Welp, it was standing room only and the dissenters were pulling stuff out of their ears. HIGHLY EMOTIONAL and PERSONALLY CHARGED. All objecting comments from the public were caveated by, “I am a supporter of the 2nd amendment but….” “I like to shoot guns but….” One man suggested 115 people per year who left the range with 15 leftover bullets would discharge them in the first creek around the corner they could find. One current El Dorado LEO publicly lambasted the idea for five minutes and another retired Sheriff stood up and said that even his own men couldn’t handle a firearm correctly, not to mention the droves who would visit the gun club . . .
He said the gun was a tool and now it would become a toy. Lots of “we can do it right as we shoot in our back 40 at the haybail, but you guys will kill everybody in the neighborhood shooting under no-blue-sky ranges with safety officers.” Pretty hypocritical. Emotion won out over logic. Vote was 5-0 NO.
