Drivers go through checkpoint at Arizona’s Redington Pass



KVOA 4 News - by Sam Salzwedel

TUCSON – Redington Pass visitors had to go through a Forest Service checkpoint Saturday.

Forest and National Park rangers along with the Arizona Game and Fish Department made sure visitors followed the law.

People legally shoot firearms in areas next to the main road. Many of them leave their empty cartridge casings and targets on the ground.

“You come out here to shoot,” Shephard Luke said, “and it just ruins the sport, makes a gun owner look bad.”

Law enforcement stopped about 250 vehicles, reminding shooters to pick up their trash.

A driver admitted shooting, but did not have the empty casings. A Game and Fish officer turned him around and told him to pick up his empty rounds.

Heidi Schewel is the spokesperson for the Coronado National Forest. She says the checkpoint was all about education.

“Here’s what’s responsible. Here’s what’s acceptable,” Schewel said. “These are public lands to be used and enjoyed by everybody. Let’s keep them that way, so everybody can really enjoy them and use them.”

Forest rangers arrested 4 people for outstanding warrants.

Officers gave 11 citations including marijuana possession, underage drinking and an illegally killed deer.

Many who went through the checkpoint appreciated the enforcement.

“I don’t mind it at all,” Michael Lachapelle said. “They’re keeping things regulated, making sure that people are doing what they’re supposed to do, cleaning up after themselves. So it’s good.”

The Forest Service will work on an area management plan for Redington Pass starting January 1. They want shooters, hikers, hunters and everybody else to be able to use the area.

They will close 3 shooting sites and remove trash including lead bullets.

The Forest Service is considering the possibility of an official shooting range in the area.

    Key word, “regulated”. This guy is a douchebag who wants Big Brother in his life 24/7. What a sheeple.

    “The Forest Service is considering the possibility of an official shooting range in the area.”

    Here we go. Designated shooting areas now, just like designated areas where to take a piss or fish or eat or sleep or park or shop. More control and more regulations.

    Hey, I know how we can restrict and control the gun owners even more. How about we make designated gun areas. Yeah! That would be great. And then we can make everyone stare at the gunman like they are evil and therefore broaden our “Gun Free Zone” policies which worked so well in Aurora, Colorado and everywhere else.

    What a bunch of fools.

    Honestly, I have read so many articles this past decade that it’s the same bullshit story over and over again. It’s insanity. Anyone with half a brain can read right through the bullshit and know what their leading to.

    Yes, Daddy.

    Yes, Mommy.

    I know you just memorized that off a NWO cue card.

    Boy, isn’t it great being a child to the government all your life. Especially when you are older than the officer by at least 20 years of age and they still stand there talking down to you like you’re scum and trying to teach you how to live like you were born yesterday. Unbelievable.

    “No, here’s what you can do. You can do. You can turn around and help by picking up the empty shell casings and throw them in the trash so I don’t have to issue you a littering citation.” Park officer.

    A “littering citation”? A “littering citation”? BAHAHAHAAHA!!!! ROLMFAO!!! Are you F**KING KIDDING ME??? Did they just come up with that citation on their own? How low can you get for issuing a “littering citation”? Are the park rangers losing business or something that they have stooped that low? What’s next? Do they want us to wipe our feet and tire tracks from the road before leaving, too or they will give a “damaging the public land citation”? I mean come on, people. WAKE THE F**K UP!!!

    Ok. Here’s what the park ranger can do. He can do his F**KING JOB and pick up the shit himself since that is in his job description and our tax payer dollars are paying for him to do it. So stop making someone else do your job for you, you lazy sacks of shit!

    Honestly, what the hell are we paying these guys for? First FEMA and the National Guard and now the Park Rangers. I’m getting completely sick and tired of this “Safety and security” bullshit! I didn’t ask for it and I don’t want it nor do I need it. Go take your propaganda bullshit somewhere else or I’ll shoot you and the MSM myself!
