After finding victims, then police have yet to identify the victims publicly. The bodies of four children and one adult were discovered inside the home and two adults were found dead outside.

Australia's gun laws are widely acclaimed as a success, with supporters including former United States president Barack Obama saying Australia has not had a single mass shooting since they were implemented.

"We have been lucky that all forms of gun-related deaths have reduced dramatically since we took that step of having less guns", Glynn Greensmith, an expert on mass shooting incidents, told ABC.

Farmers are allowed to own guns under Australian law due to a legitimate need to use them to kill feral pests and predators or sick or injured livestock.
