Play on emotions is disingenuous

Re "Neighbors object to gun range" (Page B1, Marcos Breton, Aug 31): I must say, I am very disappointed in the opinion piece by Mr. Breton. The columnist attempts to link shooting ranges with atrocities committed by criminals, without citing any evidence for the accusation whatsoever. He implies that children within the vicinity of a shooting range are inherently unsafe, once again despite a total lack of evidence to support his implication. He fails to note the presence of multiple shooting ranges in county urban areas with excellent safety records. He declines to mention the very strict regulations already governing these shooting ranges. I would invite Mr. Breton, and any other reader, to go and sit outside any of our local ranges. Tell me about all the noise you hear and criminal activity you see.....because all I ever see are respectable people safely exercising their second amendment right to keep and bear arms. No noise, no fuss. -- Brian Bainter, Elk Grove
