    Just came here to post this same thing. If the freaking golf course can be opened there is no reason why the outdoor gun range canít be or why there needs to be special state mandated none sense on how it should be run.

    Clubs in the Sights of Legislators
    Your immediate action is necessary since HB 2440 (Kortz-D) will be voted on in the House State Government Committee tomorrow (Thursday, April 30th).

    HB 2440 is the latest government attempt to use the COVID-19 pandemic to regulate aspects of Pennsylvaniaís economy and essential activities through legislative fiat.

    Democrats and Republicans have teamed up against outdoor sportsman clubs to force draconian social distancing requirements and clubhouse closures.

    HB 2440 would mandate that clubs implement social distancing and mask requirements, including limiting only five shooters in each range at a time.

    The range limitations apply to archery, handgun, rifle, and shotgun ranges. Yeah, thatís pretty much everything.

    The bill would also require that clubhouses be closed.

    And if you donít comply, your local outdoor sportsman club will be shuttered by the strong arm of government.

    If your outdoor sportsman club is anything like mine, you know that it is filled with responsible adults who maintain their facilities and believe in caring for the environment.

    Thatís why they can be trusted with voluntarily implementing social distancing recommendations without the force of law.

    And many are doing just that!

    So, please take a moment to send a message (see above) to your state representatives immediately to oppose HB 2440. Let them know that you believe responsible adults can be trusted to do the right thing.

    Here's a copy of the bill. At least two republicans TURZAI and SCHLEGEL have sponsored it.

    I filled out the GOA email request, and followed it up with an email to Turzai condemning him for being a co-sponsor
