Sounds like that area would be a great place for the City of Richmond to build a new Jail.

This can be stopped, since they have the 3 tea-hearts occupying the top spots in State Government.
I say appeal to your leaders, surely you should get something in return for your vote besides a lot of hot air and a empty cup of TEA.

Yet another deranged spew from nothead.

Not everyone is a gay "Teabagger" like you nothead that believes in and lives a degenerate "alternate life style".

Hey, since you claim to be a “top senior adviser” to the governor, why don’t you help these people?

The state police now own the land and there is little that can be done to stop the range. They do not need the approval of the residents, or cowardly lying idiots like you.

Have residents of Powhatan thought that the increase in officers traveling to and from the area might help lower the crime that is committed?????

My family fought a shooting range in our area. The community support against the range was incredible. We were concerned about the noise, traffic, property values... Politics as usual - the range was approved.

I would have thought that anyone crazy enough to live that close to a Maximum Security Prison chucked full of convicted murderers and rapists would appreciate having more police officers around.

Guess not.

The General Assembly approved it - a year ago. So why is anyone surprised by this? It seems not many people took the time or trouble to let their state senator or delegates know they didn't want this. And those delegates and senator didn't make enough effort to keep their constituents informed. Now in the last hour everyone cries foul. Pay attention to what your elected representatives are doing, and tell them what you expect.

Save the tax money by doing away with the range & more importantly, the Virginia State Police. Over paid meter maids in blue & gray cars that provide no police protection to the general population. They only increase revenue by issuing chicken *%it tickets. Their Bureau of Criminal Investigation is poorly trained in all aspects of criminal investigation. Give the tax money saved from elimination of these over paid meter maids to our local jurisdictions. Your real police protection comes from these Deputies and Police Departments dedicated to protecting the tax payers.

Have you always been an idiot or is it just because you are in DC?

Police and Sheriffs do not normally patrol the interstate highways, and if they were pulled out of the cities and counties to do that there would be even less protection as you mentioned.

Sounds to me that you have a heavy foot and have been caught a time or two.

To quote you, NO!!!!!!

For the most overpaid and under worked percentage of tax money wasted, I give you the Virginia State Police. Monkeys can run radar but not everyone can take a criminal case, develop a suspect, and bring it to trial. I refrain from the name calling because everyone has a right to voice their opinion. I respect your comment and don't feel the need to call you or anyone else names.

Set a range up in Short Pump, surely they won't object since they always support law enforcement.

Not the post anyone would expect from someone who has claimed to work in "law enforcement" nothead.

Probably just another of your lies like when you claimed to be a "top senior adviser" to the governor.

Credibility is something that you have none of!
