NC Shooting Range Set On Fire

A private shooting range run by a club in Randolph County is trying to rebuild following an intentional fire that burned down a number of range structures.

The non-profit Triad Action Shooting Klub in the Trinity area is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of those involved in the arson of their facility last week. Club officials said three of five covered shooting areas and most of the shooting benches were destroyed. Randolph County Fire Marshal Erik Beard confirmed the fire was intentionally set.

In a fundraiser for the club, TASK’s president said that the two structures left unburned were only saved from destruction “because the fuses to the gas failed” and each had five one-gallon containers of gasoline “placed strategically next to the wooden posts that support the roof,” leading to the conclusion that the event was a “sophisticated arson, not some dumbasses with cigarettes and lighter fluid.”

The club says all five shooting lines are currently open, and they intend to rebuild with or without any help.

Anyone with information on the arson or those involved is being asked to contact the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office at (336) 318-6699 or Crime Stoppers at (336) 672-7463.

    Liberals know no shame and will resort to anything to further their agenda. They can’t differentiate between right and wrong. It’s a mental illness.

    • Lady Patriot

      Liberalism is indeed a mental disorder…however, they know the difference between right and wrong. They choose wrong.

      • Bill

        The liberals don’t respect “wrong” because their “leaders” have done wrong and nothing gets done to rectify the wrong or even file any charges for the wrong that is done. The liberals seem to want criminals to run free and rampant while causing terrible conditions and accusations against anyone else and won’t give up on their allegations. BUT just try and prove that they are wrong and you have the fbi raiding your office or home and turning your life upside down. Way too much double standards in this country of ours.

    • Steven Earle

      You got that right. Look to those who celebrate the destruction for the criminals.

    • C Ken Davis Sr

      you are right. those who did this tried to destroy a small business because it went against their desires. hope they are caught soon and get 20 years to life.

    • jwright673

      But who is the first person they will call when the shtf? An armed police officer.

    • Donnie Lowe

      10-4 that is a fact with communist democrats the end result justifies their means!

  • Medic RN

    Far worse; they can.

  • cj spaar

    how can we help? do you have a go fund me page?

  • dougfreeland

    As a non-profit and with, I am sure, significant NRA member support,a “Go Fund Me” effort might help with significant contributions. Could be much of an opportunity to improve the facility. Go for it.

  • Mark Fuentes

    Another example of liberal tolerance.

    • jerry1944

      Yes the same kind those peace loving muslummm have

  • Bandido13

    Liberal pukes! Get a “Go Fund Me” page started so us Texans can help out. Good luck.

    • Terry Butts

      I doubt a place like “Go Fund Me” would allow it remember they pulled past pages that sought help from crimes against the owners because of POLITICS actually claiming in one instance where the vandalism was over them answering a HYPOTHETICAL question about if a certain law was passed with “I WOULD OBEY THE LAW” if it passed as them having committed discrimination.

      The current political climate they act as if all gun owners are GUILTY of every shooting that happened for nothing more than demanding the BILL OF RIGHTS be obeyed by the government.

      So in a society where banks are DISCRIMINATING against gun makers and owners where social media sites are CENSORING anything that contradicts the lies from anti gun propagandist etc.

      I seriously doubt the site will allow a page to support gun owners or any business connected to gun ownership even when they are the victims of a blatant crime.

      How many Jewish businesses in Germany got the same treatment during the campaign against them under Hitler that this currant anti gun crusade is MIRRORING (right down to copying the propaganda simply changing the word(s) Jew/Jewish to GUN OWNERS/NRA) went without any criminal being prosecuted.

      • Bandido13

        Sadly, you are very correct sir!



    • IRKRIR

      Not only that, confiscate everything they own and sell it to repair the facility. Now, THAT would be justice…

  • bob winstead

    Do you know the difference between a libtard and a radical mudslime? Nothing, they will both kill you, lame you, burn you, or burn your buildings if you do not agree with them….

  • Michael

    I think we as conservatives, should remove anything associated with Malcom X, ( a POS and convicted felon)and other so called(POS) black leaders. So tired of the Democrats decade’s long Socialist agenda.

    • Bandido13

      I’m with you on all of the above. But, I’ll bet ya a couple a beers this was not done by a black man. This has liberal, white ANTIFA written all over it.

