  1. I cant believe the number of firearms offences being uncovered in Byron Bay.

    Seems almost every week the Police arrest persons on firearms charges.

    Of course, in this instance there is no direct reference in your article to any charge referring specifically to the Delphi depicted in the article.

    Could you confirm the rifle shown in your articles is actually representative of one or more sized by the Police.
