Oh, dread and mighty Czar,
I read with interest your post on the baloney reasons for shooting ranges to restrict single shooters in the Chicago area. None of the ranges I patronize in Ohio have those rules that I am aware of, one may shoot with adult supervision, and go alone (as an adult).
In my practice I am only aware of one range suicide. Could you cite sources for your claims? I’m smelling a paper out of it that can be used to demolish those “safety claims”.
I thank you, mighty sir.

Well, you could just Google shooting range suicide. We see a handful of examples.
- People do it.
- Others do it.
- Even Ozzie twins do it.
- Here is a murder/suicide
- Here is a range that only rents to two or more customers, just like some Chicago ranges.
- Still more.
Why, the Czar could go on. But that, as a researcher, is perhaps your job. Hardly a rash of cases: in fact, you are more likely to be killed by your own bathtub than you are to see a suicide in a range.
But in insurance liability cases, all it takes is oneand then everyones premiums go up.
Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