      • Michael

        I’m with you 100% but, I was referring to the Socialists agenda in general.

    • Uncle_Scrappy

      Blacks are finally starting to wise up and realize how they have been used for decades. We are seeing more and more older blacks finally realizing that Conservative Republicans are actually their Friends. All those Black demorats have ever done for them is just used them to advance themselves at their expense. That is why the demorats are now starting to go after the Hispanics and the Illegals cause they feel they can fool them for awhile as they continue their own personal agendas.

  • Art Hock

    I hope these rattlesnake bastards get caught and sued and placed in jail! Bloody cowards typical of all liberal pigs!

  • mdj357

    The Left be they called liberals, progressives, democrats or socialists have declared war on us and everything we hold in high regard such as the Constitution and Christian morals. Lock & load!

  • lisa pugh

    Ban fire. It killed the gun range.

  • justdave

    Don’t you just love it when libs can destroy things that bother them, and expect to be applauded for their “courage”? Some people are educated beyond their level of common sense. They believe they are right based on the expensive college they attended. Hopefully their common sense will catch up to their education level. I am not holding my breath though.

  • Alan404

    The ATF investigates arson, don’t they. This is not a Liberals v. Conservatives thing. Arson is a crime, firearms and shooting are involved in this crime, obviously well within the purview of the BATFE, aka the ATF. So once again where are they here.

    • jwright673

      That’s a good idea. Make it a hate crime too so other fed agencies can get involved to ferret these cowards out.

      • Alan404

        Think “the Feds” might actually earn their pay on this one?

        • rivahmitch


        • jwright673

          We can only hope. So far ATF and DEA haven’t been caught up in the scandals so getting involved in this case would do ATF some good. Especially if they are able to catch the turds who did the arson.

    • rivahmitch

      The ATF is a part of the Obamanoid Gestapo. Don’t trust them for a second.They’re no different from the IRS, the FBI, NSA, DHS or any other gestapo branch.

  • Big Ed

    It sure looks like we are headed for a Civil War. The leftists simply are not willing to live and let live, they want things to exactly match how they think they should be. They leave no room for any tolerance for failure to meet their desires. You don’t do as they say, they will hit you with a board, or shoot at you, or burn down your property. The media praises them and the Democrats pretend to ignore them (all the while, giving them the money they need to continue their evil). The Democrat Party is made up of terrorists, literally (Antifa, BLM, MS-13 and their Muslim Brothers) and the police largely ignore them. If you want your property protected, you are apparently going to have to protect it yourself. The Democrats started the first Civil War and they are well on the way to starting a second. This time, the only thing that makes sense is once it starts, kill every last one of them-no survivors.

  • randolph.poole

    Where was that little ass***e Hogg on the day in question?

    • jwright673

      He was probably at a post-arson celebration. That kid is the poster child for “spare the rod and spoil the child.” The four colleges that rejected him must have done a thorough background check on him.

  • abobinmn

    Liberals knno that intimidation and violence is all they have left.

  • jerry1944

    Yes rebuilt better and with more eyes to cover the field .Sime i lets those thug nfl games and the family and i find shooting ranges and skeet shooting to take its place and have a lot more fun than sitting in front of a T V Where they have the space they really have some great shooting ranges these days Some of the skeet shooting sites are great There is one we go to that you can never tail whats going to come out are if you shoot are not Really keeps you on your toes that one does Hope they have the space for one like that

  • Jim

    The “compassionate” left is the most violent group. NRA/Republicans/Conservatives/2nd Amendment, supporters do not engage in violence. They are law abiding citizens. Yet they are accused of exactly what the looney left organizations advocate and do. antifa, blm, and all george soros supported left wing orgs are instigators of violence to get their way. democRAT political candidates that do not denounce this must be voted OUT. The future of America is the hands of law abiding citizens, not the violent left.

    They need to catch the Communist Bastards! The stinking left wing SCUM!!!

  • Michael
  • The problem is using the term “arson” would depend on the laws of the state in which the crime is committed. As an example here in Virginia “arson” is a crime that carries the death penalty because of life involved or could be involved where as any fire set where no possible life is involved is classified as mulishness only carries a fine or less than one year.

  • rivahmitch

    Find out who did it and use them for target practice.

