Re "New shooting range startles neighbors" (Page B1, Aug. 31): Marcos Breton's article on the Sacramento Gun Club's indoor range- to be located on Routier Road in Rancho Cordova- was slanted with the intent to feed unsubstantiated fears to those opposed to and/or afraid of guns. After reading the article, one would be lead to believe people would go to the range and shoot guns in every direction, placing everyone- including children- in constant danger. It's an indoor range. What's the problem?

Local gun clubs such as Coon Creek Trap and Skeet, Auburn Trap Club, Lincoln Shooting Sports Center, Sacramento Valley Shooting Center, The Gun Range and the Cordova Shooting Center offer gun safety classes. The reality is most gun owners are responsible people that make sure their guns are used in a safe manner, and kept secure from unauthorized use.
