DENVER (AP) -- U.S. Sen. Mark Udall is urging Coloradans to sign a petition to develop more shooting ranges for the public.

Udall is also urging his colleagues to hold a hearing on his bill to develop more shooting ranges.

The Target Practice and Marksmanship Training Support Act would give states the flexibility to spend federal funds to create or improve public shooting ranges.

    If his intention is to provide more and safer places to shoot I'm for it. However, makes one suspicous as for his reasoning. I'm suggesting once so called adequate shooting places are available, he could then push to make it illegal to shoot on other public lands! I don't buy it at this point. He would have to put it in writing and get it passed without taking away the ability to go onto public lands and shoot, for whatever reason! i.e Hunting and/or target shooting. If such information was not included, it could be the next step by anti gun people to stop all hunting and shooting of any kind!

    I like shooting. But Mark ought to figure out that this is not the time to be spending more money. There are more than enough places to shoot around here. There may not be as many on the Front Range, but Udall's responsibility to the people of Colorado and the nation is to fix the debt crisis. And you don't fix the debt crisis by buying votes with government programs.
