No good reason for an indoor gun range I'm highly against a gun range. We're not hunting in Huntington Beach, you don't need it for safety reasons, we have one of the best police departments around and there's no good reason to do this. All it's going to do is make the gun ownership higher, it's going to increase people getting shot, and it's just not a good thing. If people really want an indoor gun range that bad, they can go somewhere else to find one. Why do we need this?
