Interesting article.

From the 'sounds' of things, there are a few people whom exhibit irresponsible behavior making things difficult for everyone else.

If I were to hazard a decision, I wouldn't deed the land. Rather, I'd place the administration of the land in private hands such that the public would have to pay a user fee to be determined by both the county and whatever private organization might arrive at, such as defray the costs of administration and operation.

The problems as I perceive them, are that the counties aren't willing to accept the responsibility of ensuring safe operation, and ~at least~ collecting a user fee from anyone desiring to use the ranges, and have established guidelines ensuring that reasonable safety standards are adhered to.

I will say the following from my personal experiences here in Washington: Most of trouble-makers are local yahoos, and NOT people from remote locations.

Sometimes you've just got to take the bull by the horns when the nose ring becomes ineffective.

Once again: If the counties can't or won't take the responsibility which is rightfully their own, then they should at the very least allow private administration of those ranges.

And that would include allowing the fencing and the building of whatever facilities the private organization requests, with access to private facilities governed by the private group's bylaws, but not limiting access to the range itself to just the members.

Additionally, if the private organization is vetted to accept responsibility for the care and operation of the range, the counties should agree to sharing the expenses of operating of the range itself by mandating the aforesaid range fees, and for defraying the costs of having a certified range officer present at all times the range is in operation.
