    Attention Clark County Shooters.

    The Parks and Recreation Department has placed three agenda items on the County Commission’s meeting agenda for December 7, 2010 starting at 9 am. There are some SERIOUS items in these agendas that will change the future operation of the Shooting Park including raising some of the public shooting fees.

    Consent Agenda item 4 is to approve a contract for the design of the archery building and sporting clays course.

    Consent Agenda item 14 is to raise some public fees at the shooting park scheduled for Clark County Board of County Commission meeting on December 7, 2010 (Tuesday starting at 9 am) and to reduce some fees for special interest groups, and includes pre-payment of fees for events.

    Action Agenda item 74 is asking the Board for directions for the future of the committee with input from unidentified “ad hoc” members. Agenda item 74 does not re-charter the advisory committee, it is asking for direction.

    The Clark County Shooting Park Citizen’s Advisory Committee makes recommendations directly to the Clark County Board of County Commissioners. It was kept separate to provide the County Commission with direct citizen input independent of the park department and provide long term protection of the range. This was directly a result of what has happened in other counties when the parks director/management became anti-gun and deliberately ruined the range. This Citizen Advisory Committee was established in 2002 to prevent that from happening to the Clark County Shooting Park. However, since July 2010, the Parks Department has not renewed the Committee’s Charter with the County Commission and are trying to ignore the importance of citizen recommendations to the county commission. The Shooting Park was developed with citizen input to serve the shooting public, not special interest groups and not the bureaucracy of the parks department.

    Now, the parks department is recommending changes to the fees, rules, regulations, resolutions directly to the County Commission. The Advisory Committees’ recommendations that were approved by the Board of County Commissioners for the development and operation of the Shooting Park are now being ignored by the Parks Department..

    These fee changes have not been recommended by Shooting Park Citizen’s Advisory Committee. These fees change the Advisory Committee’s prior recommendations to the Board of County Commission.

    1. These fees and other proposed changes to rules/regulation/resolutions of the shooting park should be proposed as a separate agenda items independent from the Parks Department
    2. All fees, rules, regulations, resolutions and changes to the approved operational plans should be reviewed by the Citizen’s Advisory Committee, and their recommendation should be given to the County Commission directly before any actions are taken.
    3. These agenda items and any other agenda items for the shooting park should be pulled by the Board of County Commission until the Board’s Citizen Advisory Committee is re-chartered and operational.
    4. The Citizen’s Advisory Committee must made up of public shooters and not people representing special interests.
    5. The Board of County Commission should not accept for action any shooting park agenda items that have not been reviewed and recommended in a public meeting by the Boards’ Shooting Park Citizen’s Advisory Committee.

    If you are concerned about the future of the Clark County Shooting Park being operated and maintained as a public shooting range, please contact you county commissioners and attend this meeting on December 7, 2010. Let your opinions be heard.

    Thank you,

    Friends of the Shooting Park

    (a) A period of at least 60 days of residency in the county before registration of such a firearm is required.
    (b) A period of at least 72 hours for the registration of a pistol by a resident of the county upon transfer of title to the pistol to the resident by purchase, gift or any other transfer.

    (b) “Firearm capable of being concealed” includes all firearms having a barrel less than 12 inches in length.
    (c) “Pistol” means a firearm capable of being concealed that is intended to be aimed and fired with one hand.(Added to NRS by 1989, 652; A 2007, 1289)

    Huh?

    I am WELL aware of that! I was one of several that initiated efforts to hold Clark County to the state law.

    However, I'm not sure how that statute relates to these issues: Fees increases; advisory committee(s); contracting for the design of an archery building and sporting clays course.
