I went out to the LDWF range today near Woodworth, LA.
It was closed.
Par for the damned course.
State bureaucrats say the range is open (see the webpage above), but it isn't.
Pittman-Robertson money was used to build that range. A bunch of nobody hunters and fishermen like me pay an 11% excize tax on firearms, ammo, and archery equipment and we pay a 10% excize tax on handguns. Plus, we pay license fees, all that money going to the LDWF. Then, when we want to do a little shooting, the range paid for by our money is closed.
