At the range today I was informed that the AK Senate cut funding for the three State operated ranges from the annual budget. Apparently the State House approved the funding but the Senate cut it out. According to the folks at the range, if it remains un-funded the three state ranges will shut their doors July 1st.
As someone new to shooting, this is very concerning to me, as it should be to all us. (i.e. I need the practice.) Thought you all would be interested in this. I am writing my legislators and Ms Palin next.
