Here is motivation from an anti gun "film maker"..

886. Pallavi Somusetty from Oakland, CA signed this petition on Feb 19, 2014.
It would be a shame to keep the noise-levels as is, due to a few insensitive pro-gun types using childhood nostalgia or Second Amendment rights as an excuse to impede on our quality of life in our own backyard.

Here is a draft letter I plan to send to each EBRPD board member. This is to the current President.

List of Board members:

http://www.ebparks.org/about/board

February 19, 2014

Ayn Wieskamp
President of East Bay Regional Park District Board
East Bay Regional Park District*(EBRPD)
2950 Peralta Oaks Court
P.O. Box 5381
Oakland, CA 94605-0381*

Dear Madame President Wieskamp:

I am writing to ask you to support keeping the Chabot Gun Club marksmanship range open. This is a valuable community resource in that it promotes firearms training and safe use among local citizens in the San Francisco East Bay area.

My father taught me and my brothers’ safe gun handling and marksmanship at Chabot nearly 35 years ago. I plan to teach my children safe firearm skills when they become of age. Chabot provides excellent training opportunities as well as a safe place to practice all types of shooting activities. It serves the community well in this regard. It would be a shame to close this excellent range due to a few over sensitive anti-gun types using noise as an excuse to further limit access to safe places to practice these skills. *I have hiked, fished and camped at Anthony Chabot Park and never heard excessive firearms noise. The EPA works with the range to measure the lead content and ensure it meets safety guild-lines. Also the lead and other metals are recycled. Closing the range would be a hardship since people would have to drive further out to go to other ranges in Livermore or the Peninsula. Going to ranges further away would impact those with lower or fixed incomes. *I invite the folks complaining about the range to go there and watch. You will be surprised by the diversity of the people shooting. Men, women, kids of age, whites, blacks, Asians, Hispanics, middle-eastern , working class, techies and GBTG folks. Come to any Calguns.net gathering or any weekend, you will see the diverse population that uses this valuable resource

Thank you for your support.

Sincerely,

X

Look who was the 2nd person that signed the new petition to close Chabot..Our old friend from Saint George Spirits Distillery, founder Jorg Rupf!! He took his original petition down after getting heat from the us in January.

The time for threats is over. Time to launch a nation wide boycott of their products starting with Hanger One Vodka!

2. Jorg Rupf from Oakland, CA signed this petition on Feb 17, 2014.
1. Frank Burton from Hayward, CA signed this petition on Feb 16, 2014.

UPDATE: We just crossed the 2000 signature mark. Huge thanks to all that have signed and passed along this petition. Keep up the good work.

The petition to close the range has only ~200 signatures and is essentially dead in the water, however, the same folks started a slightly different petition calling for an end or drastic reduction of the noise the range generates. Make no mistake this change in rhetoric is no less an offense to the renewal of the lease to operate the range (current lease expires at the end of the year). In fact this threat to its continued operation may be more dangerous, because people who would not support full closure might say, "well it seems reasonable for them to quiet down a little", and cast a vote to limit range activities.

This second petition has just under 1000 sigs, and is stagnating, whereas our petition is growing fast.

So again thank you for your support Calgunners. I'll keep updating as events unfold.
