There is no financial incentive(profit) to be made in a simple shooting range and nowhere near enough usage by the public to justify a tax supported one.
Trouble is that shooting at a public ranges with all the necessary rules and safeguards that are require is just not that fun. There are a few guys that like to shoot paper but the average Joe with a car full of kids...not so much.
P.S. Interesting user name, I noticed you didn't mention the hugely public subsidized ski industry. If we took 10% of the money the state spends keeping the ski resorts open I bet there could be a public shooting range in every county...just sayn.

opps...after a re-read, by golly you did whine a little about the ski industry...my bad.
