I think this fire is wrongfully being blamed on casual shooting and plinking.
Only authorized county workers are allowed in the dump site to shoot guns.And since the dumps are occupied by workers on weekends it is safe to
assume this was an authorized use of guns in the dump site to rid it of
scavengers, animals, and rats. The news media is trying to blame it wrongfully
on sport shooters of Utah. More fodder for lies and implementation of gun
control laws.The state passed laws years ago that banned people
entering and shooting their guns in the dumps so this story is misleading and
being untruthful about how it started. Government policy and operations is
responsible for the fire, not sportsmen breaking in to the dump site.I think the DN and the rest of the Utah news media owes the people of Utah an
apology for wrongfully accusing sports hunters in starting this fire. Not only
that, this means the dump operators and county are liable for damages for
starting the fire and burning homes and property just like the Army did to
Now even the DNews has turned into the evil Liberal media!Love
it.But in all seriousness, it's way to hot today for tin foil
hats. Safety first.
