    GUN-LOVERS DE-LITTER SHOOTING AREA

    Tyler Visser of Bellingham wrote to tell me about a volunteer cleanup operation held May 15 at the North Fork gravel pit just east of Deming.

    Members of opencarry.org, a Second Amendment group, picked up trash and targets at the local shooting area. They coordinated the effort with the state Department of Natural Resources and Project Wilderness from Bend, Ore.

    There were a few weekend shooters at the pit when the volunteers arrived, and Tyler says they pitched in to help with the cleanup.

    Once the work was done, Tyler says, "We barbequed burgers and had a good time chatting with others who share similar interests. At the end of the day, what else is a Second Amendment group to do but blow off a few rounds. We managed to find all our targets and add them to the growing pile."

    More than 15 volunteers gathered trash, including wood targets, dish soap containers, beer and soda cans, the transaxle from a car, propane cans, microwaves, a fire extinguisher and three dead chickens.

    "We piled it all up, loaded up some trucks, and headed to the dump," Tyler wrote.

    He and his wife, Martha, split the dump costs with the state.

    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)
