Say NO to Shooting Range near TN State Park
Please sign this petition in opposition of the proposed shooting range on Retro Hughes Road, Sale Creek Tennessee. The proposed range would be approximately less than 0.5 miles from the Justin P. Wilson Cumberland Trail State Park (Possum Creek Gorge section).
The nearby land and home owners are concerned the loud noise from the high powered rifles could negatively affect ecotourism to the Tennessee State Park. Nearby landowners are also concerned the spent lead ammunition could contaminate the nearby creeks including, Clemons Creek. Thus, negatively affecting the water supply for property owners and wildlife.
There is already an existing gun range 20 minutes from the proposed shooting range. It is important to know we support gun rights and shooting ranges. However, this shooting range could negatively affect this majestic state park and nearby land owners.
The Hamilton County Commissioner planning meeting on March 14, 2016 will decided on the permit for the proposed shooting range.
