New Paltz residents say shooting range on private land is noisy, potentially deadly

Residents and business owners from both sides of the Wallkill River have converged on Town of New Paltz officials to voice their objections to a shooting range on private land on Springtown Road in New Paltz. The noise is distracting and disturbing, they say, and there are worries that this unregulated shooting space poses a very real danger to anyone within several hundred yards.
