Haha yea guns are banned and you need a license. Gosh I wish we had guns here though, a shovel through rhe snakes head does the jobMiss @Hudson and me,
I don't know what the laws are like in New South Wales, Australia, but where I reside in rural western Arkansas, USA, if I see a snake I don't like, a 22 pistol or rifle will make quick work. In case gun ownership there is restricted, you could always get a dog that hates snakes and hunts them down.
