    Illinois and Chicago just won't quit!

    This range is the closest to Chicago, only about 500 feet from the city limits. Located in Elmwood Park. I use to do all my shooting here. Chicago had outlawed gun ranges within the city limits in the past. I believe the SCOTUS has overturned this ban as being unconstitutional.

    I have shot there myself, and I believe the Elmwood Park police use it also. The head of OSHA is an outspoken critic of firearm ownership and so this is just another way around the law.

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    Looks like we have a few things in common. Both live in Northern KY, shot at IGW, you wouldn't happen to drink Bourbon and smoke cigars?

    Under the thumb. The establishment will always dictate things and there are many laws that let them have the ultimate power to do so for a period of time. The system only works under certain circumstances. The day somebody retains a good lawyer and sues for compensation.....things might change. Don't expect much out of the highest court in the land, and even then they don't exactly have the power to force anyone into being compliant.

    Yessir. We dine at Virgil's in your neck of the woods.

    Back to the subject, most ranges are not subject to OSHA because they have fewer than 15 employees.

    I guess that is the government's way of saying " firing range is OK,,,, as long
    as you DO NOT SHOOT IN IT."
