Welcome to the Chicago Park District Gun Club!
Chicago, IL—When I’m elected Mayor I will put out to bid a contract for a world class gun range on the lakefront.
Chicago’s new gun range and club would be placed where noise would not pose a problem for local residents. There would be a year around, well ventilated, indoor pistol range with 200 positions. There would also be an outdoor trap & skeet range where the lead could be collected and recycled.
Of course there needs to be a pro-shop with a staff of instructors. There would be a restaurant for the shooters. The range could also be used by police agencies and security companies during off peak hours.
There was that Lincoln Park trap & Skeet range at Diversey and the Lake that the Lakefront Liberals shut down long ago. It was a busy range and gave the lakefront character. Today there would be legitimate concern of lead contamination of Lake Michigan if the shooters were constantly spraying lead into the water.
The Cook County Forest Preserve could also operate two such ranges, one North and one South.
