    Backstory

    Creekside firing range is arguably the best range in the state of Georgia. Apparently the Bartow County Board of Commisioners are looking to shut it and several other ranges down due to a few unhappy neighbors. The commission had a meeting last night, Georgia Carry.org sends out an email asking for support during the meeting. Hundreds of people show up to support Creekside, etc. The commission makes the recommendation to not pass the amendment. Looney anti's show up, hilarity ensues. The same night Creekside is vandalized.

    Here is a brief description of the amendment. They are trying to contriol hours of operation, how many people shoot at one time, the rate of fire that can be shot. They are also trying to change the acreage that you must have, lengths from the property line, madated bullet traps to their specs, and the big one is that no personal protection, law enforcement training, or special tactical shooting skills.

    Now their recommendation goes before Bartow County's Sole Commissioner Clarence Brown. He has the ability to ignore the recommendation and enact the zoning ordinance. Sole Commissioner Clarence Brown will be holding a hearing THIS Wednesday (tomorrow) at 10AM at 135 West Cherokee Avenue Cartersville, Ga. 30120. If you can not attend the hearing, please take a little bit of time to contact Sole Commissioner Clarence Brown and express your support for the Bartow County ranges and what they personally mean to you.
    Sole Commissioner Clarence Brown's office number is 770-387-5030 and his fax 770-387-5023.
    As always, make sure to put extra effort into making your contact with Commissioner Brown polite and reasoned.
    Monday night's meeting was packed. People were lined up 2 deep along the walls, 4 deep in the back, and still there were folks in the hallway that wanted in. 90% were pro-Liberty.
    The opposition played up the noise aspect of the dispute. A couple of speakers mentioned fearing that their kids would be hit by a stray bullet. Predominately it was typical Million Mom Marcher ranting, including one lady who screamed in disgust at so many gun owners attending the meeting.
    The good guys mentioned that the range is a safe place to shoot, offers opportunities for training unavailable elswhere, enhances public safety by training LEO/Mil and GFL's, is a safe alternative to private property ranges, is good for the economy, and is wholesome fun for families. Range owner Joe Harris reinforced the point that he has complied with and went beyond every rule that the County has. Joe Harris, Creekside, and other range owners indicated that upon passage of the ordinance, they would have to shut down as the cost of compliance is not achievable.
    In closing the meeting, the Chairman complemented the crowd on our good Behavior (that made a positive impression). Then rest of the commission tried to prove that they weren't truly anti-gun .... "I own a gun" ... "I'm a member of the NRA", etc.
    All in all, a successful day. Now for the next step, please contact Commissioner Brown in support of the ranges of Bartow County.
    It is very encouraging to see what a difference can be made when many people gather together for a cause, but this struggle in Bartow County is not yet over.
    Here is a news article about the meeting. From the article:
    The unanimous vote came after a public hearing that lasted almost two hours in front of a standing-room-only crowd that spilled out from the hearing room into the hall.

    Would have been fucking fantastic if someone had been working late at the range and shot some trespassers.

    Do they realize how bad vandalism makes their cause (or any cause for that matter) look?
    And I like how they really show how serious they are by writing "u" instead of "you". Now we know we're dealing with some real intelligent folks!

    Reminds me of this crazy bitch that lived down the road (well over a mile and a half) from the Boy Scout camp I used to work at in New Hampshire. There were dozens of houses closer to the camp than her that never complained once, but this bitch would call the police at least twice a week complaining about the noise from the shotgun and rifle ranges. We actually became good friends with the police cheif in town, who would come to camp every friday for the BBQ chicken lunch, and he brought his full auto M4 to the ranges one day. I believe she called to complain about that too.

    In real life that would be awesome. But in the political world, it would just probably convince the commissioner that it's simply too dangerous to have around.
