Larry Simmons started this petition to Florida and

Interest in recreational shooting, personal & home defense is growing steadily, and gun ownership is increasing in all demographics, but especially among people of color all across the nation. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC)  is  state agency that is supported by the tax dollars of ALL Florida citizens. 

According to their website, the FWC is committed to safely supporting the needs of recreational target shooters, hunters and hunter safety students. The agency currently manages  10 shooting ranges located throughout the state. To meet THE growing demand for public shooting sports facilities. To date, there are 10 public ranges in the state of Florida, which demonstrates that the agency is thoroughly committed to providing good service to the citizens of Florida. For more details, go to:  https://myfwc.com/hunting/safety-education/shooting-ranges/

My question and greatest concern is, how many people of color have accessibility, the affordability, the opportunity to participate in recreational shooting in a friendly & inviting atmosphere, and the opportunity to enjoy facilities bought and paid for by our tax dollars. We only ask that (FWC) invite us to the table to have a discussion and take another look at building a public range at Joe Budd Wildlife Management Area in Midway, Florida.
