LAS VEGAS – Nevada Senator Harry Reid spoke today at the opening ceremony for the Clark County Shooting Park. Attendees included Shooting Park Manager Don Turner, County Manager Virginia Valentine, Commissioner Tom Collins, Senator John Ensign, Rep. Shelley Berkley, Commission Chairman Rory Reid, Senator John Lee, and Governor Jim Gibbons. Reid was instrumental in securing land and more than $60 million in funding for the park.
“I appreciate the work of all those from Clark County, of sportsmen and sportswomen from across our state, of local law enforcement officials, and of everyone else who has shared this goal,” Reid said. “Nevadans aimed high when we set out to create the largest and most advanced shooting range in the world. But we kept a steady eye on our target. And today, with great pride, Nevada has hit the bulls-eye.”
Wayne LaPierre, CEO of the National Rifle Association and other NRA members also attended today’s opening ceremony.
“I am proud to stand shoulder to shoulder with Senator Reid in our fight to protect the Second Amendment,” LaPierre said. “I can tell you no one has been a stronger advocate for responsible gun ownership than him. I am proud to join him today at this world-class facility. We wouldn’t be here without his vision and hard work.”
