Trailltrader: Considering all the other laws, this one is a "no brainer". The state has abused its position by forcing everyone and anyone to have permits for anything- every year, we read about how some kid in grade school gets their lemonade stand shut down because they didn't have a business license.Now think on this, hard: if you were a bad guy and you heard gunshots what are the odd's of you doing a robbery in that neighborhood? Knowing if you pulled any shiat you'd be leaking red stuff?Provided the range is built with common sense- that is, berms to the front, left and right, in such a way as to absorb the impact of bullets- where's the harm?
Watubi: You don't need to ban it, just require high liability insurance. I'm sure the monthly costs of this would make most people think twice about building one.

duffblue: I have a firing range in my backyard. It's called the woods. Nothing like walking out onto your back porch in your boxers and firing high-powered weaponry
TinyFist: Look, if you're going to start mowing your lawn at 7 a.m. on a Saturday, I don't see why I can't practice with my new IR scope at 11 p.m.
Tom_Slick: I enjoy shooting, I own guns, I think this is nuts./backyard shooting range guy STFU you are not helping.
Keys dude: <<< I don't think Florida is more Gun-ho than, say, Texas. We don't have open carry. >>>We had open carry when Martinez was governor. As for this guy, I know him. He pitched me on writing a story about his diet products. Think I gave him two paragraphs.

ClavellBCMI: I grew up in VERY Northern Wisconsin, and back in my teenage years, I used to, quite regularly, bust a few caps in my backyard (I think I may have killed one of the maple trees in my backyard using it as the backstop for my target shooting), with neighbors on both sides within 100 ft... and not a thing was said about it, even when I would burn through 200 rounds of ammo on a Saturday morning.
Cerebral Ballsy: Was it a blood-loss diet?
Calmamity: Making suppressors easy and cheap to get would help this problem.
Keys dude: Glass Ninja, Marathon checking in here. If you've been around for a few years, you might have a hint of who I am :)
