One safety measure they haven't tried yet is a big padlock on the front door. I'll bet that would stop the suicides.
A Los Angeles man shot and killed himself at the Firing-Line indoor shooting range in Burbank, police said Friday.
It was at least the third suicide at the range in the last few years.
Last year, Stephen Daniels, 64, of Burbank shot himself in the head at the firing range. Daniels’ death came about a year after a 25-year-old Glendale man rented a handgun and shot himself in the head.
The firing range has instituted an assortment of safety measures in response to the incident, officials said.
I'm sure the pro-gun crowd can live with the percentages, the number of suicides divided by the total number of customers is probably low enough. What do you think? Is this acceptable?
On the site of the shooting range I saw an interesting thing.
Is that what they meant by "instituted an assortment of safety measures in response to the incident?"
FOR SAFETY REASONS!!
If you bring your own ammunition...
It must be Full Metal Jacket (FMJ, TMJ, CMJ) or completely lead.
Hollow point, steel core, or soft point/semi-jacketed bullets are NOT allowed.
Wolf Brand ammunition is NOT allowed
What's your opinion? What "safety measures" can a shooting range implement anyway that will prevent folks from blowing their brains out?
