Residents still up in arms about gunfire noise


Acting Town Manager and police Chief William Hart said safety information has been posted in the areas where shooting occurs, offering ways to be safe and courses that are offered for gun handling and ownership.

Town Councilor Joe Green said the shooting has been an issue for a long time.

“This is a struggle for us,” he said. “One side are the rights of the people, but people also want to walk and enjoy the property and that has nothing to do with the shooting. We want to make everybody happy, but that is really hard to do.”

Officials say they are doing what they can within the confines of the law.

“We have officers out there at Musquash,” Farrell said. “The Council has been proactive as much as we can. We don’t want anyone to get hurt, but the state makes the rules and we have to follow them.”

For Homsey, that may not be enough.

“These are heavy shots, 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. it’s going, it’s not going down,” he said. “It’s a bad situation.”
