Niles already has an off-track betting facility at Golf Mill less than a mile from some schools and Read Morethat was being protested, too, on the same grounds that this gun range is being protested. When I worked nights, very often when I was coming home in the morning I would see people sleeping in their cars or milling around outside waiting for the facility to open. But they stayed there, they weren't wandering around the neighborhood as far as I could see and there has been no problem at the schools or at the mall. I'm pretty sure that the people who will be using the gun range won't be wandering around the neighborhood and hanging around the schools, either.

Judith - While I wouldn't be happy about a gun range opening up near my children's school I don'tRead Morebe lieve this is a safety issue. Now if it's like the old Badger Guns in Milwaukee (West Milwaukee) where a TON of legal guns were purchased and used in crimes I would be concerned. I would still have protested this like a tobacco store or payday loan shop. It's just an undesirable business that can have a negative impact on housing prices if it's not well run.
