Petition to Keep Guns out of Pinelands Reserve

Protect Sarasota's Pinelands Reserve!

We, the signatories, oppose the Sarasota County Commission decision to approve a shooting range on 43 acres of Pinelands Reserve conservation land. 
The Sarasota County Comprehensive Plan requires “recreational uses implemented on the Walton Tract [Pinelands Reserve]....shall be limited to activities which are ecologically benign, non-consumptive, and resource-based." 

A shooting range employing lead shot and clay pigeons will introduce hazardous substances found to be carginogenic and otherwise toxic.
