HOUSE BILL AIMS TO BOOST FUNDING FOR SHOOTING RANGES . . . U.S. Rep. Betsy Markey, D-Colo., has introduced legislation aimed at increasing federal funding for public shooting ranges. H.R. 3781 is the House companion bill to the Senate's S. 1702. The bill would amend the Pittman-Robertson Wildlife Restoration Act to allow states to allocate increased funding for the construction and maintenance of public shooting facilities.

U.S. Rep. Betsy Markey, D-Colo.

Is that a typo Maltzie? A Democrat that is pushing a pro-gun bill? :shock: :shock: Is this bizzaro world?

Head spinning...world tilting...planets gravity pulling too hard...blacking out....

I just don't know what to do with this. There has to be something sinister behind it.

You can find it on thomas.loc.gov

Co-sponsors of Mike Coffman (R-CO), Walter Minnick (D-ID), and Harry Teague (D-NM). Here's the purpose as found in the bill:
" (a) Findings- Congress finds that--

(1) the use of firearms for target practice and marksmanship training activities on Federal land is allowed, except to the extent specific portions of that land have been closed to those activities;

(2) in recent years preceding the date of enactment of this Act, portions of Federal land have been closed to target practice and marksmanship training for many reasons;

(3) the availability of public target ranges on non-Federal land has been declining for a variety of reasons, including continued population growth and development near former ranges;

(4) providing opportunities for target practice and marksmanship training at public target ranges on Federal and non-Federal land can help--

(A) to promote enjoyment of shooting, recreational, and hunting activities; and

(B) to ensure safe and convenient locations for those activities;

(5) Federal law in effect on the date of enactment of this Act, including the Pittman-Robertson Wildlife Restoration Act (16 U.S.C. 669 et seq.), provides Federal support for construction and expansion of public target ranges by making available to States funds that can be used for construction, operation, and maintenance of public target ranges; and

(6) it is in the public interest to provide increased Federal support to facilitate the construction or expansion of public target ranges.

(b) Purpose- The purpose of this Act is to facilitate the construction and expansion of public target ranges, including ranges on Federal land managed by the Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management."

She's desparate to cover her record of being an Oba Mao lapdog. She is in grave danger of being a one-termer, as this is a mostly conservative area. This is purely [email protected] politics. Not that it isn't a great proposal, but she is as phony as a 3 dollar bill. She is not fooling anyone in her district. We've been watching her. Her top 10 donors are all from out of state, and out of their minds, too.
