Stop the Backyard shooting ranges in Golden Gate Estates before someone gets killed!

I have been a resident of Golden Gate Estates area in Naples for fifteen years. I am raising a soon to be teenager, who is afraid to play in her own back yard due to a neighbor that has a backyard shooting range. Two years ago a teenager was shot by a stray bullet while inside her own home. The bullet came from a neighbor shooting in his back yard. More recently, another woman injured by someone target shooting in his yard. I just read today in the news a convicted felon was arrested for shooting into a home accidentally. He wasn't even supposed to own a gun! I am all for 2nd Ammendment rights but the law needs to be changed that allows homeowners to have these shooting ranges on a 1 acre property. This does not allow enough distance between properties for shooting rifles or handguns. Please make a change!
