Gun club backs firearms' audit

GUNS should be locked away, according to Richmond River Gun Club president Mike Sullivan.

So it is no suprise he supports a gun audit being conducted by the police.

“People with nothing to hide have nothing to fear,” said Mr Sullivan, a former policeman of 35 years.

Mr Sullivan, a gun owner since he was 14, said guns were once a part of rural life but the times had changed.

The community expects they should be locked away and there was no credible argument against it, he said.

Mr Sullivan said members of his gun club had no objections to the audit.

A 2008 review of NSW firearms laws has recommended an audit of every home and business where firearms were stored be conducted.

The audit, to be conducted across the whole state, has already begun.

Police will conduct safe storage inspections by prior arrangement with people licensed to own a gun

Under the Firearms Act, licensees must allow police to conduct a safe storage inspection on their premises.
