Suffolk County Trap & Skeet Range In New York Is In Jeopardy!

Tuesday, April 25, 2006


Please Attend Brookhaven Town Board Meeting Tuesday, May 2 and Tuesday, May 16!   

The Suffolk County Trap & Skeet Range is in jeopardy of being closed by the persistence and pressure of anti-gun members of the Brookhaven Town Board.

 

It is critical to show up in large numbers at the next two Brookhaven Town meetings and make strong positive arguments for reopening the range.  The next two meetings of the Brookhaven Town Board are:

 

Tuesday, May 2 and Tuesday, May 16

One Independence Hill

Farmingville, NY 11738.

 

If you are unable to attend the meetings, please contact
Town Supervisor Brian X. Foley at the above address or via phone at
(631) 451-9100 and fax (631) 451-6677.

 

You should plan to arrive by 5:00 p.m. and sign-up to speak on the Suffolk County Trap & Skeet Range issue.  You simply need to state your name and that you are a supporter of reopening the Suffolk County Trap & Skeet Range as soon as possible.

 

Despite anti-gun board members claims, there has never been any lead contamination of the water supply, as proven by the Suffolk County Public Health Department and external reports that the County spent thousands of dollars to compile. 

 

This range has had the least possible impact of all the possible uses on this land.  Any use of public property has an impact on the land, even a park with only a few facilities.  To go so far as to reclaim this land, the taxpayers of the county, including all residents of Brookhaven, would be saddled with a $7 million tax burden. 

 

This range is a valuable revenue raising resource for the area as many outsiders come from across the region to partake in shooting sports.  There are no such facilities in Nassau County or in New York City. 

 

The noise issue is, for all intents and purposes, nonexistent because when a garbage truck, delivery truck, school bus, noisy automobile, leaf blower, or a lawn mower is used, it is the same level and duration of any noise coming from the range.  In addition, the range has been in operation for over fifty years, long before any houses were near and long before Brookhaven passed a noise standard. 

 

In over fifty years of operation not a single accident has occurred on this facility.  Juniors and others learning the safe and responsible handling of firearms use the Suffolk County Trap & Skeet Range.  If the range is closed, it leaves those interested in understanding the proper, safe, and responsible usage of firearms no place to go. 

 

Do Not Forget to Attend these Meetings and
Help Protect the Suffolk County Trap & Skeet Range!

Please forward this to fellow firearm owners!
