We've come a long way, Baby!
(Uh ... no, we haven't.)
North Carolina Gun Range Goes Up In Flames In Obvious Case Of Arson:
USA – -(Ammoland.com)- Early Monday morning, a North Carolina gun range, Triad Active Shooters Klub (TASK), outside Greensboro/Winston Salem North Carolina lost multiple structures and covered firing ports in an apparent case of sophisticated and deliberate arson carried out by numerous unknown perpetrators.This was not a mere act of vandalism; it was an attempt to deprive a group of law-abiding Americans their constitutional rights. No, it wasn't really a home, a business or a church.
But for people who embrace and practice their right to Keep and Bear Arms, a shooting range has similar elements.
A shooting range is a business, in the sense that people pay money to build and operate it.
It's not a residence, but for People of The Gun, a shooting range is where they go to relax and enjoy their hobby, to meet with friends and people of a like mind.
And although it would be a stretch of the imagination to call a shooting range a Church, the members of a gun club celebrate their Constitutional Rights with the reasonable expectation that it will be respected by sane citizens ... even if non-members don't agree with their practices or their philosophy.
This is AMERICA, people!
Are marksmen, hunters, defenders of hearth and home to be the target (excuse the irony) of hateful extremists?
A bit of advice: Tread softly on the toes of Men With Guns.
And remember ... they fired first.
