So all the Director needs to do is claim there is a problem and the permit can be revoked.DCD may immediately suspend or revoke an operating permit upon the Director's finding that the permit's terms have been violated or that any participant, spectator, neighboring property or member of the public has been injured or endangered as a result of range design, operation or management of shooting activities.
Some ranges train their members instead of babysitting them. The KRRC requires a training course before using the range unsupervised.All shooting ranges shall have at least one safety officer on duty at all times shooting activities occur
In other words, a person can move in close to the range, then complain about the noise. That is what is happening now. It was only last year that the KRRC learned they were able to install noise abatement devices and not run afoul of RCW 9.41.250 which prohibits the use of any device which suppresses the noise of a firearm. Prior to the AG's informal opinion on the matter, Russ Hauge was of the opinion that use of a shooting enclosure would be illegal.Each shooting area shall be designed, operated and maintained to minimize the sound level of noise produced by the shooting range which can be heard outside the range property. The operating permit may be conditioned upon the range adopting and following procedures or a plan to mitigate or reduce measurable sound levels which can be heard in populated areas outside of the range property;
Start restricting one type of firearm, and others will follow.Ranges shall not allow the use of exploding targets, the use of cannons or the storage of explosives, without issuance of a temporary use permit; and
In WA the sun sets at about 4:20 pm in December. So this allows us to shoot from 9-5. While this is ok to accommodate most people, there is no good reason for it. People moved close to the range knowing it was there.Shooting ranges may allow shooting only between the hours of 9 a.m. and the earlier of 8 p.m. or one half-hour after sunset,
Sure all you need is really deep pockets and other public employees that are not in his pocket, no problem there right?Well if he is distorting claims,then you need to go after him.He isn't above the law.
If he is,then you should be able to show all the documents necessary to thwart his claims and snuff this fight.
Sue him for harassment,maybe
