Taylorville Gun Range Approval Denied

Updated: Thursday, July 17 2014, 04:38 PM CDT

CHRISTIAN COUNTY -- Approval to build a gun range near Taylorville is denied.

Christian county leaders shoot down the plan for an indoor gun range outside of Taylorville with a 12-4 vote.

The proposed membership-only gun range would have been built in Johnson township, just a few miles from the city in a rural area.

At the most recent county board meeting, those for the plan said that there's nowhere local to shoot. 

Many nearby residents were opposed, not to the idea of a gun range, but to the proposed location of it.
