Indoor range ruckus

It is totally ridiculous for the Fort Worth ISD to spend time and money opposing an “indoor” gun range.

Their attorney saying stray bullets would be “zipping around” is ludicrous. How could he even say that with a straight face? This is an indoor range with a concrete-walled room where the shooting will take place. Also, referring to a stray bullet incident in Garland in 2010, that was an outdoor range.

The district’s argument is so weak it should be a reflection on the boards’ priority. They are wasting time on this flimsy action against a private venture that will add to the tax base and increase employment in our city.
