The Idaho Supreme Court reversed the decision of First District Court Judge John Mitchell and ruled today that the Farragut Shooting Range could re-open.
Maybe it’s just my imagination, but it appears to me that whichever Justice wrote the opinion, he has a bit of a sense of humor, to wit:
Perhaps the most baffling conclusion reached by the district court is contained in the following statement [emphasis mine]:
Simply because IDFG has installed at least one baffle over all 12 designated shooting positions at the 100-yard shooting area, and such baffles are placed and of sufficient size that a shooter in any position (standing, kneeling, prone) cannot fire his or her weapon above the berm behind the target at the 100-yard shooting area does not mean IDFG has complied with the Court’s 2007 condition to lift its 2007 injunction for these 12 designated shooting positions, for up to 500 shooters per year.
The “baffles” were an integral element in the case and the decision.
