BREAKING :
ACCORDING TO GUN PROHIBITIONISTS, EUROPE IS MUCH SAFER THAN THE UNITED STATES, BECAUSE EUROPE HAS STRICTER GUN CONTROL. IN FACT, THE HISTORICAL RECORD SHOWS THAT EXCESSIVE GUN CONTROL (AS IN EUROPE) IS ABOUT A HUNDRED TIMES MORE DEADLY THAN "INSUFFICIENT" GUN CONTROL (AS, SUPPOSEDLY, IN THE U.S.).

CO – TRAINING – Colorado Aims to Improve Public Access to Shooting Ranges

Like gun stores, shooting ranges in Colorado have seen an uptick in interest during the pandemic. And grants from Colorado Parks and Wildlife are helping some of these private facilities reload. Every year, the state allocates between $400,000 and $750,000 to shooting ranges across Colorado through the Shooting Range Development grant program. The funds, which mostly come from federal taxes, go to existing ranges as well as the development of new shooting ranges. A separate CPW grant process helps fund improvements at the fifteen to twenty shooting ranges on public land in Colorado. To qualify for a SRD grant, projects must demonstrate substantive public benefit, says Jim Guthrie, the grant program coordinator. In particular, the range should push access for everyone, from hunters who want to practice to families with kids who want to learn. Many shooting ranges have youth shooting education programs and competitions or offer self-defense classes, he says. “It’s a variety of cases where it’s not just club members who use the range, but they allow the general public to have access. And that really becomes important along the Front Range, because there’s limited opportunities and a lot of demand,” he says. The program has awarded almost $5 million in grants to over seventy shooting and archery ranges in Colorado since 2010; this year, CPW awarded $725,000 in SRD grants to nine. The majority of the program’s funding comes from an excise tax on hunting and archery equipment from the federal U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the rest comes from CPW license revenues.  [full article]
