Scouts did not report this incident, in fact the BLM, Utah County Commissioner, Utah County Sheriffs, Utah Shooting Sports and of course Channel 5 were just across the street discussing the issues of a home owner having stray bullets hitting her house. When they heard the explosion and the fire start. They all had responded within a couple of minutes.
The Utah Shooting Sports Council in working with the BLM, Utah County and others are doing what we can to not have this area shut down and as the USSC Chair, Clark Aposhian was telling me tonight, this was behavior did us no good in the cause to keep this area open and really added fuel to the fire of getting this closed. Correct in your thinking that it is BLM land and they can not close it. We all agree on this, but that is not what everyone was thinking yesterday.
Stupidity was at its best.......
More to come, I have said enough tonight.
