    This is a cut and paste of an e-mail I just recieved from the NRA:
    Arizona Public Lands Slated For Closure To Shooters
    The 128,000-acre Ironwood Forest National Monument is under the jurisdiction of the Bureau of Land Management and is generally opened to dispersed recreational shooting. A management plan just released for public review and comment is likely to change that if BLM's preferred management alternative (Alternative C) is adopted. Alternative C would close the Monument to recreational shooting. Hunting would continue to be allowed.
    The plan contains 4 alternatives: A is the no-action alternative that would keep current management as is; B is the most restrictive management alternative and along with C, would close the Monument to recreational shooting; and D is the most access-oriented and would allow shooting to continue.
    To review the document go to http://www.blm.gov/az/env_docs/library/rmps/rmps.htm. Public meetings will be announced at http://www.blm.gov/az/news.htm. Written comments are due by the end of May and can be mailed to the Tucson Field Office, 12661 East Broadway Boulevard, Tucson, AZ 85748 or by email to AZ_IFNM_RMP@blm.gov.

    I hate to see anybodies rights slowly get chiseled away because it always leads to more, But, with the state of most areas that see alot of recreational shooting with all the trash and unsafe practices I am inclined to go along with the ban.

    The trouble is, these people are never satisfied. If you give them any kind of victory, they keep going after more.
