(Middletown, NY) Oct. 1, 2003:
“That’s the chair I always sit on when I’m out on
the deck,” said Emily Boardman, who lives on Sugar Loaf Mountain
Road, near the sportsmen’s club. “The chair was gouged, and I found
the bullet lying on the deck. It’s very alarming.”
I’d hate to see anyone injured, but that club is completely
legal” Brian Jarvis, Chester police Chief, said. The only law that
applies is that you can’t shoot a firearm within 500 feet facing
in the direction of a house or street.
Stray bullets from the club have traveled miles, not
feet. In one incident last January, he said a .50-caliber bullet
traveled 2.5 miles over Sugar Loaf Mountain, coming down through
the roof of a house.
