My commnets: Just like people who buy property and move in, next to an established Airport (military or civilian), then complain that the airplanes make too much noise....kind of burns my britches if you know what I mean..(reminds me of all those jokes about Progressives moving from CA to OR and WA and then insisting that the way they want things should be!)...good video at the link (below).
.....Outside city limits in Island County you can shoot just about anywhere, anytime. The same goes for hunting. It’s a way of life not everyone in this increasingly populated county is comfortable with.
“You do think about once in a while,” said Ken Webb, a relative newcomer to Whidbey Island after five years.
Like many here, Webb prefers gardening to guns. The shots he hears all the time are a little unnerving for his family.
“They're out here playing frisbee on my lawn. A stray bullet, that definitely concerns me,” he said.
Sweeping changes to gun laws are now being considered by county commissioners. The issue started with a single gun owner who was shooting in his backyard. The property was deemed to be safe for shooting by sheriff’s deputies. Nevertheless, neighbors complained.
..... Gun owners fear the original proposal by county commissioners is so broad it could severely restrict hunting, forbid gun owners from shooting on their own land and close long established gun clubs. All it would take is a majority of neighbors to complain to the council.
Ranges like the Holmes harbor Rod & Gun Club near Langley, which has been in business for nearly 80 years, would then have to defend their right to operate.
