Letter: Sickened by Hubbard
Even if BLM does establish a no-shooting area at Hubbard Mesa, they won’t be able to enforce it.
The Garfield County sheriff doesn’t care about Hubbard Mesa, and BLM law enforcement was/is nonexistent. Not one mention about funding for enforcement. If there is no budget money for enforcement, then the BLM is wasting everybody’s time.
Who wants to bring a guest to recreate out at Hubbard Mesa to see mattresses furniture, and shot-up appliances? So they can see how disrespectful local resident are to federal properties? Embarrassing.
Traditionally people are/were able to do whatever they want out there, and without any enforcement it is unlikely to change.
Start a dialogue, stay on topic and be civil.
