Gun club spokesperson Bill Newton said the club is “dumbfounded” by the decision, since the club complied with everything the county has asked. The club recently improved safety measures on the range by installing cameras and passcards, and implemented a noise monitoring system. “We’d gone to incredible lengths and spent an awful lot of money to stay on top of that,” Newton said. The board said while “the risk of a stray bullet is low, the impact of that risk is high.” The range, which has operated in Parkland County since 1972, has 30 days to take the appeal board to court over the decision. Either way, it will likely have to shut down in mid-November when its existing development permit expires. “We have over 900 members that now have to find another legal way to enjoy our sport,” said Newton.
