Planning commission to choose between two locations for new Lawrence gun range

Gun safety is one of the most important aspects of gun owner responsibility. In order to become familiar with your firearm, you should train with it regularly. If locations are not available to the public, then gun owners will find "alternatives" such as shooting in areas where shooting should not be allowed. What is better? Having gun owners shooting where shooting is a danger to others? Or, having access to a place for gun owners to become familiar with their firearms? Now that Kansas is legal for conceal and carry, I would rather gun owners know how to safely operate and shoot their weapon, than having gun owners carrying weapons into public without proper familiarity of their weapon. On that note, where ever or who ever opens such place should be under proper supervision to insure that the facility is safe for everyone.

Opinion: Where is U.S. tipping point on guns?

Why does a three year old have access to a loaded gun?

Thanks Gary for posting your view! You pointed out exactly what is and has been the problem all along. This country needs to start focusing on the "mental" issues first. It is only costly when a shooting occurs! Then, gun owners should have proper training, safety classes, and learning the responsibility that goes with owning a firearm.

Letter: Traffic priorities

John, bike usage will only improve or increase when Lawrence completes the bike lanes that they have already started. Also, have you ever had to slow down or wait to get around a cyclists because the cyclist did not have access to a bike lane? How is this for good for traffic? Students are back and I watch this happen every year especially, on Kentucky and Tennessee street. Sure, those cyclist should probably choose different paths but the point remains. Lawrence can't have only half the city for bike lanes and expect to see a rise in cyclist activity. Many of us simply do not ride because Lawrence is not bike friendly with uncompleted paths. Cars, cyclists and pedestrians all should have "safe and completed paths". We are now paying for the poor planning for these bike lanes that should have been included years ago.

I have resided in Lawrence since 93' and have rode my bike for exercise and also to get to work. I felt it was a great way to get exercise, keep fit and it was good for the environment. After several incidents, mostly due to lack of bike lanes or uncompleted bike lanes and safety, I quit riding to work. After my buddy got hit while riding his bike, I decided it was just not worth it! I feel the city of Lawrence is attempting to fix this problem of "uncompleted bike lanes" and I am glad to see it happening. Kudos to those who keep fighting for bikers! I don't feel I am the only one that feels this about bike lanes in Lawrence. I think cars, bikes and pedestrians should all be considered in improving or constructing new streets in town. I do not see how constructing and completing safer bike lanes is a bad thing?

Maybe more people would ride their bikes in Lawrence, if Lawrence had more bike paths?
