Stray bullets from gun club ruled a nuisance

June 8th, 2012 by Joseph William Singer

A Massachusetts trial court has banned a gun club from allowing pistols and rifles to be fired on its premises in the face of evidence that stray bullets have entered neighboring properties. Read article Justice Charles Hely converted a three-year-old temporary restraining order into a permanent injunction and ordered payment of a total $22,000 in damages to be paid to several neighbors who lived within a half-mile radius of the club. One plaintiff narrowly escaped being hit by a bullet that entered her laundry room shortly after she left it. The club had also been shut down for failure to obtain necessary permits.
