Noise Control

Kim du Toit is ranting about shooting range closures. Someone built an elementary school and housing developments too close to a pre-existing gun range. Now it is the range that has to go.

This sort of thing has always pissed me off. This article is looking at a gun range, but it happens all the time with industrial sites as well. My aunt had all kinds of trouble when a housing development was built in earshot of a daiper cleaning service she ran.

What will happen is that the gun range will stay, but its hours will be cut back by the courts so it doesn't bother anyone as much. The range owner will not be compensated for the reduction in his revenue.
