Gloucester Township Gun Range Under Fire

Residents in Gloucester Township’s Forest meadows are complaining about the Iron Horse Pistol and Gun Club. It’s a firing range which, according to residents has been in violation of zoning laws and has been causing problems for homeowners there. The development is within 1,500 feet of the firing range and many say the noise has been a nuisance for a long time. According to the Courier-Post, they say it’s an improper use of farmland. Some homes have even been struck by stray bullets which are believed to have come from the firing range. A dozen residents have filed suit.

But the other side of the story is the man who runs the range said concessions have been made over time including moving the direction of the firing range. Perhaps most important, this range has been there since 1959, long before the area was developed as a suburb. To me, this is the classic example of moving into an area where something already exists then complaining about it being there.
