From Daily Times-Call article:
The U.S. Forest Service, in the form of Boulder Ranger Christine Walsh, is considering changes to how and where recreational shooting is permitted on the 160,000 acres of Arapaho- Roosevelt National Forest she’s charged with managing. And faced with increasing numbers of people driving to the forest to hike, bike, drive and shoot, a total ban on recreational shooting is now on the table.

These people, don't they realize that banning shooting isn't going to make it stop? If they close down Lefthand, people will just go else where into the national forests and shoot, probably where it is even more dangerous. Why not designate a spot where people can shoot, where it has a backstop, and contains the trash. Sounds like an amazing idea to me.
