Bootleggers and Baptists at the gun range

Gilbert Indoor Range: Fees

We will have a wide variety ammunition available. Under our special exception to operate an indoor shooting range, Montgomery County placed the requirement that all ammunition be purchased and consumed at the facility. [...] They did not want guns and ammo together in the car while driving around the County, even though it would have been perfectly legal going to and from a range.
So the firm given a monopoly on indoor shooting in the county also gets to sell all the ammunition. Both the Grundyists on the County Council and the crony capitalists at Gilbert must be so pleased with themselves. What a coincidence that their desires would align so well!