    • Patricia

      A waste of good bullets. Just use big rocks!

  • Steve

    When caught and convicted, I hope the judge orders them to work on the range to fix it as part of their punishment. It would rub a bit of salt in their wounds. Poetic justice.

  • jon

    Arson is a crime used by the left to cover up other crimes to have the expertise to do it in the why they did says this is not the first time they have done something like this before!

  • John Douglas

    Liberal , wait , Communist terrorists . Arson is terror in my book and off to Gitmo they go

    • Bandido13

      Thanks for taking the time.

  • Ive_Hadda_Knuff

    Let’s see how fast the government responds to this crime. If it were an abortion clinic burned down to the ground, the weight of Washington would already be there in full force!!

    • Patricia

      You nailed that one!

  • Bradley Luciani

    Anyone with information on the arson or those involved is being asked to contact the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office on the Funny Farm.

    Make sure cameras are installed and working and next time……DEFEND WHAT IS YOURS……

    Adolf Hitler — Took The Guns
    Nazi Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.
    Joseph Stalin — Took The Guns
    In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. By 1987 that figure had risen to 61,911,000.
    Benito Mussolini — Took The Guns
    “The measures adopted to restore public order are: First of all, the elimination of the so-called subversive elements. … They were elements of disorder and subversion. On the morrow of each conflict I gave the categorical order to confiscate the largest possible number of weapons of every sort and kind.
    Mao Tze Tung — Took The Guns
    China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952 10,076,000 political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated in Kuomintang China, and by 1987 another 35,236,000 exterminations were carried out under the Communists.
    Pol Pot — Took The Guns
    Cambodia established gun control in 1956. Between 1975 and 1979 2,035,000 “educated” people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. During the short four years of its rule in Cambodia, Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge government murdered over 31 percent of the entire Cambodian population.

    • Bradley Luciani

      jews were rounded up but not exterminated… died from malnutrition mostly due to sanctions.

      • rick meek

        Yes – they were worked to death but everyone FORGETS – In their hands – Americans – Russians – a lot of Europeans died but NO ONE Remembers them……

      • Terry Butts

        The SURVIVORS have stated they were divided into three categories
        1) Ones deemed USELESS sent to gas chambers disguised as showers.(exterminated)
        2) Ones set aside to be used in horrific medical experiments.(exterminated by torture in those experiments)
        3) Ones deemed fit for labor they were essentially pressed into slavery and barely given enough to stay alive.(most of them WORKED to death thus exterminated)

        The RECORDS discovered at the DEATH CAMPS confirmed this.

        Yet despite the METICULOUS records they kept at the camps the TESTIMONY of the survivors and all the PHOTOS and other evidence collected because the military commander that liberated the camps KNEW it was just a matter of time before people would DENY the atrocity ever happened people still try to DEFEND HITLER and blame those who stopped his “FINAL SOLUTION” from becoming imposed world wide for the deaths or just outright falsely claim the camps never existed.

  • Louis G. Valiante

    I have a suggestion. How about after they are caught, you elect one person to give this//or them, a colonoscopy and a vasectomy with a 45, and I bet my life you would not miss. One last thing, do not even call Johnson & Johnson, for a compress or a bandaid. Just remember this is a suggestion. But needed.

  • generalJed

    Surveillance cameras are relatively cheap, easy to hide, and can send video to recorders . In our area, vandals (young punks) destroy bathrooms at public recreation sites, archeological sites, etc.. Laws need to have increased penalties and huge fines attached to stop this senseless destruction. Examples need to be made. Unfortunately, cameras are the future. These punks are being brought up in a Godless society by parents who could not care less how their progeny turn out.

    • Terry Butts

      Unfortunately to many parents in today’s society let the government schools and television programing bring up their children.

      As for cameras they would have to have some sort of off site storage in a case like this as any on site storage and cameras would have burned to scrap if even that much was left. I have seen the results of what fire does to electronics there is little if anything left.

  • Michael Stock

    Should be considered a hate crime.

  • Michael Stock

    I don’t believe in go fund me but for this rebuild I would welcome making a contribution. Many other NRA members and lovers of the US Constitution surely feel the same.

  • Bert Bateman

    We don’t need more gun control. Just keep guns out of the hands of CRAZY PEOPLE.
    The nut pulling the trigger is the problem.
