Attack on 2nd Amendment & Police Training Range

Our Training Facility is under attack by an anti-gun local  actor and friends. This is a direct attack on our second amendment rights, and the freedoms in which it is supposed to protect. It is an attack on Law Enforcement and other Government Agencies.  The Political correctness of Politicians has given a voice to this ridiculous minority .

I need support from every gun owning, NRA member, American Patriot, Law Abiding hard working American, Law Enforcement, Military member. Everyone who is sick and tired of the current  status of affairs that we are seeing going on in America, which is sadly and  unbelievably tolerated. What is America turning into ?

The attack on this facility started as a noise issue. We proved that we are well below the legal standards set by the State. Then they complained about safety issues, that we also proved were not an issue . Next, it went to us being an ISIS / Terrorist training facility. They said that we were teaching people to conduct school shootings, and teaching people how to shoot from rooftops, like the Vegas shooting. They wrote to the Governor and said we were shooting “Black Face” targets. Of course these are all lies! The majority of our members have dedicated their lives to serving and protecting this country! This is offensive to us, our facility, and our members!!

The training facility was built because I saw a need for a place that agencies could train, and maintain a level and quality of training. Training that matched the ever changing violent levels of crime and violence that we have seen on the American streets, and in the areas of school, worship, and the work place.

The Police departments do not have the proper areas to train, so I, a retired detective and law enforcement officer, created one for them. The local agencies are allowed to train at this facility for free. The range also offers a safe area for civilians to shoot, and receive professional assistance if needed. The range also provides a location for professional competition shooters to train.

My name is Ed Rivenburg. Myself and a close friend created the largest training facility in the Northeast. We each have backgrounds in Military or Law Enforcement.
We are an approved Shooting Range, issued a special use permitt by the town in which I am located. The Town assigned me a zoning use for “Recreational, Club or Membership”. The training facility applied for a permit for a shooting range that was for “Police, Military, and other Government Agencies , and also open to the Public".
The Town approved the request and granted use a special use permit assigning the range a zoning classifacation recreational, club or membership because that is the only code that fit.  There is no code specific for Police Training.
The Actor who lives over one mile away has hired an attorney who has stated that the definitions of “Recreational, Club or Memberships” do not support The Police or Government agency training for those while on duty.
The Town in their infamous wisdom has now ordered me to stop professional training , because the actor has threatened to sue them.

This nonsense has cost us tens of thousands of dollars. I desperately need your help. The actor and his friends have said they will not stop, and will nickel and dime me out of business.

Why wouldn’t we want to provide a FREE place for local law enforcement to use, and receive the level of training that they need!? This is not a noise, or safety issue. This is an anti-gun issue!

All money collected will be used to pay for an attorney, engineer, surveying and all other expenses needed to fight this anti-gun agenda that we are facing.

 Any additional funds will go directly to the improvements of the training facility to benefit the hundreds of civilians and the professionals who train at this facility, that keep Americans safe. Let’s make this the largest state of the art facility in America, and allow our law enforcement to train!

Thank you for your support!! I desperately need your help. This is a direct anti-gun agenda, not by the town, but by one local actor and his followers.

Please stand together and fight with me and all of the individuals which use this facility, and all of the Law Enforcement members, and Military members that desperately need to utilize this facility.  

Your donations will help keep Americans safe.  Lets stand together, show our power, and fight to defend our Second Amendment right! Lets make this the largest Pro America, Pro 2nd Amendment, Pro Law Enforcement, Pro Military fund raiser!
