Good Bye Markham Park Range? Money may talk louder than guns.

Markham Park Range is one of the two public ranges in South Florida and the only one in Broward County. Located within the Markham Park Complex, it has Skeet and Trap, a Pistol/Rifle Range, and a Sporting Clays course.Also hosts IPSC, IDPA, Steel and Cowboy Action matches and I am guessing I am missing somebody somewhere. Some say that the fees collected at the range basically help sustain the rest of the park.

The City of Sunrise, strapped for cash like any other city, was in the process of approving permits for a new Hotel & Corporate park when they found out that barely half a mile south of the proposed location, there was a gun range <gasp>. Now the vote has been postponed and I wonder if the machinations have begun in order to close the range as they drool over the possibilities of tax income, kickbacks and paid political favors for the construction project.  And to cap a beautiful idea for Gun Owners, another article seems to suggest that the hotel to be built might be a Marriot. After the legal faux pas during the NRA convention, Wouldn’t that just top it all?
