It's like getting your drivers license ran for getting an oil change. A lot of people with warrants stay at hotels, maybe their info should be ran. Same thing with patients being seen in the emergency departments. Heck....let's just scan our ID cards at the front door of every place we go. Except to vote of course.
If they want to do that, make it a members only club. Make the people provide a clean background check prior to allowing them to join.

Weather you know it or not this goes on in most places.
Brew City AKA Badger got raked over by the City and setup a few times they them Black mail them into doing their dirty work.
I have been there and will go there again I hope some day the can return to selling fire arms.
I do have a problem with the Police doing unwarranted back round checks on me or anyone else it is wrong and could come back to haunt you in ways you never saw coming.
brew City is and example of what happens when you have LE that makes up the law and out come as they want it to be.
I thought it was Illegal to use the database to run anybody unless they had been stopped and were being investigated in an official police capacity.Running Random names of people visiting a shooting range IMHO could violate their 4th amendment rights.What next Convenience stores reporting everybody that buys beer from the cooler

I called the West Milwaukee police Chief 30 minutes ago. While he was polite he made it clear he is the law and will do what ever he wants and No one can stop him.
His words were the only people that would be concerned are gun nuts. If the checks run us all off the better for him. Now he used many more words to say this but he was clear on where he stood. We are the enemy and he is the cure.
He tried to say they keep no records but I find that hard to except.
Only you know what is right for you if you feel you should speak with him. My next call will be the Wisconsin DOJ

If he is using a state crime information database for an "unofficial" function, which it appears that he is...then he can be prosecuted,fined,fired or all of the above.
Put it terms that he can understand.

Maker of cool things to shoot
I've personally never step foot on a civilian range, so I don't see what the big deal is.
I was at a inside firing range in Greensboro , NC just to check it out and I noticed that everyone that came in to shoot that their name and address was wrote in a log book laying out on a desk for all to see. I don't like my address out like that for any to see so I left. Makes for easy pickings for the right thief also to get gun owners addresses..just saying..

well, i don't live down there anymore i only shot at brew city a couple times. now i shoot at van dyne gun club. it's members only, as soon as we buy a house (in the country) i will be shooting in my back yard. then i will never have to go to a range again. i personally hate them. never know who is safe and who is a rube that might accidentally shoot you.
oh, and there have been two suicides at this place when it was badger gun. kinda puts a bad taste in my mouth.
Second suicide in a week occurs at Badger Guns - JSOnline
