Dear Carindale residents,
Imagine a beautiful sunny Spring afternoon in our lovely suburb. Kids are playing in the backyard, you enjoy some quiet time with a coffee and then it starts. Boom, boom, boom. And continues for hours…
I want to get your opinion on the shooting noise in our suburb. I understand that the shooting range has been here for a long time and has a right to be there. But the city is moving closer and closer to it and more residential areas are being developed close by as the population grows. Isn’t it time for some changes for the shooting range as well? Aren’t there any modifications available to quieten guns? How about some electronic aim targeting?
I don’t mind if people like shooting but why does a whole suburb have to life with the aftermath of it. Everybody in our suburb has the some responsibilities to our neighbors and the people living here.
