An Army Ranger in Texas is relying on a Texas law that has never been used to challenge the lawsuit that has shut down his gun range in Kaufman County.
After completing tours in Iraq and Afghanistan as a sniper, Adam Morgan opened his range on 100 acres of land near Dallas, Texas, but neighbors complained. Residents near the range were at “immediate risk” according to the county’s district attorney. A temporary injunction was put in place that prevented Morgan from operating his business.
According to the Dallas Morning News, 30 year old Morgan has said that nobody has been harmed due to the gun range because he and his associates operated the range according to safety guidelines.
The gun range presented a danger according to Raymond Bedrick, whose family raises cattle on land nearby.
Bedrick said, “One of my grandsons was out there one day and (he) called me about bullets whizzing around…This is not the boondocks. We’ve got houses and subdivisions out here.”
By opening the gun range, perhaps without properly considering factors such as close neighbors, Morgan has run a great risk of injury to others who will likely sue him. The current case involving his range, will hopefully prevent any chance of injury on the property.
The case, which began last May and was set for trial in Sept., will be the first one to test the somewhat-new state law supported by the National Rifle Association, which was put in place to prevent nuisance suits against Texas gun ranges. The law states that the only way to file a claim against a gun range is if it involves personal injury, death, property damage or breach of contract. Suits also continue if they are based on the premise that a gun range is operating not within industry standards.
