The firing range was there before you complaining yuppies moved in. Go back to the big city where you belong, and you can be complain about the shooting going on around you (gang related)

"There have always been people living in that area, but the 'blue-collared' workers never complained," said Laverdure. "Now we have doctors, lawyers and engineers moving into the area and complaining. We had just as many people living up there before, but it wasn't a problem, but these people are just ignorant."

Gee, I wonder how these doctors, lawyers and engineers feel about being called ignorant. And what a slam to "blue-collared workers," who he claims are gun crazy and love the sound of gun fire.

I think the only one who is ignorant here is Laverdure. Plus, don't be stupid and piss of lawyers. They will sue you.

Hey Lisa if you keep an eye on your kids you won't have to worry about them roaming onto the firing range. Maybe you should stop bi^&*(% and take some responsibility and watch your children. It's not like any "average Joe" can go out there these people have to be licensed gun owners....

Hey Shakey,,,,don't quote someone then change thier words. It shows your ignorance. And by the way, Websters defines ignorance as a lack of knowledge. In this case Cheif Laverdure is spot on. The Dr's, lawyers, and others that have moved in are ignorant in the matters of firearms. Lisa even says "I don't know what happens when bullets hit water or how far they travel,,,""I know there are places for gun ranges and this isn't it" Really? It WAS it since 1923. You think just because YOU moved in they should move out? Plus Shakey, I don't see where the Cheif called blue collar workers "gun crazy" people. Could you point that out to me?
The gun range was there before you bought your house. If you didn't check on the neighborhood, and schools, and tax rate, and other things before you bought your house, you are IGNORANT!!!!

The gun range was there LONG before you were. Check out the locale BEFORE you buy. Don't try to change the neighborhood to your standards AFTER you nmove there! Sorta like marrying someone then expecting them to change to fit your idea of how they should act. If you don't like it, MOVE !!

The Dr's and lawyers knew about the firing range before they moved there. Or are they just dumb and didn't check out the location? I will give them the benefit and say no. But they just think they can throw their money at the right people and get what ever they want! Bottom line the firing range was there before the people who are complianing were born and there it should stay! Don't like it move.

This place has been used as a firing range since the 1920s?Why all the uproar now.It seems any fun recreation is complained about everywhere nowadays.Gun shooting,atv,dirtbikes,hunting ,r.c.airplanes.People moved to these rural places so they could do these recreational hobbies with out being bothered by the cityslickers,the same ones complaining about the cannons on the constitution.You guys are wasting tax $$$ on the most petty arguements,get a life and a gun,you will never know when youre gonna need it .

Lancaster has been invaded by the "upscale" people, so it comes as no surprise to see this action. Expect more of this to occur.

The firing range is across the pond. The kids cant roam across the pond, but stray bullets can!!! How is she a bad parent for being concerned about her children? Other people have been talking about ignorance, i think your comment was a pretty good example. Oh, and licensed gun owners can make mistakes too....

Here's a tip. Don't build your house nor buy a house that is directly behind a shooting range. Especially if that gun range was there long before the houses were.
