One of the groups trying to stop Snohomish County from building a shooting range near Sultan [Washington] isn’t a gun safety or environmental group; it’s a nudist club.
The multi-million dollar gun range would be a mile away from the 72-year-old Lake Bronson Club and its 200 nudist members, who say that’s too close to bare, so to speak.
Although guns themselves are not the issue, said Club president Earl Calkins:
“It would be disruptive to our members and guests to have that constant bombardment of noise. That’s not why people come to the club.”
Several shooters come by here occasionally, so I ask them: How likely is it that they’ll be able to hear what’s going on at the range at a distance of one mile? It’s fairly hilly through there, though not quite mountainous.
