  1. I’m shocked and IMPRESSED Carroll Co. had a public gun range. I hope they are really remodeling it and not closing it because the anti-gun groups are pressuring the county officials.

    Do you think the liberal county council and county executive would entertain HoCo having a public gun range?

    Our Howard Co delegation in Annapolis is more interested in confiscating ALL guns. Particularly, Atterbury.
