    I hope they address the problem of the shooters and illiterate people who can’t read the signs that say End of River road In AZ.
    And bring their trash out to shoot at. They are littering. Come on you gun owners I know this does not represent all of you guys. My dad raised me shooting up straw bales and paper targets and we picked up most shells! You are ruining it for everyone else. If you are reading this know I am taking license plate #’s and video of your disgusting habits so don’t be surprised when they come knocking.
