As tax paying citizens of Montgomery County, Texas, we have the right to enjoy a reasonable level of peace and quiet while in our homes. This is a very important quality of life issue. Although some noise in our daily living is unavoidable, such as the routine repair and maintenance of our homes and communities, it is most often controlled by community association deed restrictions. The deed restrictions usually include language that prohibits loud garden and construction machinery between the hours of 8pm to 7 am so as not to disturb its citizensâ

    My neighbor's 3 loud dogs have woken me up every night this past week. With my windows closed and sound machine running. The same neighbors don't answer their door when I knock to ask them politely to take their dogs inside at night.

    There are emission control and noise ordinances for vehicles that are not being enforced when owners modify exhaust systems etc. I think the police should make this a priority. No vehicle or motorcycle comes from the factory with a loud exhaust and violators are easily spotted.

    I have lived in my neighborhood for over fifteen years and until about 2 years ago it was very peaceful, quiet and serene. That is why we moved here is to enjoy peace and quiet in the country, and sit on the back porch and enjoy nature. Now it is like living next door to Iraq. Some guy and his wife bought just barely over ten acres (15710 Coe Loop, Magnolia) about 5500 feet from our home and has since built a gun range, of which they shoot incessantly all day long, sometimes before 7am and recently until 9:45 PM. We hear automatic weapons, 50 calibers, 45s, rifle shots, explosions, etc. It is like a terrorist training ground. (And it might be) We did not bargain for a gun range. There should be laws to stop someone from operating this way when it poses a nuisance, and interferes with peoples right to enjoy their home. All I hear now when we sit on the porch trying to enjoy some coffee and quiet time is repeated gun fire. The explosions rock the neighborhood and shake our windows. I have had small things fall off shelves occasionally. It is unconscionable that the law is on the side of land owners with more than ten acres in disturbing the otherwise peaceful environment in which we live, And we lived here first. Shouldn't we get a "say" in some one operating this type of range? Don't get me wrong, I am not against guns, I am a member of the NRA. But the law allows persons who own more than ten acres to shoot whatever they want. I think the law is flawed, and the spirit of the law is that the owner, and only the owner has this right, not his guest, or others that he allows to shoot there. I understand hunting, a little target shooting every once in awhile, but every day, every weekend, every Holiday and even on Christmas morning, just constant shooting and explosions is ridiculous, and is out of hand from the intent of the law. I would like to see some people band together and fight these people who come in and take over our neighborhoods with these type activities. Anyone want to help?
