I just don't understand why shooters put up with being second class citizens who have to justify facilities on bases that no other recreationalists do. Our communities dump millions on golf courses and swimming pools without asking whether it will pay for itself. The State spent how much rebuilding the Provo river? For a few hundred fisherman for a few months a year? The community fishing ponds. What did those cost, and how much revenue do they raise? The inter-county bike paths. What did that cost, and how much revenue did that generate for the state? Who even uses them? And at the same time, we're paying the entire bill for wildlife management in this State, while everyone else gets to enjoy it. When did we convince ourselves that we don't deserve as good as everyone else? As for the anti-government control types, how "controlled" do you feel playing 9 holes at Nibley? Or fishing the Provo? You get the government control you tolerate. Don't want to be treated like a child at a lousy range. Than it's time to speak up and start telling the State what we want.
Any my gosh, how much does this State spend on boating, just so they can tell all but a luck few to go pound sand from Saturday lunch until Sunday night?
