So, stupid people annoy the crap out of me! Out on the Pawneed National Grasslands, there seems to be a higher percentage of stupid people with guns that make the rest of us gun owners look bad. In the last couple months within a two-mile radius of a common target shooting area, there have been three grass fires started by stupid people. At least two of the fires were started by people shooting tracer rounds when the grass was incredibly dry. Besides starting fires, some of these idiots are destroying private property by shooting up fences posts and fence wires. Also, apparently these same intelligent individuals also ignore basic gun safety, and place their targets on hill tops instead of using a nice backstop. On top of starting fires, destroying private property, and endangering the public, these same types of individuals also have no regard for common decency and leave all sorts of trash behind when they are done shooting. You can always tell where they were shooting by the tons of cases left behind, and the shot up appliances, computers, and other types of trash.
I am sure this type of behavior is not limited to the Pawnee National Grasslands, but it is where I have seen the worst of it. The most frustrating part about it is there is not a good way to stop these idiots. More rules and laws would do nothing to stop this kind of behavior since you can't fix stupid. All more rules and laws would do is stop law-abiding citizens from enjoying public property like we should all be able to do. Sorry about the rant, but I don't know what else to do.
