That range was there long before those houses were.Maybe the enviromentalists should of not let them build all those houses.The man has a right to have a business.I am sure he can sell off his property so more houses can be built.......we don't need any more buildings going up.

The gun range stays. How long has it been there?
Long before those houses. Shooting at a gun club is a worthy pastime. It is safe. Who wants the land? Another developer so he can build more oversized houses no one can pay for.

Bonnie, thank you for commenting, but you really should do your home work before making such a statement. Go to www.trapandskeet.net to read the facts and figures surrounding the the gun range.

Range existed where it stands,way before other structures got built.

Range should stay there for what it was established in the first place.

I have read all of the environmental studies on the range and the lead is NOT, I repeat NOT seeping into the groundwater. This baseless claim has been repeated over and over by the range's opponents. The 2 wells where there was an elevated reading were caused by "push wells" where the well is pushed through the soil from the surface, taking lead down with it, and testing with a high level of turbidity. Anyone who knows ANYTHING about wells, testing, or lead can see that.

It's been there a long time. Guess what the yaphank infirmary has been in the county for over 150 years. But levy is trying to get rid of it. How come no one cares about that?

I looked at those houses when they were being built they were far cheaper then other areas becuse of the range. Its the same crap as those people who bought near the expressway and airports. they bought cheap and now we must all pay to have there property values rise. If they did not like the range they should not have bought near it. PS I shhot skeet and still passed
