Kind Gets Federal Money for Shooting Ranges

WASHINGTON, DC (Ben Caxton) — President Donald Trump Friday signed into law a bill authored by Wisconsin Representative Steve Kind that provides money for local shooting ranges. The “Target Practice and Marksmanship Training Support Act” will give hunters and gun owners a safe location to teach responsible gun ownership and hunting safety, Kind said in a press release. The new law will allow states to use Pittman-Robertson Wildlife Restoration Act grants to create new target ranges or expand current ranges. The grant funding is provided by federal excise taxes from the sales of hunting equipment. Kind is a lifelong hunter and sportsman and has passed that tradition on to his sons. He shoots trap at the Ettrick and Holmen shooting ranges in western Wisconsin.
