Today, I went out to one of the few shooting areas that is still open to the public and was appalled to find one of the areas looking like this:
I know it looks like they had a lot of fun, but they forgot a couple of very important things. First, clean your shit up! As we started cleaning up, we found out that they also forgot that guns and booze don't mix!
You know, it only took about three minutes of this...
To make it look like this...
Seriously. Three minutes and five plastic bags that we managed to scrounge up from our cars. Didn't take hardly any time at all, certainly the drunk bastards who left the mess weren't in such a big hurry that they couldn't spare three minutes to clean up after themselves.
It's because of idiots like the ones who left the mess that we're losing our places to shoot.
I feel like not only is it important to teach our children about gun safety, but how to be good stewards of the land. If we allow our children to grow up to treat our public shooting lands the way these idiots did, we won't have any public shooting lands left.
