    'Parents take aim at proposed gun range near elementary school

    A Connecticut town is caught up in a heated debated over whether a proposed gun range should be built just hundreds of feet from a local elementary school.

    "I'd say total insanity. A gun range should not be put next to a school, period. Put it on the outskirts of Waterbury, or somewhere else," community activist Lisa Lessard said in a video posted by NBC Connecticut.

    Proponents of the development say the gun range and accompanying gun store would post no actual risk to young students next door at the Sprague Elementary School in Waterbury, Connecticut.

    Nonetheless, the local Board of Education sued the city last summer after it approved zoning for the gun range...'

    Wonderful media coverage ain't it???

    Since the link posted does not work, you can Click Here to get the full story.

    They do not even bother to specify if it is an indoor range, which I suspect it is, or an outdoor range. And note that parents are afraid of "the lead from the gun shells". So we can throw in the "Lead Bogey Man" to raise the fear of the uninformed readers so we can influence the outcome. (Personally I would have more fears about the lead that is in the bullets. not the shells.) Or is this just another example of the eastern liberal "NIMBY" mentality?

    Oh yes, here is yet another indication of the quality of the thought processes people in charge of public education are (not) using!

    Oh and by the way for the number of posts that the original poster puts up, you might think that she would learn to check to see if links she posts even work!

    Appose? Can't find that word in my dictionary. Must be the Dumbass spelling for "oppose".

    Should be decent weather for the Delaware State Shoot this coming weekend.

    Its to bad the parents weren't as concerned as to the c$$p being fed their kids by the shovel full in the classroom versus their fear of a business.

    Nice going skeety, you managed to get one of your anti gun rants posted on the shooting related section, under the guise of a shooting related topic.

    Like this story never happened before.
