Hello we would like to introduce ourselves to you- we are Brad and Lisa Ward. We live on 20 acres in the small town of Williamson, Ga. in Spalding County. 2 1/2 years ago we realized a life long dream when we opened a gun range and gunsmith shop on our property. We are a faith based company run by Christians and founded on Christian principles and values. We had the written support of the majority of our neighbors before we even petitioned the county for our business license in 2014. Forward ahead 2 years, the business is successful and our neighbors have now decided they want us shut down. They have proven they will stop at nothing to accomplish their agenda and have publicly drug our names through the mud, lied about us publicly on countless occasions, have criminally trespassed on our property and criminally vandalized our home. They have successfully campaigned to our county government who now is using everything in their power to silence us, literally. This is a viscious attack on a small home based business and even though some would argue, a direct attack on our precious 2nd amendment rights. Some of our neighbors have an agenda and it is not just to shut us down, but to shut down every small gun range in Georgia and America. We are trying desperately to fight this fight with the county to keep our business alive.
We offer the residents of our county and surrounding area a safe place to shoot and learn firearm safety. We have many, many law enforcement officers who train and shoot at our range free of charge.
To shut us down will force countless people to have to go back to shooting in their own backyards, close to neighbors houses in unsafe situations. It will also be one more check in the win column for the left and their liberal agendas who want to do everything they can to take away our gun rights.
We need your help! Our legal fees are mounting and they continue to grow as we try to fight the good fight. The county is also now trying to force us to pay for 2 consultants (hired by the county mind you!) to give the range their stamp of approval. We appreciate your time and consideration. We know there are many many causes to give to on GoFundMe and we thank you for anticipated support.
