Shooting range in question
Monday, September 08, 2008
James Bunn set up a firing range behind his gun business on Ward Boulevard based on rules for county property. The 7-acre heavily wooded area behind Creekside Firearms has a downward slope that drops about four or five feet below the ground level of Ward Boulevard. The firing area is about 300 feet from Wilson Woods, a residential apartment area where owners have voiced concern for shooting in the area. Bunn shoots guns at his property, ranging from .22-caliber pistols to .35-caliber and .45-caliber handguns. He also started using noise suppressors, especially for concealed carry handgun training he does on the property. Bunn’s shooting activity, which started in November 2006, has been criticized by some residents, primarily the owners of Wilson Woods. Owner Steve Powell has said that the shooting range has scared off potential renters and upset people already living in the neighborhood.The city of Wilson, which prohibits the discharge of a firearm in city limits, allows shooting in industrial and agricultural areas of the city. But the ordinance is limited. Only a special use permit is required and no other rules apply to shooting ranges.
