"The county would also spend $10 million during the upcoming fiscal year on an indoor firing range building with classroom space for law enforcement training."

Until the voting regs are changed and only those who PAY property taxes can vote locally, then the lunacy will continue. We're going to get to the point where people are going to be evicted from their homes because they can't afford their taxes. The consequences of that won't be pretty. I have no issues with someone shooting tax officials or any cop who is there to evict them from their home. None.

Tax the million dollar non-profits.
