Chris Pattison started this petition to Carson city

The Carson City shooting range has been closed down. The reason stated is that three individuals that work at the landfill have complained about ricochets and stray rounds entering the landfill. Rounds have been found at the top of the hill and over the years some have rolled to the other side. Never in over 45 years has anyone ever been hit or injured at the landfill. Now the Carson rifle and pistol club say that you have to be insured for a million dollars, take a RSO (range safety officer) course and be a business to reserve the bays. Large caliber rifles are also no longer allowed. Even though a 50 bmg round was the closest found at the range and a 45acp was the farthest and found on the landfills side of the hill. You will also no longer be able to shoot full autos even though entire businesses depend on shooting them at the range and the ammunition purchases contribute to tax revenue for the city. Tens of thousands of dollars are going to be given to the club to improve the range. Even though in 2000 the club was given money for development and it disappeared. It is our hope to reopen the range to normal operations with none of these restrictions. If workers at the landfill are scared for no reason then they should find other employment. The range has been a place that we all have used for generations with never an issue. Why criminalize law abiding citizens? Why make rules that are unjustified? This is our public range and it should stay the way it has been for generations! Sign this petition to reopen the range and return it to normal operations.
