Firestone gun range plans on hold
Last Updated: 100 days ago
FIRESTONE, Colo. - A proposed gun range in Firestone is now on hold.
The developer appeared before the Firestone Town Board Wednesday night to temporarily pull its application.
State wildlife officials had asked the company to move the gun range rather away from protected wildlife. Now, the developer says he needs more time to study the new location.
Firestone's mayor promised a thorough process, even though there's some public opposition.
"It's not that some people don't want more cars or trucks. It's not even that some people object to Second Amendment rights, it's just that the process is difficult," said Mayor Chat Auer.
The developer plans to resubmit the proposal and have more community hearings about the gun range.
