgun, a couple of handguns, and a couple of .22s.
If I had to get rid of three of my weapons, the two .22s would be the first to go. And when I went out rabbit shooting, I'd suddenly be using a FN-FAL against bunnies which is, just a bit of overkill.

Mate, we didn’t have all our firearms taken and I spend a lot of time here on FR trying to explain the facts about gun ownership in Australia to Yanks who believe we did. Yes, the rules can be pretty strict, and are pretty stupid at times, but please be careful how you talk about them, because those of us who’ve worked bloody hard to avoid worse controls have a much harder time because of issues like this. Do you know how hard it can be to buy a perfectly legal gun from some American suppliers because they think you’re asking them to sell you something that is illegal in Australia because somebody told them all guns are banned here?
I have 8. In Texas, my collection isn’t even a starter kit...
You can't let the state beat you down otherwise you might as well live in a third-world hellhole.
