Don’t let Wake County shut down the Wake County Firearm and Training Center, a public and taxpayer funded shooting range for the public.  

This facility is a treasure, used not just by Wake County citizens, but by countless others who received their firearm and firearms instructor certifications there. This facility has served to instruct countless people in the safe and responsible use of firearms and has trained as well countless firearm instructors. 


Certain liberty grabber groups claim they are all for gun safety and training while moving in the opposite direction.  Shouldn’t they welcome expanded hours for the public at a publicly funded firearms education and training center?



 EMAIL THE COUNTY COMMISSION MEMBERS: Use the contact information provided below and the copy/paste text provided under ‘Deliver This Message’

    Hello, my name is _______________ and I’m calling to voice my concerns as to whether the county commissioners will keep the publicly funded Firearms Education and Training Center open.
  • Those concerned with the issue of gun safety would most certainly want the public to have greater access to this facility, which was originally chartered for public use.
  • Thank you.

Suggested Subject: "Keep the range funded by the public open to the public"


Dear Wake County Commissioners :


It is appalling that you would let Sheriff Baker shut down this fine training facility that is used not only by  Wake County Citizens, but by many others. CBS 17 news suggests that there may be more to this shut down than just financial mismanagement by Range Safety Management as claimed by the Sheriff.


Putting a government agency the North Carolina Wildlife Commission in charge is not likely in the best interests of people who use the range for a wide variety of training and competition purposes. If they take over the range it would be closed for months.


What of those individuals who have paid for use of the range in advance? How about the many instructors who have been paid up front and now will not be able to complete their classes? 


Many of those training and competing at this facility stay overnight, buying many services from local vendors. Please stop this shut down, it would be a hardship to many locally and would prevent many from obtaining instruction in firearm safety.

I will be monitoring your actions on this important matter through alerts from Grass Roots North Carolina.
