And if we had concealed carry laws and people could own firearms and train with them and be educated on the laws behind firearms many of these issues wouldn’t be a problem

And if they got the guns from people it would end up with someone being hurt. Or killed

WIND FORECAST

The Approaching front is going to pack a decent punch in the way of wind. Bom has said Severe weather warnings may be in place later in the week.

Below thanks to earth.nullschool.net is the wind forecast for Thursday at 11.00 pm sitting around the 77kmh mark but we can expect gusts above this!

As the front moves inland these winds will ease but we would expect decent gusts to around the 60kmh through the wheatbelt.

Please make sure all loose items in your yards are tidied up and trampolines tied down.
