Bill 1508 recently had a hearing in the House Judiciary committee. HB 1508 - 2011-12
This bill will protect rifle ranges mainly by stopping county governments from enacting new laws which can threaten existing rifle ranges.
I was at the hearing and had the opportunity to speak to the committee. The number of bill supporters far exceeded those at the hearing that are against it. I felt that the anti people came off at whiny, especially the guy who claimed he could feel the gunfire concussion from 1-2/3 miles away.
There is a chance that the part of the bill that subjects established shooting areas to only those laws that on the books at the time the range was established will be taken out as there were no laws regulating shooting areas in the 1920's.
