I am sure that I am not the only one bothered by the moron who shoots a gun on the county side of Lake Benson? Are there no noise ordinances? I have contacted the Garner Police several times but the most recent call left me extremely frustrated. I was told that it was "mullet season" whatever that is?(Season of the bad haircut?) and that there was nothing I could do about it. Well, are there not nuisance laws? And BANG! BANG! all afternoon and into the dark hours on the only day that most people have off, is nuisance in my opinion. Elmer Fudd needs to learn to respect other people's rights. I'd like to show him where to put that gun. Furthermore, there are families with children at Lake Benson Park. Does someone have to get shot before anything can be done about this?!

Obviously nothing has been done to stop the gunshots! I have been living here since 2010 and am so frustrated with this problem! It's almost 7PM and the gunshots are still going off! What kind of town is this?!!! What hunting season allows hunting after dark? Is someone just out shootig for the heck of it?!!!

Nobody is hunting. A man and his family/friends are shooting on his own private land. No laws are being broken and from talking to some locals that know him, it's not going to quit anytime soon. I live on Lake Benson and here it all the time. They even shoot a .50 cal from time to time and it will rattle the glass. But guess what? Completely legal and it will continue to be completely legal.
