Premier Mark McGowan and Police Minister Paul Papalia on Tuesday announced an overhaul of the state’s gun ownership laws.
It has been revealed the number of licensed firearms in the state had soared by 60 per cent, with a gun owner on close to every suburban street.
A WA Police map showed around 3.4 per cent of the population, or 89,000 people, hold gun licences. They possessed, on average, four firearms each – which reflected national figures.
And while the number of licensees remained steady, the number of registered guns in the state had increased from 218,765 guns in WA in 2009 to 349,492 in January 2022.

Police Minister Paul Papalia said new laws would look at strengthening gun storage and training requirements, and grant police greater powers to reject or cancel gun licences if an applicant was a convicted criminal.
“There is something like 350,000 firearms out there, a hell of a lot of them are publicly lying around, mostly unused, if not all, in a state that is very attractive for a criminal to steal,” he told Radio 6PR.
“They then get into the black market and they become a potential weapon in a crime.”
Mr Papalia reassured law-abiding, responsible licence holders that they would not be impacted by the new legislation. It was expected to take a year to draft, and would include a public consultation period.
The proposed changes come after a number of public shootings involving outlaw motorcycle gang members.
In December 2020, former Rebels boss Nick Martin was assassinated by a single sniper bullet while watching the drag races at Perth Motorplex with his family.
In the months that followed, several drive-by shootings of suburban houses have raised concerns for public safety including a 2021 incident when bikie Dayne Brajkovich’s Ascot home was targeted.
A WA Law Reform Commission report, tabled in Parliament in 2016, recommended the state’s firearms legislation should be redrafted “from the ground up” with the primary principle to ensure public safety, making firearm possession a privilege.
It followed then Prime Minister John Howard passing the 1996 National Firearms Agreement after 35 people were killed in the Port Arthur mass shooting in Tasmania.
The agreement included a commitment by each state to adopt a consistent set of firearm policies, however WA did not adopt some requirements including completing training before being eligible to own a firearm.
The University of Sydney 2020 review of gun possession found the number of Australians who possess a firearm licence decreased from 6.52 per cent before the Port Arthur massacre to 3.41 per cent in 2020.
However, while the number of licensees had deceased by 48 per cent, the number of guns in the country had increased, with each licence holder owning an average of four guns.
Around 868,000 Australians hold a gun licence.
